My cross-training in counselling, conflict resolution, mediation and hypnotherapy can be very empowering for clients who come to my practice suffering from anxiety and stress. Unfortunately most people attempt to reduce their stress by choosing a form of pleasure that only leads them into more stress. I remind my clients that they can choose to utilize stress reducing techniques rather than stress increasing choices. Another common symptom is anxiety about becoming anxious again. I teach clients that if they focus on the present moment that this anxiety can be markedly reduced. I teach clients the techniques of getting a good sleep....the most important stress reducing factor.

Anxiety and stress are very common symptoms in our society. We all seem to have busy minds and no time to destress. My approach to treating anxiety and stress has proven to be very efficient as I help individuals identify the root cause of their condition and the tools to help the mind become at ease. My specialty is in mindfulness and meditation, two powerful tools that bring a new perspective to anyone's life.

Anxiety looks and feels different for everyone. Whether you are struggling with panic attacks, obsessive compulsive disorder, phobias or social anxiety, therapy can help you both learn to recognize your “triggers” and get to root cause of the anxiety. Working with a trusted therapist can allow you to talk about your fears and break free from them. Imagine living without your anxiety~ freedom.

At Elim we use a Cognitive Behaviour Therapy approach for treating anxiety and depression. This model of therapy works on indirectly changing a person's feeling by changing their negative thoughts and maladaptive behaviours. As clients learn to identify and change their thoughts and behavior they report feeling less anxious and better able to deal with the stresses of life.

Residential Addiction Program

In K0A 1K0 - Nearby to Thurso.

Anxiety disorders commonly coexist with addiction tendencies. Anxiety can severely inhibit a person's life, causing them to feel an irrational amount of panic, fear and other negative emotions in any given circumstance. Severe anxiety may influence a person to avoid leaving their house, or to become paralyzed in situations they interpret as stressful. Many people who struggle with anxiety will try to self medicate with alcohol or drugs, which ultimately makes their symptoms worse. A dual diagnosis of addiction and anxiety requires special treatment considerations; the kind that Valiant Recovery provides.

Certified Clinical Counsellor

Sometimes following the simple advice "Just be yourself" feels impossible; experiences of anxiety, trauma, depression, and shame can keep us from being able to connect with ourselves, let alone connect in the way we want with others. I meet you with compassion and non-judgment; I will provide a safe space to explore and overcome what is holding you back. It is my joy to help you become comfortable in your own skin and thriving in the life you deserve using evidence-based strategies.

When dealing with anxiety and stress, I believe in helping a client get to the root of this issue and change what is going on here, in order to effect a more permanent long-term shift in his or her anxiety and stress level. This is different than the typical strategies taught by others, e.g., relaxation and breathing exercises, "happy jars," which tend to be temporary short-term fixes, only to have the anxiety and stress resurface a little while later.
