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.

Registered Psychotherapist

489 College Street, Unit 308, Toronto, Ontario M6G 1A5 | 647-992-2253

My approach to stress and anxiety is a gentle, body-based talk therapy. When we become stressed and anxious we can feel hijacked by our thoughts and physical sensations. I help my client's engage their body and their mind in a way that allows them to listen and make sense of the sensations in their body, the feelings and thoughts generated in anxious or stressed states. With a heightened awareness and understanding of themselves client's can learn to reduce and manage the physical sensations associated with stress, anxiety and old patterns keeping them stuck. The sense of control that this brings assists clients in being able to respond to their needs without being overwhelmed.

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.

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.

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 Counselor

Cynthia Brady, BSW, MA, RSW

Registered Social Worker and Psychotherapist

Available for Online Therapy

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.

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 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.

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!

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.

Mindfulness-based therapy is the primary approach I use with clients to provide tools and skills for managing and reducing stress and anxiety. For stress and anxiety issues, it is important to realize that most stress and anxiety is caused by mental habits and specific thoughts, and addressing those thoughts - and changing them - is a very effective way of learning to manage your anxiety.

I use strategies from CBT and solution-focused therapy to help my clients address anxiety issues. This may involve using thought records or other tools to get clients to examine the basis of their stress and anxiety and explore how negative assumptions and negative internal dialogue may be contributing to their distress. I also focus on making positive lifestyle changes to build clients' resiliency and help them develop more functional coping strategies. I draw on my background in the health and fitness field to assist clients in achieving mind/body wellness through proper self-care (exercise, nutrition, stress management strategies, etc.)

Anxiety is our body’s response to danger. We see a grizzly in the woods and we hold our breath, our digestion slows down, we release cortisol and adrenalin in order to enable us to run fast if need be. These are our survival instincts and we need them, depending on the situation. For many of us, however, anxiety occurs even when danger isn’t present. Trauma survivors can experience a sense of imminent danger even when it’s not in front of them. They’re on high alert at all times. It’s exhausting. And most of us have experienced some form of trauma. If you are experiencing anxiety, you likely are not getting the support you need. Together we will explore how to get that support now.
