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.

Anxiety, stress and trauma are The Refuge's main areas of focus. Our holistic approach will help you address not only the mental aspects of anxiety and stress (core beliefs, negative thoughts, expectations and demands, etc.), but also their emotional and physical/somatic components. We can help you build resiliency through mindfulness, emotion regulation and distress tolerance skills that help you understand how to read and respond to the non-verbal cues in your body and nervous system. If you have been conditioned to override or ignore your needs in order to caretake for others, we can support you to honour yourself while also attending to your commitments in a balanced way.

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.

We live in a world and time where unfortunately, anxiety and stress has become a mainstream challenge in today's culture. We are bombarded with expectations and pressures that are unrealistic and harmful to our mental health. As a result, anxiety and stress are the consequences of these pressures. I can help decrease your stress and anxiety though talk-therapy, through practical strategies such as relaxation and meditation techniques as well as through relationship stresses that can hinder your progress. I can be a sounding board, where I can see your situation from a different angle and can offer you a listening ear and practical strategies to help you cope better.

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.

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.

Feeling stressed and anxious are normal reactions to too much pressure, lack of control and not knowing how to cope with a situation. Sometimes emotions are overwhelming when challenges persist, and if they seem to block you from living a positive and satisfying life, you might wish to seek help. Sometimes we think ourselves into stress and anxiety by worrying about what MIGHT happen, but stress and anxiety can also be triggered by events, such as trauma or certain medications. Please allow me to help you understand your stress situation and find manageable solutions to reduce your sensation of pressure and anxiety. 905-842-3626

My approach is an holistic one that encompasses attitude and thought-processing with practical ways to alleviate anxiety. Though seemingly simple and a simplistic perspective of "half empty/half full" this ill help to change feelings and your behaviour will change by "doing" something different from past habitual reflex reaction. Hence, training for new body/muscle responses and kinetic movement are part of this core method to/ for change.

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.

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.

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.
