Anxiety Doesn’t Need to Run Your Life
Constant worry, worst-case scenario thinking, unable to communicate feelings and needs, digestive issues, troubles sleeping and panic attacks are just some of the signs that you are living with anxiety.When left unmanaged anxiety can start to limit the way you live your life. It can prevent you from trying new things, meeting new people and leave you in an underlying physical state of fear. When providing mental health counselling support to individuals with anxiety I take a holistic- mind/body approach.
As a Certified Clinical Counsellor (CCC) with the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association, I hold a master’s degree in Education Counselling and have formal training in Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) for adults and teens and Satir Transformational Systemic Family therapy.
My work within the community includes serving as a clinical counsellor, yoga instructor workshop facilitator, community development advocate, and musician.
Working as a counsellor, my role is to support my clients on their journeys with a range of tools to support emotional healing.
Anxiety disorders reportedly affect more than 3 million Canadians aged 18 years or older and include generalised anxiety disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, panic disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, separation anxiety and social anxiety disorder.
While symptoms of each disorder range, if you are constantly worrying about the worst-case scenario, are unable to communicate feelings and needs, have digestive issues, have trouble sleeping and suffer from panic attacks, these are just some signs that you are living with anxiety. Symptoms usually persist for 6 months or longer and, left untreated or unmanaged, anxiety and all its forms can take a toll on how you live your life. Living with an anxiety disorder is exhausting, impacting day-to-day activities and personal relationships.
Although there is no one specific thing that causes anxiety disorders, genetics, biological and environmental factors are the condition’s leading causes.
