In relational psychotherapy, we spend a lot of time on relational feelings. They turn up in your daily relationships with your family, friends, and co-workers. We'll look at what happens in those interactions that leaves you feeling badly about yourself and make you feel anxious or stressful. You might begin to notice patterns there that make you think of earlier relationships in your life. We will talk about how those relationships told you who you are, what you're worth, and what you can get from life.

Do you feel tense and worry about things that are not likely to happen? Does your worry prevent you from enjoying life? Are you unable to relax because your mind is always racing? If you answered 'yes' to any of these questions, and you have been feeling this way for several weeks, you may have an anxiety disorder. In our sessions, I will give you tools for changing your thinking patterns, and gain control over your unwanted thoughts.

Tressa Porter, M.A.

Therapist and Consultant

Anywhere, anytime! Access help when you need it! Therapy that fits your life and joins you on your journey.
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.

Philip Kolba, MA

Psychotherapist

Looking for a change? Online counseling is convenient, effective, efficient, and confidential.
Everyone experiences anxiety at some point, but for some the anxiety is so frequent or intense that it interferes with their lives or even triggers panic attacks. I use Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) to help my clients get a sense of control over their own anxiety. We collaborate to learn skills to reduce the frequency or intensity of the anxious feelings, to tolerate the anxiety when it does occur so they can still function through it, and to practice habits that reduce stress and improve general mental health.

Feeling anxious? or stressed? or overwhelmed? The situation may seem to be so difficult, it maybe the stress at school, or the pressure at work, or the unfairness how others have treated you at work. But, you need the job, and have the anxiety going to work everyday. You can empower yourself by learning coping strategies and use them to handle your feelings and your automatic thoughts.

We all get worries and feel stressful at times. However, if your worries get in the way for you to engage in social activities or participate in particular events or go to specific places, you may experience some anxiety. Also, if your worries, fear or stress affect your sleep, appetite, school/work performance, and relationships, you will need to get counselling to help support you to de-stress.

Psychotherapist

Within Driving Distance of Markham, ON

Anxiety and stress is a common issue that I deal with in my sessions, it seems like we breed this issue. I teach my clients not to fear their emotions but rather to use them in the way they where intended. Anxiety typically comes up when we have an item which needs to be activated, when the emotion is honored the need for it will dissipate.

I believe that it is important for individuals to have a good understanding of the many different types of factors that can play an important role in causing stress and anxiety. With this understanding, individuals are then appropriately empowered to use the most effective and comprehensive techniques to make the changes they want to make in their lives. They are then supported to develop a balanced maintenance plan.

Markham, ON L3P 2T2

Anxiety and stress can be treated using a variety of techniques that look towards changing situations, thought patters, and behaviours that work to reduce both percieved and acutal stress/anxiety levels. Psychoeducation allows the client to obtain both the knowledge and skills that can be used to better manage stressors as they arise. As well, simply taking the time to vent your worries and concerns to an unbiased party can greatly help to immediatley reduce stress while allowing you to see the situation from a more realistic perspective.

Stress & Anxiety

Todd Hayen, PhD, RP

Registered Psychotherapist

Within Driving Distance of Markham, ON

It is very difficult to function in our society without at times feeling totally overwhelmed by anxiety and stress. For many thousands, if not millions, of years, stress and anxiety came in the form of fears surrounding attacks from wild animals, not finding enough berries to fill the basket for the day, ghosts and evil spirits that may be lurking in the dark woods, or violent attacks from neighboring tribes. We do still have similar fears, but they are typically far removed from our clear and always present ability to address them. Our concern about enough food on the table is more complex now than not finding enough berries. We must develop new tools to cope with our more complex lives.

John Schurmann, B.A. Psych, B.S.W. (Hon), M.S.W.

Social Worker, Psychotherapist, ADD Specialist, Life Coach

199 Snowdon Cir., Markham, ON L3P 7S7

Stress and anxiety are the biggest preventable causes of unhappiness and illness. They poison your relationships, self-esteem, health, and happiness. The goals in helping you manage your stress/anxiety are to understand what your personal reaction to anxiety-provoking situations are, identify what your related concerns are, and learn to "let go" of anxiety. I will help you become more aware of the internal self-talk and how your thoughts affect your feelings. Thoughts affect feelings - feelings affect actions.
