Registered Psychotherapist

Stress & anxiety are major barriers to living a full and satisfying life, and unfortunately becoming increasingly problematic in these fast-paced, uncertain times. Finding balance and relief from stressful, anxious patterns involves learning to understand thinking patterns and emotional responses, and cultivating tools to break the cycle of stress-related reactions. My therapeutic approach is holistic in nature, and involves learning to understand these negative patterns, as well as working with meditative and mindfulness techniques that promote awareness, relaxation and deeper connection with the self in order to find more balance and peace within the context of our busy lives.

If you suffer from anxiety you are very aware of your physical symptoms of jitters, tension, increased heart rate, and light-headed-ness. In your mind you tend to overestimate danger, underestimate your ability to cope and have catastrophic thoughts. Usually an event that triggered panic brings you for help. While I can provide tools that can help you learn to reduce your anxiety, reflecting on your relationship with yourself and others will help you make personal transformation. For example the fear of being alone after a long term relationship ends, can lead to panic about your future. Addressing what happened in that relationship & past relationship patterns will help you learn your needs

I can help you look at your current life patterns and support you in making small changes to help you feel more at ease.

Stress & Anxiety

Jaime Saibil, M.A.

Registered Psychotherapist & Cognitive behavioural therapist

180 Bloor street west, Toronto, ON M5S 1T6

In many cases, an integrative approach of cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT) and psychotherapy is used to help you manage stress and anxiety. Cognitive-behavioural therapy aims to help you change your emotional response and behaviour by changing your thoughts. If our thoughts happen so quickly and automatically, how can we change a stress response that is perpetuated by such challenging or negative thoughts? Using cognitive-behavioural strategies, we can slow down the thought process by creating a heightened awareness of them. As we observe them, we can make significant changes in our automatic thoughts, and subsequently, change our emotional response and the way we respond as a result.
