One of the great quotes about living is from the famed psychologist James Hillman "Happiness is knowing how to manage anxiety" . We all have anxiety and stress, if it is or becomes a problem, then it is important to build our capacity and understanding. I practice mindfulness with my clients when it comes to anxiety and stress because it has been show to reduce the side-effects and to begin to build some understanding in order to help manage the symptoms.

Susan Patten, M.Sc., R.P.

Registered Psychotherapist

320 Danforth Ave. Suite #202, Toronto, Ontario

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

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

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.

Anxiety and stress creep up on us when we feel overwhelmed and burdened by life situations such as – conflict in a relationship, significant changes and transitions, job dissatisfaction, illness, worry about our child’s development, difficulty resolving personal problems on our own. In therapy I will collaborate with you to understand the origins of your anxiety and alleviate your distress. You may need only a few sessions to get back on track. Or you may benefit from more in-depth sessions to help you work on developing the inner resilience that will help you cope with life's ups and downs.

Anxiety Counsellor

Allan Findlay, MSW, RSW

Registered Clinical Social Worker, Certified EFT Couple and Family Therapist

110 Eglinton Ave W. Suite 303E, Toronto, Ontario

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

In my practice, I use a high individualized and tailored approach to help you better understand the signs, symptoms, and patterns of your anxiety and develop stress and anxiety management strategies that can improve your overall quality of life.

Registered Psychotherapist-Individuals and Couples/Marriage Counselling

120 Carlton Suite 413 (Cabbagetown/Downtown area), Toronto, Ontario

Anxiety and stress is apart of our daily lives.Stress can help us run just a little faster or work just a little harder but sometimes that stress starts to take over and we can no longer function.All we can do is feel anxiety.We can't find the tools and resources within us to help us out of difficult situations and we don't even know where to look to calm ourselves down.So many of us stay silent and suffering out of fears that if we tell someone we will be judged harshly.The opposite is actually the case:this is the time when we must reach for a trained psychotherapist to help make sense of what is happening for us.Together we can find out what is going on for you and change can happen.

Sandra Lewis, MA

Psychotherapist, coach

There are many different kinds of anxiety and stress, from the so-called disorders (General Anxiety Disorder, Social Anxiety Disorder, Agoraphobia, OCD) to milder forms of anxiety that might include specific fears and phobias (snakes, heights, mice, bridges, planes, etc.). I work with all these conditions and have a very high success rate, using EFT and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. Please call if you would like to chat about my approach and success rate.

Anxiety Counsellor

Jaime Saibil, M.A.

Registered Psychotherapist & Cognitive behavioural therapist

180 Bloor street west, Toronto, Ontario

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 Counsellor

Carol Musselman, Ph.D., C. Psych.

Registered Psychologist

455 Spadina Ave. (at College), Suite 302B, Toronto, Ontario

Stress is a normal part of life. People experience anxiety when they feel unable to cope with the stressors they are facing. This may result from low self esteem, traumatic experiences, difficulty with relationships or life circumstances. Counseling will help you identify what triggers your anxiety, more effective ways of approaching difficult circumstances, and how to increase your resilience.

Anxiety Counselor

Tressa Porter, M.A.

Therapist and Consultant

Online Therapist / Coach

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.
