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.

I will help you get used to feeling safe and confident within yourself in the here and now. So being present without anxiety can become your new norm!

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.

The unsettling energy, the shakiness, the constriction in the chest, the sweat, the tenseness, the palpitation and breathlessness that may at times seem almost impossible to control are all signs of deeper layers of feelings that need to be explored and expressed. There may be anger, sadness, shame, fear and even ungrounded excitement that are locked in and cannot come out in contact with the environment. In therapy we will create space, ensure the support that is needed to come back to the present moment and set the pace to get in touch with those feelings that are key for relief from anxiety and stress.

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.

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 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.

Everyone experiences stress, and stress can be positive motivation to get things done. But when stress escalates it can be experienced as anxiety. Anxiety can arise when we lose touch with our feelings. In an anxious state, our bodies produce cortisol, leaving us in a fight or flight state. I try to help people understand the nature of their stresses and regulate stress through meditative, mindful or breathing practices. We explore the internal experiences – the feelings and emotions that escalate stress into anxiety. Learning to address these feelings gives us tools to deal effectively with challenging feelings, thereby developing a healthy sense of inner awareness and control.

We all know "life happens." It's our reactions that makes all the difference in how we live our lives. If we can achieve a calmer state of mind and build up greater resilience, then you'll be better equipped to deal with the challenges that cause you stress and worry. You'll start to enjoy your life a whole lot more than you thought was possible. Healing is a process of growth and self-discovery and in our sessions, I promote behavioural transformation through various research-based methods that enable a person to "recode" the way their brain responds to situations and challenges. Influencing old and undesirable brain behaviours by reprogramming them with new attitudes and better responses.

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.

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 is internalized prolonged internal stress. Often people are afraid because they have never owned up to themselves. It is completely understandable with the world we live in today and all the expectations placed on we can often become overwhelmed. It can be a forever on going pressure from anything such as, ageing; being alone; illness losing a job/family member/possession. Things that require action can also be heavy stress factors; relationships; losing weight; intimacy; career. Our inner state of mind; feeling rejected, like a failure; low self-image. Etc. "This is not true you have handled everything up till now". Reaching out for support is the first step to creating change.

Stress in our lives may come from work, school, family, friends, or a host of other things. Unresolved stress can result in an emotional state that causes us to think, analyze, replay, and ruminate which leads to anxiety, loss of sleep, and more stress. If left unaddressed this can manifest itself in physical ways including nutritional deficiency, deterioration of the immune system, etc. I work with people to understand the root cause of anxiety and stress and to heal it. Ultimately healing can come from creating understanding through talk therapy, or from learning to quiet the mind using mindfulness mediation techniques, or both.
