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 and Stress are a normal part of life- in fact, I view them as vital components. Anxiety is energy, and if used correctly, can help propel you forward.

I will teach you techniques to overcome feelings of extreme anxiety, and how to maximize the energy you feel from your anxiety.

Successfully treating anxiety and stress is often illusive. Don't forget - stress and anxiety are not the same thing - kind of like thunder and lightening not being the same thing. It is possible to feel stress without feeling anxious. But, when anxiety flares up, stress is always waiting in the wings. We know that anxiety is a fear-based emotion. Genetics gone awry is to blame. Getting relief from stress is often easier than getting relief from anxiety. Stress can be managed to some extent, but anxiety is innate. We are born with it. Not great news I'm afraid, but there are therapies that can help overly-anxious people find relief. Medication is often the treatment of choice.

We all have some level of stress & anxiety that is often experienced as fear & worry. For some, however, the anxiety can become overwhelming. This may involve a specific stressor or an increase in life stressors, a phobia, generalized anxiety or even panic symptoms. It is important to identify what might be triggering the anxiety as well as any predisposing causes. I work with individuals to explore the roots of negative thoughts & beliefs & then begin the process of altering them. I also assist in sorting through ineffective coping strategies & replacing them with new & more helpful strategies. This process helps provide relief by addressing both the anxiety symptoms & the underlying cause.

WalkinTalkinTherapy can be a crucial component in the fight against anxiety and stress. Anxiety is a feeling of fear, unease, and worry. The source of these symptoms is not always known. Stress can come from any event or thought that makes you feel frustrated, angry, or nervous. You may have a harder time focusing, feel tired most of the time, or lose your temper more often. Stress may also cause sexual problems. It can also cause problems with falling or staying asleep and nightmares. While scientists have long known that exercise can temporarily boost serotonin levels and improve mood, the latest research shows it can have a deeper and more lasting effect when combined with talk therapy.

Anxiety is characterized by a state of fear. That fear might be a fear of judgement from others or fear that you will "lose control" in a particular situation or a fear that "something bad" will happen if you don't do X. When people feel anxious, the fight/flight/freeze response is activated in the brain. This is a primal instinct that served us well as cave people, but does not work in the modern world. Anxiety is crippling. When people feel anxious their brains are on alert 24/7/365. I teach clients how to manage anxiety so that the anxiety does not control you.

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.

Licensed Psychologist

In 19102 - Nearby to Darby.

I will show you how you make yourself anxious about the things you find threatening and challenging. Anxiety and stress are largely self-created by the beliefs we tacitly hold about adversity or potential adversity. I will show you your self-defeating beliefs and teach you how to think so you feel sensible concern and do what you can do to avoid danger and threats. I will show you how to philosophically accept what cannot be avoided and thereby minimize the stress you feel about what cannot be changed or avoided. Using the power of your own ability to think in a self-helping way I will help you to change your feelings of anxiety.

Marriage and Family Therapist, Yoga Instructor

In 19102 - Nearby to Darby.

When we feel a loss of control, it can be scary and disabling. In my practice, I incorporate traditional talk therapy with mindfulness based therapy and yoga practices. Yoga and meditative exercises can help a person regain a sense of control over their thoughts, emotions, and physical body. Being centered within can help significantly reduce anxiety and symptoms created by stress. Take some time for self care and relaxation. I can help you feel more in control of your daily life, rather than feeling as though anxiety has taken control over you.

Anxiety and stress coping deficits can be exausting and cause great distress in people's lives. Additionally, what most people typically do to cope with such anxiety (avoidance techniques) can often lead to further anxiety and greater overall suffering. Utilizing the techniques shown to be effective in the CBT literature, we can work together to move through the anxiety issues and get back to a world that is bigger, more meaningful, and much more peaceful.

Anxiety can rob you of the ability to be at peace and experience joy. It interferes with relationships and your ability to focus. I will help you interrupt those racing thoughts or worries and to deal with them in a calm and structured way so that you are no longer at their mercy. We can also work to uncover the roots of stress or anxiety so that you have insight into what started those feelings and what may be triggering them. When you can understand yourself, you can begin to take care of yourself and control those feelings in new ways. Call me to discuss what kind of anxiety you struggle with and we will talk about what kind of help you would like.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, Certified EMDR Therapist

In 18936 - Nearby to Darby.

I see this as the "common cold" of mental health issues that every client struggles with on some level. I help clients look at possible past and current factors that may be creating or maintaining the stress and anxiety. If the anxiety/stress is coming from past or current traumatic experiences, EMDR therapy helps clients re-process them to come to a more adaptive view that aids healing. I teach relaxation, deep breathing, and meditation practices to be used at home to decrease the impact of stress and anxiety on a client's life. Finally, I help clients identify and rid themselves of unhealthy relationships that may be creating or maintaining the anxiety.

Anxiety can be paralyzing and our thoughts and fears can feel like they are running the show, but it doesn't have to be that way. With coping skills and a sense of security, managing anxious thoughts is possible. With techniques such as thought stopping and reframing, we can begin to argue and win the battle against anxiety. With support and a deeper understanding anxiety can be successfully managed.

Licensed Professional Counselor, Accredited Clinical Supervisor

In 19087 - Nearby to Darby.

We experience anxiety in many ways: excessive worry about future events, catastrophic thoughts, insomnia, restlessness, pounding heart, sweating, avoidance of specific things. While we cannot avoid stress, our ways of coping with stressful situations affect our mental, physical and spiritual health. In a safe, empathetic environment, I help clients understand how thoughts, behaviors, environmental changes/life situations, moods and physical reactions affect anxiety level. Together, we develop effective coping strategies to reduce anxiety, regain a sense of empowerment and a return to the calm and balanced life we deserve.
