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.

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.

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.

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.

Anxiety often hits us unexpectedly. We might manage stress well enough until at some point the body's resources seem to get diminished and the body starts to talk back. Some symptoms of Anxiety & Stress might be: difficulty breathing, sleeping and/or eating; restless mind; negative thoughts and tumultuous emotions. The work I find most helpful to improve your skills for dealing with these fear-based emotions; includes cultivating a better relationship with your body and your emotions. As you become more aware of your actual limitations and pay greater attention to your needs, your body can achieve a more balanced state.

Anxiety and stress are often connected. Adults experience anxiety and stress and so do children and teens. Cognitive Therapy is key to dealing with anxiety and stress and preventing it from reoccurring. It's important to challenge your negative thoughts through self-talk and other skills that will be developed. As well, breathing techniques and relaxation strategies will be taught in order to teach the client how best to cope with anxiety and stress as they are experiencing it.

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.
