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.

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.

Like depression, anxiety is a normal feeling. When faced with a new situation it is normal to feel anxious. You might feel jittery, sweaty, tense, or have butterflies in your stomach. When anxiety becomes paralyzing or prevents you from enjoying life, it is time to get help. Anxiety that prevents you from enjoying life is not something you need to carry. I will work with you to help you manage anxiety levels.

Many Canadians live with anxiety and intrusive thoughts. You can break free form your anxiety. There is nothing wrong with you. I believe that our anxiety stems form a part of our self that has a protective purpose. When that protection becomes over zealous and intrusive we call it anxiety. I can guide to to inner peace and understanding. I offer a compassionate place to grow and gain the strength to stand up to the unhelpful thoughts and live a life of emotional freedom.

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

Toronto, Ontario M5J 2T3 | 1-877-606-6161

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.

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.
