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!

Our lives are sometimes difficult and the resulting stress has negative effects on our minds, bodies and relationships. However, there are lifestyle tools that can help us to better cope. Talking with a therapist can be useful as a way, to not only have an accountability partner as you make healthy lifestyle changes, but also explore the underlying issues that could be causing you to experience both episodic and chronic stress. If you think that you are negatively suffering from stress and could benefit from therapy, please contact me and we can explore how I can help

Kitchener, Ontario N2H 6J1 | 519-503-0400

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.

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.

Psychotherapist

21 Lydia, Kitchener, Ontario N2H 1V2 | 519 7453602

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.

Everyone worries but true anxiety is much more intense and distressing. If you struggle with anxiety, your brain and your body respond in a way that signals that you are in danger, even though sometimes rationally you know that we are not. There is hope that the symptoms can be lessened, managed and even overcome but it is hard work. As a Registered Psychotherapist I can help you. In therapy it is important to find the root causes for the intense anxiety that you are feeling and relearn how to respond in a different way. However, our first step is stabilization- this means learning how to calm and sooth your body through self-awareness, psychoeducation and finding relaxation techniques that work for you. Together we can learn new skills, gain new insights, and heal from past traumas.

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.

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.

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.

Stress and anxiety when present within healthy limits can stimulate, motivate, challenge, warn and activate our bodies to react accordingly to the situation. When it's too much, too intense and for too long, stress and anxiety lead to poor functioning, impairment and exhaustion resulting in stress and anxiety overload, contributing heavily to triggering anxiety disorders. In my therapy, I use therapeutic approaches and techniques that help reduce stress and anxiety and enhance the quality of your life and build your emotional resilience. You develop skills to minimize distress and maximize efficacy in many areas of your living and live life in a happier and healthier manner
