The treatment of anxiety and stress first begins with the management of the symptoms bringing you in for treatment. Without having these symptoms under control, it is difficult for individuals to begin to examine the reasons behind the anxiety without provoking more anxiety. Once these symptoms are addressed, we will start to examine the life situations you are in and the relationships, stories, family roles and events that may be the roots of the stress and subsequent anxiety. With some time, consistency, openness and commitment to the process, individuals will find anxiety more manageable and the enjoyment of every day returned.

Anxiety is rough- you likely know this. You might think "why is this happening to me? Why does this phase me like it does? This isn't anything big." You also may be under intense stress and perhaps even intensely traumatic situations and just now starting to feel the impact. I offer helpful practical tools to deal with anxiety in how you think and how you breath. But I don't stop there as those things are often un-effective, as you may have already found, if not partnered with a deep understanding of how to work with, on an emotional level, messy feelings.

Our approach to anxiety is to first identify patterns in your family of origin. Most clients who struggle with ongoing anxiety are often care takers of their families. Coming to grips with where these do good patterns may actually not be so good can help you as a client lesson your anxiety. Stress is typically more of how a person holds every day anxiety. These forms of anxiety can often be relieved by becoming more familiar with identifying and expressing your feelings in a safe environment.

Stress can manifest itself in different ways, many of which are harmful to your mind and body. Stress increases blood pressure, causes sleeplessness, and can reduce your ability to function in daily life. If you’re experiencing unmanageable anxiety and stress, it’s important to seek help. Counseling can help you identify your stressors, while offering healthy ways to cope. I’ve helped people like you who suffer from anxiety and stress by providing them with a safe place to unload their troubles while finding practical solutions.

Anxiety and stress are a normal part of life and can come from both positive and negative aspects of life. Changing, moving away from, or coping with negativity is one aspect of anxiety and stress management. But also learning to accept the reality that anxiety and stress are a part of even in positive things, like intimate relationships or a fulfilling career, is equally important. Health psychology is about reducing "bad" and embracing "good" stress. The better friends you are with stress, the less damaging it is to your mental and physical health. Curiosity about and gratitude for your stress responses are crucial to effectively managing them.

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.

In 98121 - Nearby to Issaquah.

There are many different types of anxiety and stress. You may be having an adverse reaction to a specific incident or you may be coming to me with a lifelong struggle around generalized anxiety. I work with many clients who have experienced work life stress and trauma and help them make sense of their situations so they can make informed decisions around a course of action. I help many clients uncover lifelong anxiety that has become so normalized that it may not register as anxiety. Ways of coping with anxiety may be also be causing problems. The goal would be to discover better tools to deal with both the underlying issue and the problems that outdated coping skills may be causing.

In today's fast-moving world it's hard not to be stressed out. It can be even harder to determine if the stress and anxiety is "normal" or should be treated. If it's causing you impairments in your daily life, or if you're stressing about your stress, it's worth talking about in therapy. I help client identify what their stress/anxiety looks like and how to better manage it. Stress doesn't have to be bad, in fact it can be channeled in ways that will make you more a more productive person and help you reach your goals... with the added bonus feeling less stressed and more relaxed.
