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.

Registered Social Worker, Therapist

12-421 Greenbrook Dr., Kitchener, Ontario

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 Counsellor

Janeen Weatherhead, RP, CCC

Registered Psychotherapist & Canadian Certified Counsellor

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!

Anxiety Counsellor

Bayridge Counselling Centre

Individual, Couples, and Family Counselling

28 Weber Street, Unit 2, Kitchener, Ontario

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.

Anxiety Counsellor

James Morgan, M.Div., M.A.Sc.


21 Lydia, Kitchener, Ontario

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.

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 Counsellor

Janice A. Graham, Ph.D., RCC

Psychotherapist - Professional Therapy by Phone & Email

Do you feel tense and uptight and want to be more relaxed? Stress is the result of overloading our capacity to cope. Anxiety and worry make us suffer for bad outcomes that have not even happened. Counseling will help you identify triggers and to relieve them in healthy ways. We will talk about anxiety attacks and flashbacks and hypervigilance. We'll look at your past for the roots of anxiety and stress. You may be taking meds (check with doctor first) or using alcohol or drugs or pot and want to deal with your feelings yourself. Do you want to strengthen your trust and faith that the world is mainly a safe place? Traumatic Incident Reduction (TIR) or EMDR are interventions we can discuss.

Anxiety Counsellor

Brooke Collins, MDiv.; RP

Registered Psychotherapist

100 Fergus Ave, Kitchener, ON N2A 2H2, Kitchener, Ontario

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.
