Stress & Anxiety

Paul LeBlanc, MSW, RSW

Anxiety and stress can be situational to an event, loss, disappointment, or fear. Anxiety can also be a baseline hypervigilent state, with a relapsing, remitting quality. It is always parasitic, unpleasant and toxic to those whom it infects. It is also hard on our elationships. Therapy with me seeks to achieve remission or soften the anxiety and then we will focus on preventing relapse. I see anxiety as biological, situational and interpersonal. Therapy will explore precipitating stressors, contributory biological factors, and personal factors and in a Cognitive and narrative model we explore new ways to interact with a goal of remission or at least softenning the distress.

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.

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!

Stress management starts with identifying sources of stress. Your true sources of stress aren’t always obvious, and it’s all too easy to overlook your own stress-inducing thoughts, feelings, and behaviours. Together we look at your thought patterns that may keep you stuck in your stress cycle. Anxiety is a natural bodily response to a stressful or dangerous situation. Your body reacts and you experience a racing heart, sweaty palms and shortness of breath. For some people this reaction is more intense and can last hours. Anxiety can be overwhelming and take control of your life. Anxiety may coexist with depression. Call today at 613 287 3799 to learn how you can take control of your stress.

Michelle Bentley, MA, RP, RMFT

Registered Psychotherapist; Individual and Marriage & Family Therapist

2948 Baseline Rd #206, Ottawa, ON K2H 8T5

Experiencing anxiety can vary from an unfocused sense of concern or worry to performance fears affecting school or work, panic attacks, stress, hypervigilance from trauma, or phobias. Physical and psychological symptoms generally feel out of control and are frustrating and fear-inducing, and can lead people to question themselves and their capabilities as well as limiting their enjoyment of life. I am experienced and specialized in supporting individuals, children and families to find their own strengths to use in regaining control of their life from the influence of anxiety, using a combination of psychotherapy and counselling approaches to fit each unique situation.

Clinical Social Worker and RMFT

There’s a lot you can do to manage your stress, but the first thing you need is a break between stressors to give your parasympathetic nervous system a chance to restore your equilibrium. A hot bath or a relaxing book is good or Something much more powerful is necessary: deep relaxation. Deep relaxation is a practice that requires 15 minutes of your time each day. During that 15-minute period, your total concentration is focused on relaxing your body and mind to achieve a state of deep calm. This exercise releases endorphins (the body’s natural opiates), creating an emotional high. Deep relaxation practiced daily strengthens your immune system and reduces your risk of stress-related disea....
