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 my approach, I 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.

213 Byron Street South, Whitby, Ontario L1N 4P7 | 9056658150

My approach to treatment of anxiety and stress is largely based on cognitive-behavioural interventions. Identifying and challenging unhelpful thinking patterns and negative core beliefs forms the basis of anxiety treatment, from the perspective that thoughts influence our feelings, which then influence our behaviours and actions. As such, by changing how clients think about a situation empowers them to gain confidence in their abilities and take control of their lives.

Life challenges sometimes test our capacity to deal with stress. We all have limits on how much stress we can cope with. Anxiety is a normal reaction that occurs when our stress threshold or ability to cope is exceeded by abnormal amounts of stress. Eliminate your anxiety by developing the insight and tools to increase your stress resiliency.

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. Email or contact us at www.jeffpacker.com for more helpful tips.

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 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.
