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.

When your anxiety and stress interfere with your daily life, it is time to reach out and courageously ask for help. Together we will work on recognizing the reason you feel as you do, your triggers, and ways to change your response to them. We will adopt some stress-management techniques and look at possible lifestyle changes. Some of the approaches and treatments we can use include cognitive behavior therapy (CBT), Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), and Interpersonal therapy (IPT)

I utilize Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) to treat anxiety and stress. CBT is a goal oriented, client-centered approach to an individual’s personal circumstances and experiences. Once the various skills are taught, they can be easily applied to many aspects of a client’s life. Study results have indicated that as few as 3-6 sessions of CBT will have a significant impact on issues such as depression and anxiety.

Stress and anxiety is a part of everyone's day to day lives. However, when it becomes difficult to function due to loss of sleep, change in appetite, panic attacks, upset stomach, aches & pains, etc. therapy can be most beneficial. I use various relaxation techniques, deep breathing, mindfulness meditation, as well as talk therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy techniques (addressing self defeating automatic thinking patterns which effect our mood and behavior). I can teach you how to manage unpleasant symptoms related to 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.

My approach is holistic that encompasses attitude and thought-processing with practical ways to alleviate anxiety. Though seemingly simplistic a perspective of "half empty/half full" this helps to change cognitive processing and feelings and self-mastery in incremental behaviour change by "doing" something different from past habitual reflex reaction. Hence, training for new muscle-memory responses and kinetic movement forms part of this core method to effect positive change. Trying to meet unreachable expectations defines anxiety. This chasm between expectation and reality is the task of therapy. Deep breathing good sleep hygiene nutrition and daily exercise leads to wellness and balance

In working with individuals who struggle with anxiety, I use both a cognitive behavioural therapeutic (CBT) approach and eye movement desensitization reprocessing (EMDR) therapy. The principal aim of cognitive behavioural therapy is to increase awareness that thoughts and behaviour drive emotion. My aim is to increase consciousness of distorted perceptions, and then assist individuals in rebalancing those perceptions to be more accurate. EMDR focuses specifically on reprocessing traumatic memories that are at the root of the anxiety. Through EMDR individuals can come to terms with traumatic and distressing memories that underlie anxiety.

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.

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.

Life is hard. It can also be wonderful. Flux and flow. Often anxiety is created by a faulty belief system, and by the way the human brain works...I will explain in session...with what we now know about the brain and how it works, we know that we have a lot more power over our thoughts than we used to think we have. We CAN begin to shift our thinking. Yes, sometimes medication is also needed, especially as we learn how to have more control over our thoughts.

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.
