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.

Anxiety can make one feel immobile as fear of the future can be crushing and cause sensations of panic. In a collaborative and supportive environment, we will develop goals and use therapeutic approaches which are designed to help you move toward your future. Stress has been linked to many physical disorders, reducing stress in your life can be overwhelming and you may not know where to begin. Mindfulness is an approach in which we will spend time discovering how you feel and what you think may be linked to your stress. Mindfulness is also an approach in which you may find a way to manage your stress.

In relational psychotherapy, we spend a lot of time on relational feelings. They turn up in your daily relationships with your family, friends, and co-workers. We'll look at what happens in those interactions that leaves you feeling badly about yourself and make you feel anxious or stressful.

Mindfulness-based therapy is the primary approach I use with clients to provide tools and skills for managing and reducing stress and anxiety. For stress and anxiety issues, it is important to realize that most stress and anxiety is caused by mental habits and specific thoughts, and addressing those thoughts - and changing them - is a very effective way of learning to manage your anxiety.

Anxiety can be paralyzing. It can prevent us from leaving unhealthy relationship, continuing our education, building new connections. It just leaves us filled with doubt, confusion and muscle tension. I propose a three part approach: 1- Using CBT to take control of ourselves by learning new coping skills, new ways of thinking and to keep the anxiety in place. 2-Learning to set and keep boundaries to improve our relationships and feel safe and respected. 3- Using Direct Neurofeedback to retrain the brain and stopping it from over using the neural networks that keep us acting, feeling and thinking the same ways all the time.

Anxiety, fear and stress are common, but sometimes challenging, experiences to work through. While many people get frustrated with themselves for these natural, human experiences, a little support can go a long way. I use treatments proven to help people build and/or enhance their own cognitive, biological, or social/emotional tools and resources for coping with anxiety, fear and stress so that they can be more effective, whatever comes up. This is not only empowering but, ironically, it helps reduce anxiety, fear and stress by reducing our feelings of anxiety or fear ABOUT anxiety, fear and stress.

Anxiety is a normal reaction to stress. It helps one deal with a tense situation in the office, study harder for an exam, or keep focused on an important speech. In general, it helps one cope. But when anxiety becomes an excessive, irrational dread of everyday situations, it has become a disabling disorder. These are typical symptoms that can help you identify an anxiety problem: * Sweaty palms * Muscle tension * Fast heart-bit and chest pain * Dizziness * Flushed cheeks * Difficulty breathing The physical sensations appear along with thoughts which undermine the ability to cope and overestimates risks. My treatment includes CBT, mindfulness and hypnotherapy.

When we experience situations that challenge our physical and emotional well being beyond its ability to cope, we experience stress. Stress can negatively affect our immune system potentially leading to cardiovascular issues, depression and anxiety. Learning skills to cope with stressful situations, such as meditation, mindfulness and relaxation, can help. People may also get caught up in unhelpful emotions and thoughts. They may feel negative towards life, be fearful, or be pre-occupied with predicting and controlling the future. A therapist can help you work through unhelpful cognitions and learn skills to reduce anxiety.

Stress and anxiety are the biggest preventable causes of unhappiness and illness. They poison your relationships, self-esteem, health, and happiness. The goals in helping you manage your stress/anxiety are to understand what your personal reaction to anxiety-provoking situations are, identify what your related concerns are, and learn to "let go" of anxiety. I will help you become more aware of the internal self-talk and how your thoughts affect your feelings. Thoughts affect feelings - feelings affect actions.

Anxiety and stress take a hold on you and never let go, leaving you trapped and frozen. I help my clients to learn all about the magic of mindfulness practice. It's one of the most effective ways to put you in control of your emotions, rather than them controlling you. Imagine how great it would be to have an internal place of peace and serenity that you can use at any time to relax and become grounded. Mindfulness is an ancient practice that is also supported by scientific empirical studies. It's one of the best ways to change your life.

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.

Often we are bombarded by stressful life circumstances that can steal our peace. Many of us have come through very painful and challenging experiences that have shaken our ability to create safety. All of which leave us vulnerable to anxiety and we can easily find ourselves in a constant state of panic. In our approach, we support you to make sense of these feelings and get them to work for you rather than against you. As we make sense of our fears and learn ways to create internal safety, we can create a peace that comes from the inside out. Like the quote says " I am not afraid of the storms, for I know how to sail my ship." Our work is to strengthen your ability to sail the storms.

Stress and anxiety when present within healthy limits can stimulate, motivate, challenge, warn and activate our bodies to react accordingly to the situation. When it's too much, too intense and for too long, stress and anxiety lead to poor functioning, impairment and exhaustion resulting in stress and anxiety overload, contributing heavily to triggering anxiety disorders. In my therapy, I use therapeutic approaches and techniques that help reduce stress and anxiety and enhance the quality of your life and build your emotional resilience. You develop skills to minimize distress and maximize efficacy in many areas of your living and live life in a happier and healthier manner

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.
