Marriage & Family & Individual Psychotherapist

611 - 267 O'Connor Street, Ottawa, ON K2P 1V3

When our sense of self is threatened we respond by experiencing anxiety. In verbalizing our anxiety we begin to see our reality with more clarity. We consider the beliefs and events on which we base our reality and examine our protective strategies and the consequences of our choices. We learn to expand our reality so as to include various helpful factors that we earlier omitted and that will better allow us to manage our stress and anxiety.

Learning how to manage anxiety & deal with the irrational thoughts or distressing behaviours associated with anxiety is an essential first step to recovery. Processing the deeper emotions & meanings associated with past & present day difficult life situations is also important to build a more secure, resilient self that is capable of facing the challenges of everyday life without becoming overwhelmed.

Richard Merrill Haney, M.Ed., Ph.D. (Counselling Therapy)

Couple Counselling/Coaching and Family Mediation Specialist

301 Bank St. (at Somerset St.) In Centretown, Ottawa, ON K2P 1X7

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.

Reg. Marriage and Family Therapist, Can. Cert. Counsellor, Registered Psychotherapist

Within Driving Distance of Ottawa, ON

Anxiety and stress can be overwhelming and debilitating. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is very effective in helping people manage and overcome anxiety and stress through changing their patterns of thinking and relating to the world. Within a supportive, therapeutic context, I help clients understand the nature of their anxiety and stress, then empower them to change their feelings through a variety of cognitive behavioral techniques.

Abundant Living Counselling Group

Counsellors

Various locations in Ottawa, Ottawa, ON K2G 0G3

Anxiety and its cousins, fear and panic, have cognitive and emotional components and behavioural manifestations. Clients become skilled in recognizing this negative spiral, where negative thinking reinforces emotional dis-regulation, by challenging this unconscious mechanism with conscious and healthy replacement tools. Clients are ultimately able to live a life of conscious choice in the present.

Conny Barry, RP, M.Ed. (Counselling), CCC

Can. Cert. Counsellor and Registered Psychotherapist

Ottawa South, Alta Vista, Ottawa, ON K1H 5T7

Anxiety and Stress are both life and living challenges. They are part of the normal obstacles we face in our lifetime, be it in health, in illness, in marriage, in couple and relationship issues, in aging and with our children. The thoughts, feelings and behaviors associated with them can often overwhelm and even paralyze us when they occur. In a supportive and empathic environment I help people understand and demystify these feelings and find coping strategies so that they can overcome these crippling experiences in order to live productively again.

Stress & Anxiety

Liesel Aranyosi, Registered Professional Counsellor

Registered Psychotherapist

Lifesource Medical Centre, 2130 Robertson Rd., Ottawa, ON K2H 5Z1

Most of us talk ourselves into anxiety and stress but we can definitely talk ourselves out of it just as well. By identifying the common mental mistakes behind anxiety and stress, we begin to understand how we talk ourselves into feeling anxious and stressed out. My role as a therapist is to teach clients how to correct those mental mistakes and make replacement thoughts to help us feel the way we may want to feel. Moreover, clients will be learning the different relaxation techniques and practice the ones that work for them best. And, the best part is, clients have learned self counselling skills, that they can use for their lifetime, by the end of therapy!

124 O'Connor Street, Suite 503, Ottawa, ON K1P 5M9

Struggling with anxiety can rob your ability to function, as well as your enjoyment of life. I find the most effective approach to controlling anxiety to be a multi-dimensional approach. Often medication is very helpful, however other interventions are important to use alongside the medications. Working through your thoughts about the anxiety and how they are adding to the problem, for instance. Having taught relaxation techniques and stress management to people who suffer from chronic pain, I am also well aware of the beneficial effects of learning how to clear your mind through relaxation or meditation.
