My approach to stress and anxiety is a gentle, body-based talk therapy. When we become stressed and anxious we can feel hijacked by our thoughts and physical sensations. I help my client's engage their body and their mind in a way that allows them to listen and make sense of the sensations in their body, the feelings and thoughts generated in anxious or stressed states. With a heightened awareness and understanding of themselves client's can learn to reduce and manage the physical sensations associated with stress, anxiety and old patterns keeping them stuck. The sense of control that this brings assists clients in being able to respond to their needs without being overwhelmed.

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.

We live in a society that can put a lot of pressure on us to perform (say, at work, or with friends and family). Sometimes it's difficult for us to be who we "really are" and still perform to the standards we feel are expected of us. Understandably, this can lead to stress and anxiety (perhaps also depression, which often goes hand-in-hand with anxiety). There are a lot of ways that we can be triggered, and psychotherapy allows us to become aware of what they are, where they come from, and how we might be able to find who we "really are" with that.

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 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.

Racing thoughts. Restless nights. Exhaustion. Do these words resonate with your experience of anxiety? I am here to help. Anxiety is a very common experience. My work with anxiety involves a two-pronged approach – short-term coping strategies and dealing with root causes for anxiety and stress. Working in the here-and-now, we will work with your emotions to identify the deeper issues that are at the heart of your anxiety and help move you towards healing and inner transformation.

I am an expert in working with anxiety and stress-related concerns. I practice from a mindfulness-based approach, specifically drawing upon MBCT. This gentle approach emphasizes the health benefits associated with cultivating deeper awareness in the present moment through breathing, relaxation, and meditative exercises. I also utilize CBT, neurophysiological research, and Kundalini yoga to offer clients effective stress management skills. I additionally offer information to teach clients the physiological aspects of the stress response to increase their understanding and ability to self-regulate such processes so they see lasting change in their lives.

If you suffer from anxiety you are very aware of your physical symptoms of jitters, tension, increased heart rate, and light-headed-ness. In your mind you tend to overestimate danger, underestimate your ability to cope and have catastrophic thoughts. Usually an event that triggered panic brings you for help. While I can provide tools that can help you learn to reduce your anxiety, reflecting on your relationship with yourself and others will help you make personal transformation. For example the fear of being alone after a long term relationship ends, can lead to panic about your future. Addressing what happened in that relationship & past relationship patterns will help you learn your needs

Residential Addiction Program

Toronto, Toronto, Ontario M5E 1W7 | (647) 479-4347

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.

In many cases, an integrative approach of cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT) and psychotherapy is used to help you manage stress and anxiety. Cognitive-behavioural therapy aims to help you change your emotional response and behaviour by changing your thoughts. If our thoughts happen so quickly and automatically, how can we change a stress response that is perpetuated by such challenging or negative thoughts? Using cognitive-behavioural strategies, we can slow down the thought process by creating a heightened awareness of them. As we observe them, we can make significant changes in our automatic thoughts, and subsequently, change our emotional response and the way we respond as a result.

Anxiety is an umbrella term for several conditions, including panic disorder, phobias, and social anxiety disorder. Experiencing some anxiety or depression in your life is to be expected. However, if it feels like it is stopping you from being the person you wish to be you can explore what helps to enjoy being comfortable in your own stride. You may find that your anxiety helped you in a way that is difficult to imagine right now such as hiding really sad feeling. What can be a great starter to helping you with your anxiety is learning how to manage it by shrinking it down with specific exercises with your mind and body. They are fun as well as effective and the most important thing is that I help you to learn how to do them away from the office.
