Stress and anxiety is a part of everyone's day to day lives. However, when it becomes difficult to function due to loss of sleep, change in appetite, panic attacks, upset stomach, aches & pains, etc. therapy can be most beneficial. I use various relaxation techniques, deep breathing, mindfulness meditation, as well as talk therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy techniques (addressing self defeating automatic thinking patterns which effect our mood and behavior). I can teach you how to manage unpleasant symptoms related to stress and anxiety.

Stress and to some extent anxiety is an undifferentiated word for an unclassified emotion - as we will learn in using Emotion-Focused Therapy. We will explore the role of the many stress responses, how they play out in helping and hindering life's goals and determine ways to use it adaptively rather than reactively. Often we fail at managing stress because of many limiting beliefs about ourselves or others, or we sense panic and imagined threats that we fear to process, and lack the skills to cope with the overwhelm that is life. We can expand our beliefs, assess panic/threats more realistically and encourage skill building for lasting change.

At Home or Private Discreet Intensives

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.

Stress can come from any event or thought that makes you feel frustrated, angry, or nervous. Anxiety is a feeling of fear, unease, and worry. The source of these symptoms is not always known. When it comes to stress and anxiety, there is some good news and bad news. The bad news is that unchecked, you can continue to develop severe anxiety and stress coping problems that can alter your quality of life. The good news is that even if stress causes you to experience severe anxiety, that anxiety can be addressed with the support and guidance of an experienced therapist.

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.

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

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 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.

Do your thoughts run in circles around you? Do “what-if?” thoughts haunt you while you’re trying to go to sleep? Does your mind remind you of an Emergency Broadcast System? Does worry set off internal alarms that resonate through your whole body? Does life pass you by as you drown in repetitive thoughts about work, relationships, health, etc? If you’ve answered “yes” to any of the questions above, please know that I understand and empathize. I have good news for you - there’s evidence-based therapy that can help. I can tell you from professional and personal experience that anxiety is treatable, through various approaches, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and mindfulness techniques.

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!
