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.

Working with people who experience anxiety is something that I find very fulfilling. Anxiety can lead people to feel like an inferior version of themselves, affecting social interactions, familial responsibilities, work performance, and confidence in general. Stress is something that we need in our lives, to a certain degree. Without it, we would not have the motivation to do what needs to be done; excessive amounts of stress, however, can lead us to flight, fight, or freeze. Recognizing how stress affects us, and how to manage it in a way that promotes well-being is something that can be learned in therapy.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.
