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.

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.

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.

Registered Masters Level Social Work Counsellor

In L1G 2V5 - Nearby to Scugog.

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. Email or contact us at www.jeffpacker.com for more helpful tips.

Registered Psychotherapist (Q)

In L1N 4P7 - Nearby to Scugog.

My approach to treatment of anxiety and stress is largely based on cognitive-behavioural interventions. Identifying and challenging unhelpful thinking patterns and negative core beliefs forms the basis of anxiety treatment, from the perspective that thoughts influence our feelings, which then influence our behaviours and actions. As such, by changing how clients think about a situation empowers them to gain confidence in their abilities and take control of their lives.

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 my approach, I 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.

Anxiety and stress are realities of our busy lives. They are frequently confused but are different. Stress can be positive but when overwhelming, it involves being overcome with multiple life pressures. Anxiety comes from being under stress and can feel like worry, fear, shortness of breath or a panic attack. I can help you understand how anxiety and stress are affecting your mind and body, prioritize self-care and self-compassion and learn to better cope.

Everyone feels anxious now and then. Anxiety can be a warning sign that your body senses danger or it could be an elixir motivating you to action. However, when you find you are constantly in a state of anxiety and this is having an impact on your relationships. Anyone might get anxious in these situations, but the person with an anxiety disorder has persistent or recurrent anxiety that prevents him or her from full participation in life. Anxiety can range from relatively mild to severe (frequent, disabling panic attacks). Severe anxiety disorders can lead the individual to alter his/her lifestyle to accommodate the anxiety. If your feelings of anxiety are extreme, last for longer than six months, and are interfering with your life, you may have an anxiety disorder.
