Anxiety and Stress are aspects of everyday life and can be useful. When worry, fear and stress symptoms begin to "take over", they lead to states of distress that prevent you from reaching personal goals and enjoying life. There are many strategies for managing both Stress and Anxiety and I can help you find those that work best for you. When you learn to master these strategies, they become "second nature" and you can begin to focus on what really matters.

Stress and anxiety can have a negative impact on an individual and their health. Without proper support and understanding, an individual can struggle with their daily functioning or even get physically ill. Fortunately, talking it out and exploring the anxiety and the stress through counselling can also help individuals who battle stress on a regular basis. Counselling can help you gain perspective on your current thought patterns and coping skills, while also working to give you the advantage over the stress and anxiety.

Stress and anxiety are one of the most common issues that people struggle with. It can feel overwhelming to be alone with all of those feelings. I can help examine what is contributing to these feelings, and whether there are underlying issues that are bothering you. Often anxiety occurs when our life and our values and goals are not in line. I can help in examining lifestyle choices that may need changing to help lower anxiety symptoms. I also help people examine how their style of thinking contributes feelings of stress and anxiety.

Perhaps you are you so busy keeping up with life that you feel your own sense of balance and health has been left behind. Perhaps you don't feel you are in the right place in life, that the way life is right now doesnt work for you, or you are stressed about specific life situations. It leaves you feeling anxious and worn down. You want to work toward aligning and engaging with a sense of fit and calm in your life and to get life working in your favour.

Everyone gets anxious. Stress is part of our everyday life. Feeling anxiety and stress is normal, it's part of being human. Constant anxiety, excessive worry, panic attacks, constant nervousness that interferes with your performance, anxiety that paralyses you from doing the things you enjoy, fearful of leaving the house, constant checking, obsessing over and over about a problem, are signs your anxiety may benefit from counselling help. Mindfulness stress reduction focuses on being in the moment and reducing the over-reading of body sensations. Clients are coached in developing positive thoughts (MCBT) and practical behavioural action plans to lower anxiety and be more productive.

Everybody worries. But when your stress level is crippling or you go out of your way to avoid anxiety-producing situations, it's time to make a change. Stop the overthinking and gain control of your stress, by becoming aware of what you're telling yourself and replacing it with more accurate and helpful thoughts, slowing your mind down, and taking action to reduce or even eliminate the sources of your stress and anxiety. It may seem overwhelming, but you'll be amazed at how quickly you can start to feel better once you take the first few steps. Your mental and physical health are too valuable - call now to put the anxiety and stress behind you, and start enjoying life again.

Failure to live up to sexual expectations can be a major cause of personal stress and relationship anxiety. Whether the causes are psychological or physical, sex therapy can be an excellent source of help and information. It is my goal to provide the resources and guidance to help clients overcome these obstacles that prevent them from having a fulfilling sex life.

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.

When it comes to treating anxiety disorders, research shows that therapy is usually the most effective option. That’s because anxiety therapy, unlike medication, treats more than just the symptoms of the problem. Meristem can help clients uncover the underlying causes of their worries and fears; learn how to relax; look at situations in new, less frightening ways; and develop better coping and problem-solving skills. Our approach gives clients the tools to overcome anxiety and teaches them how to use them. Since anxiety disorders differ considerably, therapy is tailored to our clients' specific symptoms and diagnosis.

Anxiety and stress may be robbing you of peace of mind and interfering with you ability to enjoy your life. These issues are quite common in my counselling practise. I use emotionally focused, cognitive behavioural, solution focused, mindfulness and narrative therapy. All of these models are helpful in treating anxiety but I get to know you first and choose a method of working that is most helpful for you as a unique individual.

Research has shown that if left untreated, children with anxiety disorders are at higher risk to perform poorly in school, miss out on important social experiences, and engage in substance abuse. This is why I believe that when working with children/youth and adults who are struggling with anxiety and stress, it is very important to teach coping skills. We cannot always control what happens to us, but by learning how to cope with stress and anxiety, we can help children and youth to respond in a productive manner.

Everyone experiences stress, and stress can be positive motivation to get things done. But when stress escalates it can be experienced as anxiety. Anxiety can arise when we lose touch with our feelings. In an anxious state, our bodies produce cortisol, leaving us in a fight or flight state. I try to help people understand the nature of their stresses and regulate stress through meditative, mindful or breathing practices. We explore the internal experiences – the feelings and emotions that escalate stress into anxiety. Learning to address these feelings gives us tools to deal effectively with challenging feelings, thereby developing a healthy sense of inner awareness and control.

Anxiety is a persistent and irrational thought or feeling that can significantly impact an individual's everyday functioning. My approach to helping clients is to first recognize the anxiety provoking thoughts or content. This is mindfulness and helps clients become aware of what may be triggering their anxiety. From here, clients are invited to develop effective strategies to silence their anxiety using mindfulness, meditation, compassion-focused exercises or engagement in more meaningful activities. If clients are willing, I also encourage exploring the underlying roots of their anxiety.
