Overcoming Stress & Anxiety
Stress is often triggered by a situation that makes a person feel frustrated or nervous. Anxiety is the experience of consistent underlying fear, worry and unease that can take us away from fully experiencing the present moment and our overall enjoyment of life. The mind and body can take on certain ‘anxiety’ patterns that have their roots in those life experiences where we felt threatened and unsafe. Being exposed to these situations, especially for prolonged periods of time, can wire our bodies and mind to experience anxiety and stress throughout our lives.
Psychotherapy can help you break free from these patterns. In our sessions together we will explore the root causes of stress and anxiety, and develop a treatment plan that empowers you to take control of your life situation. You will learn valuable skills for calming the mind and body, and managing stress and anxiety. Psychotherapy can assist you in developing the necessary tools and resources to create healthy psychological life patterns.
Various anxiety related issues are addressed in psychotherapy including panic attacks, obsessive-compulsive disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, generalized anxiety disorder and phobias.
Psychotherapy can help people experiencing stress and anxiety:
- Discover and understand the root causes of anxiety and stress.
- Release anxiety, tension and stress within the body and mind using a holistic psychotherapeutic framework.
- Learn coping skills and relaxation techniques to maintain calm and inner-balance. Use these skills to counteract daily stress, anxiety and panic.
- Identify and transform thoughts and feeling that create stress and anxiety. Learn to enjoy the present moment with ease, flow and trust by internalizing positive and empowering thoughts and emotions.
