When we worry a lot, we become apprehensive and fearful which can be a source of tremendous stress, and often causes us to withdraw from participation in our own lives. My approach to alleviating this stress is multi-faceted. Not only do you learn relaxation, de-stressing and meditative hypnotic techniques for addressing stress itself, I teach simple ways to cope, or even eliminate, root sources of Stress and Anxiety. With peace of mind and a better understanding of the way you interact with the people and situations around you gives you insight into real and rapid change, so you can focus on your life again.

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.

People often come to see me for psychotherapy in my downtown Toronto practice when they find that they are struggling with anxiety-related problems, such as panic disorder, social phobia, anxiety disorders, and the tendency to ruminate excessively. Psychotherapy helps individuals cope better with stress through the use of relaxation methods, and techniques to help regulate excessive anxiety.

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.

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.

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.

Feelings of stress and anxiety can be overwhelming. Anxiety disorders effect 20% of the population or 1 in 5 adults. Most anxiety disorders respond well to cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). This evidence based treatment can be relatively brief and provides good results. My approach will work toward helping you to feel less fearful and more confident. I provide a private and confidential process geared to your own pace and timing.
