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.

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.

Getting your anxiety under control means understanding what anxiety is, where it comes from, why we have it and knowing how to adequately respond to it. Many people report feeling isolated a result of anxiety, some engage in unfulfilling, ineffective or unhealthy relationships, negative self-talk, negative feelings, judge and feel judged. They feel a sense of 'being broken' including low confidence and self-esteem. This is further fuelled by comparing themselves to others or looking for shortcuts to alleviate the mental and physical discomforts associated with anxiety.

Registered Psychotherapist

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.

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.

Anxiety Counsellor

Valiant Recovery, CCCCA

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.
