Anxiety, stress, and chronic worries are very common for people in today's fast paced, ever changing society. Anxiety, stress, and chronic worries impact wellness, relationships, quality of sleep, ability to achieve goals and activities of daily living, and leave people often feeling stuck with no where to turn. I can help you identify specific symptoms, triggers, hot thoughts, and will work with you to develop a tool box of coping strategies. I can help you manage your anxiety, stress, and chronic worries by enhancing goal planning, problem solving, assertive communication, reframing thoughts, and focusing on your self care.

Couple Counselling/Coaching and Family Mediation Specialist

In K2K 0A1 - Nearby to Lanark County.

My cross-training in counselling, conflict resolution, mediation and hypnotherapy can be very empowering for clients who come to my practice suffering from anxiety and stress. Unfortunately most people attempt to reduce their stress by choosing a form of pleasure that only leads them into more stress. I remind my clients that they can choose to utilize stress reducing techniques rather than stress increasing choices. Another common symptom is anxiety about becoming anxious again. I teach clients that if they focus on the present moment that this anxiety can be markedly reduced. I teach clients the techniques of getting a good sleep....the most important stress reducing factor.

Anxiety and stress are so pervasive in modern society, it is hard to even imagine not experiencing these things. Stress and some experiences of anxiety are "normal" (although I dislike using that word), however if you are finding that stress and anxiety are impacting your day-to-day functioning, it may mean you could benefit from some professional support. We will look at triggers for your anxiety and stress, and begin to understand your patterns of interacting with these unpleasant feelings. Ultimately, our goal will be to move towards a place of acceptance and coping.

Struggling with anxiety can rob your ability to function, as well as your enjoyment of life. I find the most effective approach to controlling anxiety to be a multi-dimensional approach. Often medication is very helpful, however other interventions are important to use alongside the medications. Working through your thoughts about the anxiety and how they are adding to the problem, for instance. Having taught relaxation techniques and stress management to people who suffer from chronic pain, I am also well aware of the beneficial effects of learning how to clear your mind through relaxation or meditation.

Mindfulness-based therapy is the primary approach I use with clients to provide tools and skills for managing and reducing stress and anxiety. For stress and anxiety issues, it is important to realize that most stress and anxiety is caused by mental habits and specific thoughts, and addressing those thoughts - and changing them - is a very effective way of learning to manage your anxiety.

Registered Psychotherapist; Individual and Family Therapist

In K2K 1L8 - Nearby to Lanark County.

Experiencing anxiety can vary from an unfocused sense of concern or worry to performance fears affecting school or work, panic attacks, stress, hypervigilance from trauma, or phobias. Physical and psychological symptoms generally feel out of control and are frustrating and fear-inducing, and can lead people to question themselves and their capabilities as well as limiting their enjoyment of life. I am experienced and specialized in supporting individuals, children and families to find their own strengths to use in regaining control of their life from the influence of anxiety, using a combination of psychotherapy and counselling approaches to fit each unique situation.

Dealing with anxiety and stress involves some understanding of the situation and what might be causing or contributing to a problem. Often it will be the unique way in which we think about something said to be our automatic thoughts and from there we learn to evaluate them for any sign of distortion. Our thoughts for example, may come across as catastrophizing or seeing only the worst in an event which will naturally lead to anxiety/stress. In counselling we can gain some valuable insight and achieve greater awareness learning to step back examining with a different lens and therefore expanding our perspective. This serves to allow for a more enlightened thought or mood to emerge.
