Stress & Anxiety

Jennifer Scott, RCC, RSW, BC-DMT

Registered Clinical Counsellor, Registered Social Worker

Within Driving Distance of Vancouver, BC

Anxiety, panic, and stress often show up as tension or unpleasant physical sensations in the body as fear and other emotions are held back. Trauma, relationship problems, losses, and attachment issues are often the hidden source of emotional pain. To resolve anxiety and panic, I use a mind-body approach which integrates cognitive, emotional, and body sensing techniques to get curious about and resolve the true underlying issues.

Stress & Anxiety

Suzanne Watts, MA, RCC

Registered Clinical Counsellor

You may feel that anxiety and stress are greatly diminishing your capacity to enjoy, or even function in, everyday life. By having your body's stress system constantly activated, you are feeling exhausted and overwhelmed. Counselling can help you learn skills for physiological regulation, dealing with sensitive emotions, and changing unhelpful thought patterns. Many of my clients struggle with daily anxiety and stress, and we work together to develop strategies for healthy coping and stress reduction. I have a special interest in working with trauma survivors, many of whom experience post-traumatic stress (or PTSD) and with highly sensitive persons (HSPs).

Anxiety and stress is the body’s natural response to danger, an automatic alarm that goes off when we feel threatened. But when anxiety is constant or overwhelming, when it interferes with your relationships and activities—that’s when you’ve crossed the line from normal anxiety into the territory of anxiety disorders. As a product of the body’s fight-or-flight response, anxiety involves a wide range of physical symptoms. Many people experiencing anxiety benefit from supportive counselling or couples or family therapy. However, experts agree that the most effective form of treatment for the is cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT).

Stress & Anxiety

Joseph Eliezer, MTC, MPCC-S, RCS

Master Practitioner of Clinical Counselling

#28 -1089 West Broadway, Vancouver, BC V6H 1E5

According to Dr. Carl Jung, the amount of anxiety you experience is equivalent to the degree of trauma you’ve endured, but haven’t processed. Anxiety is one way the unconscious mind gets our attention, and it is never comfortable or easy. In therapy, we will explore the roots of your anxiety and work to transform them from unconscious impulses into mindful awareness. People who recover from anxiety and stress experience an increased ability to manage stress, an expanded sense of internal and emotional freedom, a greater sense of authenticity and inner cohesion, improved self-confidence, deeper and more fulfilling relationships with self and others.

Stress & Anxiety

Alexia Brown, M.Ed, R.C.C

Registered Clinical Counsellor

West 16th Ave and MacDonald, Vancouver, BC V6K 4M1

We are far more primitive in our reactions than we like to think, and fear, stress, or anxiety, can go from an adaptive warning to a very non adaptive over reaction, arresting our ability to function. I have worked extensively in this area, in giving workshops and as a trainer for other counsellors, focusing first on understanding the body's reaction and then developing skills to over-ride the anxiety response. Using a mindfulness approach, staying connected with our needs, and focusing on resiliency, anxiety can be tamed.

Stress & Anxiety

Tiffani Van Buckley, MA, RCC

Registered Clinical Counsellor

3223 Main Street, Vancouver, BC V5V 3M6

Feelings of anxiety can develop slowly and insidiously. The mind becomes busy with thoughts, especially thoughts about the future, over which one has very little control. The mind is so powerful it convinces the body that the fears (anxieties) are real and true, resulting in symptoms of elevated heart rate, shaking, blurry vision, tension and difficulty breathing. All of this, if not addressed, becomes a terrifying and helpless cycle. Tiffani provides education about anxiety, as well as easy, effective coping strategies to quickly reduce feelings of anxiety and experience a new way of being that is capable, calm and free.

Stress & Anxiety

Erica Collyer Beauchamp, MEd RCC

Registered Clinical Counsellor

970 Burrard Street, Vancouver, BC V6Z 2R4

I help clients dealing with anxiety and stress by using CBT, DBT, and Mindfulness based approaches. I help clients develop awareness and insight around the way they think to then create change in their thinking. Thoughts, Behaviours, and Emotions are all interconnected and drive each person's experience of an event and of themselves. By changing one, we change the other two. I help clients do this while pairing their thoughts with mindfulness based strategies to soothe their stress and anxiety.

Stress & Anxiety

Keisei Anzai, MA, RCAT, BCATR

Registered Art Therapist

659-A Moberly Road, Vancouver, BC V5Z 4B2

A lot of times, anxiety and stress have to do with client's make-up of his/her personality acquired from a young age. A first directive will be given to client to draw a self boundary art to check on his self identity; then explore back to his original family to find any solid formation of a bond. Depending on the given art, exploration of the art can take the client back and forth between now and then until a cause can be found.
