Individual, Couples, and Family Counselling

28 Weber Street, Unit 2, Kitchener, Ontario

It is normal to worry and feel stressed about life's problems and pressures. But when compounded symptoms begin to overwhelm us to the point where we are getting headaches, heart palpitations, a churning stomach, cold sweats, sleepless nights, weight loss, obsessive thoughts, a distressed GI tract - then we need help to break the adrenaline-fear cycle. Anxiety feeds on fear and needs to be confronted, appropriately and safely, with relaxation techniques, new perceptions and constructive thinking patterns. A counsellor can help you do this.

Anxiety Counsellor

Janeen Weatherhead, RP, CCC

Registered Psychotherapist & Canadian Certified Counsellor

I believe we all have moments in our lives when we experience stress and anxiety. Every single one of us could benefit from tools taken from mindfulness exercises as I do in my personal life. I tend to address these issues from a teaching and practicing approach with clients. Its one thing to suggest and explain something, but there has been greater success when we try it out together in session. I have used role play exercises from time to time when the client feels it would be beneficial to decrease the intensity of their anxiety. I love when my clients confidence starts to build because they have implemented what we have practiced in session and learned that it works!

Our lives are sometimes difficult and the resulting stress has negative effects on our minds, bodies and relationships. However, there are lifestyle tools that can help us to better cope. Talking with a therapist can be useful as a way, to not only have an accountability partner as you make healthy lifestyle changes, but also explore the underlying issues that could be causing you to experience both episodic and chronic stress. If you think that you are negatively suffering from stress and could benefit from therapy, please contact me and we can explore how I can help

Anxiety, stress and trauma are The Refuge's main specializations. Our holistic approach will help you address not only the mental aspects of anxiety and stress (core beliefs, negative thoughts, expectations and demands, etc.), but also their emotional and physical components. We can help you build resiliency through mindfulness, emotion regulation and distress tolerance skills that help you understand how to read and respond to the non-verbal cues in your body and nervous system. If you have been conditioned to override or ignore your needs in order to caretake for others, we can support you to honour yourself while also attending to your commitments in a balanced way:

Anxiety Counselor

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

At Home or Private Discreet Intensives

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 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.

Stress and anxiety are normal physical responses to protecting yourself and keeping ourselves safe. But if we are excessively worrying or constantly anxious, the stress stops being helpful and can start causing damage to your mood, your productivity, your health, your relationships, and your overall quality of life. If you are feeling overwhelmed by stress and/or anxiety, lets talk to see how I can help.

Anxiety Counsellor

Rhonda Kane, R.N.B.Sc.N., MTS(PCC), RMFT, RP

Registered Marriage and Family Therapist

587 Leighland Drive, Waterloo, Ontario

Anxiety is what we experience on an emotional and physical level as a response to stress, Although anxiety can be helpful to motivate and activate us when needed, it can also be distressing to us if we do not learn to regulate it effectively. Rhonda uses a variety of techniques to teach individuals how to down-regulate the negative effects of stress and up-regulate the positive feelings that generate relaxation and peace. Clients are taught how to do breath work, use positive imagery, practice mindfulness, and use simple biofeedback techniques often enhanced through the use of EMDR and other therapeutic equipment. Rhonda will work with your unique needs to tailor a program just for you.
