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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
