There are at least four components to reducing anxiety. The first is to learn self-soothing techniques. the second is to become aware of the thoughts and images which are making you anxious and to deliberately choose other thoughts and images. The third is to discover and face what you are most afraid of. Sometimes, when there has been trauma, this fear is something that has already happened and from which you have not recovered. Often it is something out of your control, a fact of life, like death! We need to make peace with these, accept their reality and make the best of what we have. I have some excellent tools from hypnosis and a field of study called NLP to speed your progress.

Anxiety and stress is a major concern for many in today's society. Being overwhelmed with so much to do and check while believing there are not enough resources can place anyone in a stressful position. Panic attacks may being while avoidance sets in. I help people understand what is going on and what can be done and what cannot be done. I also help client utilize resources they may not be aware of to help with the anxiety. Lastly, many anxieties come from faulty thinking or traumatic events we learned and experienced in the past. Identifying these and working thorough them can help reduce the level anxiety.

As we all know stress is from anything in life and left undone, it will start bringing levels of anxiety. If we allow anxiety to grow unchecked it will start overwhelming us and can lead to a life "out of control". Here is one of my principles called "margins". A "margin" is when we give adequate space for the fluctuations of life. If you have put together a serious budget, it needs to have some room for the unexpected. When our "margins" are packed without room to adjust, we are headed for trouble. As we build "margins" with adequate space, we start experiencing rest, hope and joy. For we are not overwhelmed. One cannot have a "crises" management attitude. There is real hope.

A lot of people experience anxiety when they feel stressed out. In fact, stress and anxiety go hand by hand. Hence, learning to deal with stress can also help you to manage anxiety in a better way. Anxiety is not really a bad thing as anxiety can motivate us to do things better, but anxiety can become a problem when it gets too much. Hence, how to keep “good” anxiety and get rid of “bad anxiety” and this is something that we can work on together.

Most people experience normal worry and anxiety from time to time; however, when this anxiety begins to disturb a person's overall functioning, it may be time to seek outside help. Anxiety is a very common disorder and one that can be effectively treated with therapy. People are often able to identify the emotions evoked with anxiety (such as fear or panic), but they are less often able to identify the thoughts involved that lead to this emotion. I work with clients to increase their coping strategies and pay better attention to and identify their thoughts that lead to uncomfortable emotions, and then work to stop or change these negative thoughts to healthier and more productive thoughts.

Anxiety and stress seem to be everyone's typical standard way of life these days...but that doesn't make them any easier to deal with. Though they can certainly be linked, stress and anxiety can be very different, including the way they are treated. From everyday issues to healing from past traumas and losses, anxiety can steal your quality of life. The good news is that anxiety is one area that is particularly receptive to therapy and counseling - much can change in a short period of time with the right intervention and help.

Few things are as terrifying as Panic Attacks, which hit fast & hard, and in which you may have the harrowing belief that you are actually 'dying.' Other forms of Anxiety & Stress may linger over time, and be either all-consuming or subtle. They may cause: strained or depleted resources; sapped or jacked-up energy; and mounting senses of pressures or 'overwhelm.' My job is to help you 'transform' your particular (mental, emotional & physical) Anxiety & Stress experiences. I want to help you build resources that will work for you to deal with the kinds of difficulties & discomforts you face, in order to find your way through the 'challenges' to the 'contentment' that lies on the other side.

As a normal reaction to stress, mild anxiety is sometimes helpful: you study for a test, or drive within the speed limit. But excessive anxiety and stress make everyday activities much more difficult – they choke the joy out of life. Perhaps you worry way too much about normal things, find it hard to concentrate, or often experience an impending sense of doom or dread. Maybe you’re afraid of having panic attacks you can’t control. Perhaps you avoid social activities because you fear embarrassment or humiliation. Change is possible! With counseling, you can learn to soothe your anxious body, tame your anxious mind, and change your anxious behavior. Please contact me for more info.

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 go hand in hand. Anxiety is a customary reaction to a stressful situation. But, in some cases it becomes excessive and can cause sufferers to dread everyday situations. Stress is a reality for all of us. But, it does not have to overwhelm us. Some people may have a genetic predisposition to anxiety. Early traumatic experiences can also reset the body's normal fear-processing system so that it is hyper-reactive to stress. The goal would be to; rid the exaggerated worries and negative outcomes in unknown situations. I will counsel you on the many ways to reduce the amount of stress in your life, along with techniques to adjust your reaction to those factors.

Our brains are wired to be on the lookout for danger, for what “could go wrong” in any given situation, and this has given us a survival advantage as a species. Often, though, this survival advantage works against us. When our internal alarm systems go off too often, we live our lives in constant fear and find it difficult to relax, trust, and enjoy the moment. Cognitive behavioral therapy, guided visualizations, and mindfulness techniques can help you turn the “alarm” off, relax, and be present to the moment. This not only makes your life more enjoyable, it improves your health, as has been shown in numerous studies on the impact of stress on the body.

Insight Into Action Therapy

In the fast-paced Northern Virginia area, high levels of stress and anxiety are common. I create an understanding, compassionate therapeutic environment. My approach is to address both anxious thinking and the body’s stress response. You will learn practical skills to help adjust the thought patterns that support anxiety. Because anxiety is also physical I use relaxation and mindfulness techniques to achieve a calmer, more focused state by slowing down racing thoughts. With these skills, we examine all areas of life, including any outside factors that contribute to stress. I never take a “one-size-fits-all” approach to my work. Therapy is a collaborative process, the best results coming from honoring the uniqueness of each person.

Anxiety and stress steal our time, comfort, confidence, and energy. Whether you are a worrier (ruminating over a problem or something you said/did during the day), or someone who breaks out into a cold sweat thinking about a presentation, getting on a plane, or being exposed to COVID, therapy can help. I use cognitive therapies, behavior modification, compassion, and mindfulness to work with a variety of anxiety symptoms and disorders. I'm also interested in the origin of the anxiety and what maintains it. If you are interested in a pure behavioral approach, I am not the therapist for you. I work to help you understand yourself and lower the baseline level of anxiety in your life.
