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!

Chronic anxiety can be caused by personal history and/or heredity. The cause I want to focus on is chronic stress (or stress over time). Being stressed with no respite for a long time can make it difficult to control any anxious thoughts, leading to increased worry. We may start to experience physical symptoms such as tension headaches, muscle tightness, and digestive issues. Sleep problems can develop that may lead to increased anxiety. A vicious cycle starts. When we experience this level of anxiety/cycle for at least six months, and it focuses on two more areas of our life, we may be suffering from Generalized Anxiety Disorder.

In N2G 2R4 - Nearby to Wellesley.

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.

Registered Social Worker and Psychotherapist

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.

Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying)

In N2H 3Z2 - Nearby to Wellesley.

Anxiety is a healthy emotion part of normal human functioning. It allows us to appropriately respond to situations based on the level of threat perceived (i.e. not running a red light). However, when the emotion elicited by a specific situation or event is disproportionate to the actual level of threat, individuals may experience higher levels of stress. The anxiety can become unhealthy and even impair daily functioning. Through using a Solution Focused and Cognitive-Behavioral approach, my goal is to help individuals with process of stress management, and further explore the thoughts and/or beliefs underlying the anxiety. Together we will develop strategies to build a healthy life balance.

In N2H 1V2 - Nearby to Wellesley.

Anxiety has many sources and can mean many different things. It is always experienced physiologically in the same way, no matter the source or meaning. Anxiety arises when we move into unknown territory. This is normal. It arises when something of value to us is threatened. We can think of this as "sacred" anxiety. Or we can become anxious about being anxious, worried about things over which we have no control. This is neurotic anxiety. I work with people to first understand the source and meaning of their anxiety. Then work to help them learn to calm the anxiety down in order to take appropriate action in dealing with its source.

Often we are bombarded by stressful life circumstances that can steal our peace. Many of us have come through very painful and challenging experiences that have shaken our ability to create safety. All of which leave us vulnerable to anxiety and we can easily find ourselves in a constant state of panic. In our approach, we support you to make sense of these feelings and get them to work for you rather than against you. As we make sense of our fears and learn ways to create internal safety, we can create a peace that comes from the inside out. Like the quote says " I am not afraid of the storms, for I know how to sail my ship." Our work is to strengthen your ability to sail the storms.

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.

With regards to Anxiety, we will work together to explore what stressors and triggers create and feed your anxiety. Some level of 'exposure' therapy may be used along with a 'mindful' approach to learn how to 'BE WITH your anxious symptoms in that 'moment' of challenge and 'ride the wave' to a better place. Everyone experiences stress and some stress is good for us. But what do you do with the overwhelming kind? I tend to use a Mindfulness approach to stress, again being in the moment, and being okay with what you are experiencing. We'll also work to reduce that stress too.
