At Elim we use a Cognitive Behaviour Therapy approach for treating anxiety and depression. This model of therapy works on indirectly changing a person's feeling by changing their negative thoughts and maladaptive behaviours. As clients learn to identify and change their thoughts and behavior they report feeling less anxious and better able to deal with the stresses of life.

Residential Addiction Program

Ottawa, Ottawa, Ontario K0A 1K0 | 1-613-518-8131

Anxiety disorders commonly coexist with addiction tendencies. Anxiety can severely inhibit a person's life, causing them to feel an irrational amount of panic, fear and other negative emotions in any given circumstance. Severe anxiety may influence a person to avoid leaving their house, or to become paralyzed in situations they interpret as stressful. Many people who struggle with anxiety will try to self medicate with alcohol or drugs, which ultimately makes their symptoms worse. A dual diagnosis of addiction and anxiety requires special treatment considerations; the kind that Valiant Recovery provides.

Anxiety comes from many sources and affects all aspects of our lives. I work with clients to identify stressors, underlying patterns and dynamics affecting responses to stress, how stress impacts our bodies, our emotional health and relationships. Together we develop a plan to "lighten the load" in a realistic, productive and positive way. Clients feel empowered and ultimately understand how anxiety affects them, and how to deal with anxiety in the way that works best for them.

Experiencing anxiety can vary from an unfocused sense of concern or worry to performance fears affecting school or work, panic attacks, stress, hypervigilance from trauma, or phobias. Physical and psychological symptoms generally feel out of control and are frustrating and fear-inducing, and can lead people to question themselves and their capabilities as well as limiting their enjoyment of life. I am experienced and specialized in supporting individuals, children and families to find their own strengths to use in regaining control of their life from the influence of anxiety, using a combination of psychotherapy and counselling approaches to fit each unique situation.

Anxiety and Stress are the most common issues that I work with. Anxiety can take many forms so I will take the time to understand the specific type of anxiety with you.

We will also work towards exposing you gradually in a way that will allow you to be better able to tolerate your anxiety and live with it!

Living with anxiety and stress can become extremely disabling! Anxiety requires lots of energy and time consuming. Anxiety and stress can be explained by several factors, and if it not treated, and persist over time, the risks of burnout/depression are greater. If you are suffering from anxiety, you might know that it is now having an impact in all spheres of your life: work, relationships, social life, etc. Let's look closely at the causes of your anxieties, and let's work together to aim for a better quality of life.

Everyone feels anxiety at some point in their lives but when it starts to interfere with your life, counseling can help. Although anxiety can feel debilitating, it is treatable. People with anxiety don’t always share the same symptoms, they vary from person to person. Therapy will help you to reclaim your life and function in a chronically stressful world.

At Home or Private Discreet Intensives

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.

Struggling with anxiety can rob your ability to function, as well as your enjoyment of life. I find the most effective approach to controlling anxiety to be a multi-dimensional approach. Often medication is very helpful, however other interventions are important to use alongside the medications. Working through your thoughts about the anxiety and how they are adding to the problem, for instance. Having taught relaxation techniques and stress management to people who suffer from chronic pain, I am also well aware of the beneficial effects of learning how to clear your mind through relaxation or meditation.
