Anxiety

"Take it one step at a time, breathe, and do the next best thing."  ~ Anonymous

Each person's experience of anxiety is unique. Symptoms of anxiety can include but are not limited to:

  • Constant worry about the past and future

  • Rushing thoughts and fears

  • Rapid heartbeat

  • Panic Attacks (having difficulty breathing)

  • Dissociation (feeling out of body or "un-real")

  • Difficulty sleeping

  • Intense feeling of overwhelm

  • An experience of feeling frozen

  • Unable to leave the house, socialize,

       or complete every-day tasks

How I Can Help:

  • Investigate possible sources of their mental health concerns, including biological, psychological, environmental, situational, spiritual, or a combination of the aforementioned

  • Integrate evidence-based research with creative and personalized counselling approaches to forge a unique plan to overcoming and/or managing anxiety

  • Recognize, evaluate, and reframe unhelpful thinking patterns

  • Learn grounding exercises to bring you into the present moment opposed to worrying about the past and future

  • Manage panic attacks in a way that decreases their intensity, duration, and frequency

  • Ground yourself in your body when you start to feel like you are dissociating

  • Improve sleep using practical techniques

  • Move forward by overcoming fears at a healthy and safe pace based on your unique needs
