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.

While anxiety and stress in small amounts can be a helpful source of information, too much can become overwhelming and even interfere with our daily lives. Therapy can be a space to explore the impacts of anxiety and how it may have become engrained into your self-narrative. You and I can work together to co-create coping strategies that are unique to your specific situation. Contact me to book a free consultation so we can decide together if we would be a good fit.

Anxiety is a normal emotion. It’s your brain’s way of reacting to stress and alerting you of potential danger ahead. However many suffer from too much anxiety living in flight/flight affecting the nervous system in unhealthy ways. Working w old trauma and learning new ways of being in the here and now can lessen anxiety and stress. There are many tools that are helpful.

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.

Anxiety and stress cause significant conflict within a couples relationship. Often times it may induce feelings of anger, resentment, or perhaps helplessness and hurt. We can feel anxiety and stress within our relationship, or perhaps we feel like its "our" problem, or "their" problem. Here again we see the benefit of Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy. You do not need to go through this alone. There is a way forward if you are both willing to engage.

It begins with learning about anxiety & stress related challenges and mapping out how it affects you. You will then learn and practice new skills and techniques, such as problem solving, time management, mindfulness meditation, and balanced thinking to help you make adjustments in your thoughts, feelings, and behaviours. You will also learn how you can utilize your new skills to deal with problems/challenges in the future.

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.

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.

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.

Anxiety and stress is experienced at various levels and it is often influenced by our interpretations of our experience. The story we tell ourselves about the anxiety and stress in our lives matters. Have you told yourself, "Once this anticipated event is over with, then I'll be happy again,"? Perhaps you have found yourself caught in a 'What if' spiral. Anxiety is a human issue. It becomes problematic when it starts impacting your quality of life, preventing you from engaging in activities that matter to you, and leads to possible physical health concerns. My aim is to help you develop strategies to reduce the impact that anxiety and stress have on you when it arises.

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.
