Anxiety is what we experience on an emotional and physical level as a response to stress, Although anxiety can be helpful to motivate and activate us when needed, it can also be distressing to us if we do not learn to regulate it effectively. Rhonda uses a variety of techniques to teach individuals how to down-regulate the negative effects of stress and up-regulate the positive feelings that generate relaxation and peace. Clients are taught how to do breath work, use positive imagery, practice mindfulness, and use simple biofeedback techniques often enhanced through the use of EMDR and other therapeutic equipment. Rhonda will work with your unique needs to tailor a program just for you.

With regards to Anxiety, we will work together to explore what stressors and triggers create and feed your anxiety. Some level of 'exposure' therapy may be used along with a 'mindful' approach to learn how to 'BE WITH your anxious symptoms in that 'moment' of challenge and 'ride the wave' to a better place. Everyone experiences stress and some stress is good for us. But what do you do with the overwhelming kind? I tend to use a Mindfulness approach to stress, again being in the moment, and being okay with what you are experiencing. We'll also work to reduce that stress too. Call today 519-503-0400 or email pattimoses@gmail.

Chronic anxiety can be caused by personal history and/or heredity. The cause I want to focus on is chronic stress (or stress over time). Being stressed with no respite for a long time can make it difficult to control any anxious thoughts, leading to increased worry. We may start to experience physical symptoms such as tension headaches, muscle tightness, and digestive issues. Sleep problems can develop that may lead to increased anxiety. A vicious cycle starts. When we experience this level of anxiety/cycle for at least six months, and it focuses on two more areas of our life, we may be suffering from Generalized Anxiety Disorder.

I believe we all have moments in our lives when we experience stress and anxiety. Every single one of us could benefit from tools taken from mindfulness exercises as I do in my personal life. I tend to address these issues from a teaching and practicing approach with clients. Its one thing to suggest and explain something, but there has been greater success when we try it out together in session. I have used role play exercises from time to time when the client feels it would be beneficial to decrease the intensity of their anxiety. I love when my clients confidence starts to build because they have implemented what we have practiced in session and learned that it works!

Stress: It’s a part of our everyday lives. You may experience panic attacks, feel overwhelmed - that you’re falling apart at the seams. You may be crippled with worry.

Let’s work together to learn a balanced approach to stress that will free you of your spiraling thoughts!

Anxiety, stress and trauma are The Refuge's main areas of focus. Our holistic approach will help you address not only the mental aspects of anxiety and stress (core beliefs, negative thoughts, expectations and demands, etc.), but also their emotional and physical/somatic components. We can help you build resiliency through mindfulness, emotion regulation and distress tolerance skills that help you understand how to read and respond to the non-verbal cues in your body and nervous system. If you have been conditioned to override or ignore your needs in order to caretake for others, we can support you to honour yourself while also attending to your commitments in a balanced way.

Anxiety and stress can make it very difficult to cope with daily challenges and can lead to avoidance behaviours. Too much anxiety can also contribute to physical health problems. Cognitive behavioural therapy is very effective in helping people understand their feelings and take steps to resolve unhelpful ways of thinking and responding. Counselling contributes to reduced worry and self-doubt, while helping people feel more positive and make better choices. With proper help, most people experience improvements in sleep and overall physical health.

It is normal to worry and feel stressed about life's problems and pressures. But when compounded symptoms begin to overwhelm us to the point where we are getting headaches, heart palpitations, a churning stomach, cold sweats, sleepless nights, weight loss, obsessive thoughts, a distressed GI tract - then we need help to break the adrenaline-fear cycle. Anxiety feeds on fear and needs to be confronted, appropriately and safely, with relaxation techniques, new perceptions and constructive thinking patterns. A counsellor can help you do this.

Often we are bombarded by stressful life circumstances that can steal our peace. Many of us have come through very painful and challenging experiences that have shaken our ability to create safety. All of which leave us vulnerable to anxiety and we can easily find ourselves in a constant state of panic. In my approach, I support you to make sense of these feelings and get them to work for you rather than against you. As we make sense of our fears and learn ways to create internal safety, we can create a peace that comes from the inside out. Like the quote says " I am not afraid of the storms, for I know how to sail my ship." Our work is to strengthen your ability to sail the storms.

Anxiety has many sources and can mean many different things. It is always experienced physiologically in the same way, no matter the source or meaning. Anxiety arises when we move into unknown territory. This is normal. It arises when something of value to us is threatened. We can think of this as "sacred" anxiety. Or we can become anxious about being anxious, worried about things over which we have no control. This is neurotic anxiety. I work with people to first understand the source and meaning of their anxiety. Then work to help them learn to calm the anxiety down in order to take appropriate action in dealing with its source.

While most treatment approaches for anxiety and stress are effective on the surface, they don’t treat the real problem. Mantras, deep breathing, and rational dialogues about your fear being irrational rarely work---for most people don’t believe it or you! Imagine if you can trick the brain into changing without you telling your conscious mind that you are changing it? Problem with anxiety and stress is that the brain in this state knows you want to change it and it resists. Contact Kevin@kevinfleminphd.com for the ultimate stress and anxiety solution that will literally change your brain's autonomic nervous system patterns while you sit on your butt. 877-606-6161.
