Stress is normal and useful. When we experience too much it is like a gas tank over-filling. This can be dangerous as even just a little stress ("spark") can trigger an anxiety attack or angry outburst. Managing stress and stress levels is very important. Remember, deep breathing... three to five 15-20 second breaths can calm and balance out body and emotion. Then, and only then, can we utilize the many other strategies available to lower stress, resolve problems and improve the relationships valuable to us.

Registered Psychologist

In M4T 1X3 - Nearby to Pickering.

Anxiety usually signifies perception of a threat. When anxious, we become aware of an external or internal threat. An external threat would be a situation that is perceived as dangerous (a negative performance evaluation) or an internal threat such as becoming aware of a negative thought or feeling (i.e. I'm ashamed for being a failure). Some degree of anxiety is normal under stress, however if you feel crippled and overwhelmed by it, you might wish to consider psychotherapy to learn effective strategies (Mindfulness, EMDR) ) to contain your anxiety. Therapy can help you understand causes of your anxiety and learn how to respond to anxiety-provoking situations with greater confidence.

Stress & anxiety are major barriers to living a full and satisfying life, and unfortunately becoming increasingly problematic in these fast-paced, uncertain times. Finding balance and relief from stressful, anxious patterns involves learning to understand thinking patterns and emotional responses, and cultivating tools to break the cycle of stress-related reactions. My therapeutic approach is holistic in nature, and involves learning to understand these negative patterns, as well as working with meditative and mindfulness techniques that promote awareness, relaxation and deeper connection with the self in order to find more balance and peace within the context of our busy lives.

Anxiety Counsellor

Liane Odze-Silver, MA, RP

Registered Psychotherapist

In M6C 3H1 - Nearby to Pickering.

Anxiety, panic and fear are feelings that clients can learn to understand and manage. However, building more fear on top of these feelings, can prevent clients from being able to be mindful of, present to and compassionate towards their difficult feelings. The safe non-judgmental compassionate attitude of the therapist helps to encourage the client to be accepting of her/his own difficult feelings and experiences. Examining negative thoughts and beliefs, and understanding situations or relationships that trigger anxiety can lead clients to see new choices for coping with discomfort. Successes in coping lead to a sense of empowerment and increased confidence for new challenges.

Therapist

In M4J 1P4 - Nearby to Pickering.

There is no way of getting around your feelings, only through them. So much of our anxiety stems from trying to avoid our uncomfortable feelings. But the more we face our fears, the more our anxiety subsides. We can confront these fears together in a safe space, where you will then feel empowered to confront them out in the real world too and in so doing, you can take back control in your life.

We live in a time of great change. How can one be calm while dealing with both global stress plus impacts from a personal history? Fear, anxiety and strain are understandable. What can therapy do to help? First, talking to a supportive therapist provides a safe place, a gentle setting to learn new skills for coping with what stresses you. Like learning a new muscle skill, therapy provides a place for developing peace of mind. It’s similar to meditation, yoga, contemplation or other such internal skills. You can then find new attitudes for living so fear, worry and stress can be dialed down, perceived more as teachers. Rather than unending anxieties you can find opportunities for new growth.

Anxiety and stress can be treated using a variety of techniques that look towards changing situations, thought patters, and behaviours that work to reduce both percieved and acutal stress/anxiety levels. Psychoeducation allows the client to obtain both the knowledge and skills that can be used to better manage stressors as they arise. As well, simply taking the time to vent your worries and concerns to an unbiased party can greatly help to immediatley reduce stress while allowing you to see the situation from a more realistic perspective.

Registered Psychotherapist

In L3P 0A6 - Nearby to Pickering.

Stress, anxiety, and panic attacks are all too common in our sometimes overwhelming day to day lives: partners, work, children, family and other stressors are constantly pushing us to the breaking point. We also can experience anxiety that seemingly comes out of nowhere, anxiety that seems irrational such as a fear of getting out of the house, shopping, being around people or strange places. I work with my clients to overcome these fears; not only do I help relieve the symptoms with tried and true CBT methods, but I also like to go a bit deeper and look for the causes of anxiety. When these causes are addressed, the anxiety is more likely to go away for good.

Many Canadians live with anxiety and intrusive thoughts. You can break free form your anxiety. There is nothing wrong with you. I believe that our anxiety stems form a part of our self that has a protective purpose. When that protection becomes over zealous and intrusive we call it anxiety. I can guide to to inner peace and understanding. I offer a compassionate place to grow and gain the strength to stand up to the unhelpful thoughts and live a life of emotional freedom.

Registered Psychologist

We all experience anxiety and stress. But anxiety becomes a problem when it involves ongoing worry that is hard to control; thinking the worst when the worst is unlikely to happen; exaggerated fears; a high level of discomfort in social situations; recurrent thoughts, images or impulses; trauma-based memories memories and fears; feelings of panic. Therapy for anxiety helps people reduce or eliminate the thoughts that trigger their anxiety; helps them to re-engage with situations that are being avoided or escaped from prematurely; and helps them to better manage inherently stressful situations.
