Anxiety is a part of everyone's life; afterall, if there was no anxiety at all, we would not rush to make it to work on time every morning, look both ways before we cross the street, and/or fear food that doesn't appear properly prepared. Anxiety is present in our lives to protect us; however, when anxiety become escalated to a point where we cannot effectively manage it, anxiety can become all consuming. Nancy can help you discover more about your anxiety, find ways of coping/managing it more effectively, and help you get into a much more relaxed state of mind.

Feelings of stress can make you feel anxious, afraid, worried and uptight. Any sort of change can make you feel stressed. For example, the lost of a job, your child leaving or returning home, the death of your spouse, divorce or marriage, an illness, an injury, a job promotion, money problems, moving, or having a baby. I will teach you to identify the necessary tools and skills, to renew your mind, have a new perspective and a new way of thinking.

While they can feel unpleasant, anxiety and stress can be great indicators that there is something happening that we are not okay with. There are several times throughout our lives when feeling stress or anxiety in a situation can be helpful, like when we are about to enter a dangerous situation. Sometimes, however, the amount of stress or anxiety we feel can get to me too much. When this happens, the helpful message that is being sent may become harmful. I teach clients to understand the messages that our stresses and anxieties are trying to send, and also what to do with those stresses when they become too much to handle.

My approach to treating anxiety & stress is to teach you how to face perceived or irrational unpleasant situations that you find threatening or in some way are triggering a negative outcome. Irrational & catastrophic thinking can paraIyze you from making healthy & productive choices in life. I teach you how to challenge your negative & irrational thoughts & behaviour that may be stopping you or paralyzing you from making more flexible choices & positive responses.This is done in a supportive & non threatening therapeutic environment & manner. The key to overcoming most anxiety problems is to reduce avoidance of situations that you fear & experience your fear in a gradual & controlled manner.

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.
