Anxiety and stress, in and of themselves, are not bad things. In fact, they are both natural and necessary to living! Where stress and anxiety often become problematic is in our response to them, and when our coping strategies simply outweigh the demands of a situation. At New Roots Therapy, we can work with you to help change your relationship with anxiety and stress by focusing on what you can and can't control, helping you re-connect to the present moment through the use of mindfulness practices, and supporting you in the development of effective coping skills.

Do you feel the pain of overwhelming emotions in your body? Do you ever get a break from it? Do you wish it would just go away? Would you like to have some relief from that tension? Have you found that alcohol or drugs doesn’t cure it? Are you afraid that this has, or is going to, harm your health? It is important to deal with the causes of anxiety and stress, not just the signs and symptoms. It is important to do this to prevent or stop these feelings from damaging your health. I will work with you to isolate the causes of your stress and anxiety and follow through with a process to reduce the pain you feel. Our work together will bring about relief, calmness and peace of mind.

Everyone feels anxious now and then. Anxiety can be a warning sign that your body senses danger or it could be an elixir motivating you to action. However, when you find you are constantly in a state of anxiety and this is having an impact on your relationships. Anyone might get anxious in these situations, but the person with an anxiety disorder has persistent or recurrent anxiety that prevents him or her from full participation in life. Anxiety can range from relatively mild to severe (frequent, disabling panic attacks). Severe anxiety disorders can lead the individual to alter his/her lifestyle to accommodate the anxiety. If your feelings of anxiety are extreme, last for longer than six months, and are interfering with your life, you may have an anxiety disorder.

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.

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.

Anxiety can be paralyzing. It can prevent us from leaving unhealthy relationship, continuing our education, building new connections. It just leaves us filled with doubt, confusion and muscle tension. I propose a three part approach: 1- Using CBT to take control of ourselves by learning new coping skills, new ways of thinking and to keep the anxiety in place. 2-Learning to set and keep boundaries to improve our relationships and feel safe and respected. 3- Using Direct Neurofeedback to retrain the brain and stopping it from over using the neural networks that keep us acting, feeling and thinking the same ways all the time.

When we experience situations that challenge our physical and emotional well being beyond its ability to cope, we experience stress. Stress can negatively affect our immune system potentially leading to cardiovascular issues, depression and anxiety. Learning skills to cope with stressful situations, such as meditation, mindfulness and relaxation, can help. People may also get caught up in unhelpful emotions and thoughts. They may feel negative towards life, be fearful, or be pre-occupied with predicting and controlling the future. A therapist can help you work through unhelpful cognitions and learn skills to reduce anxiety.

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.

Stress is normal and useful. When we experience too much it is like a gas tank over-filling. This can be dangerous as even just a little stress ("spark") can trigger an anxiety attack or angry outburst. Managing stress and stress levels is very important. Remember, deep breathing... three to five 15-20 second breaths can calm and balance out body and emotion. Then, and only then, can we utilize the many other strategies available to lower stress, resolve problems and improve the relationships valuable to us.
