Registered Social Worker MSW RSW

Kitchener, Ontario

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.

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

Leanna Callum, MSW, RSW

Registered Social Worker, Art Therapist

Leanna’s approach to treating stress and anxiety is to explore the context of the distress and to target areas of emotional and thought processing in order to increase coping skills. This effective approach uses cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), mindfulness, and other emotional processing and self-awareness-based therapies to disable the stress and anxiety response of the mind and the body. This approach helps to explore the roots of stress and anxiety, providing effective and lasting change.

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.

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.

Tressa Porter, M.A.

Registered Psychotherapist and Consultant

Available for Online Therapy

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.

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.
