Stress & Anxiety

Tamara Knott, BA, BComm, MA, RCC

Registered Clinical Counsellor

Within Driving Distance of Vancouver, BC

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 and anxiety are part of life and can be positive forces that motivate and excite us. Yet the demands of work, family and other relationships can overwhelm our normal capacity to cope. I work with clients to create a supportive place to explore and clarify key issues that contribute to current stress and fear, while coaching through strategies to actively manage symptoms. The goal is to promote self-awareness, develop confidence in strategies to manage the overwhelming feelings, and feel more resilient.

Stress and anxiety are natural – until they interfere with your life. Avoiding things that increase your anxiety will not solve the underlying issues causing you distress nor will it stop your stress and anxiety. And, if you don’t resolve the root cause of your anxiety, it will resurface in other areas of your life. Don’t suffer needlessly. By addressing your anxiety now you can experience the life you want and deserve.

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.

What is stressful to one person is not necessarily stressful to another. Stress can arise from your thoughts about any situation. Anxiety is a feeling of fear or apprehension. When the source of your anxiety is unknown, it can be heightened. I can help you examine how you experience anxiety and this can lessen or eliminate your symptoms. You can learn to live with stressful situations with less anxiety and you can begin to create a life that has less stress in it.. Together we can create positive change in your life.

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

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).
