Stress & Anxiety

Are you finding it difficult to mange stress? Stress is common and a part of everyday life's response to challenging events or situations.  It could be school deadlines, pressure from parents expectations,  difficult decisions, family conflict or maybe you are moving.   Or maybe you are experiencing anxiety -  are you feeling worried all the time, in a state of constant dread and fear , but there is no  challenging event or situation looming over you?  

We will work together to find out the root of where the stress or anxiety is coming from. I will help you become aware of thoughts, feelings and behaviours that are presenting when you are stressed or feeling anxious.  We will go through ways to manage stressful situations and change the way we respond to them. You will then be able to know how to handle anxiety and stress when it pops up.  We will practice some mindfulness techniques and prepare some clear strategies to make sure stress and anxiety does not rule your life. 

Relationships & Friendships

Relationships can be confusing and stressful.  You might find that you want to talk about it with someone who is completely outside of your circle of friends and family since the issues are so private and personal. I can help you with effective communication techniques, process a breakup, work through conflict and help you strengthen a relationship. Through this process you will also learn more about yourself, your values and gain insight into what you value in a romantic partner and other friendships. 

Confidence & Self Image 

Do you hesitate to do things because of what others might think or have thoughts about yourself that you continually want to change? If so, you my have some issues with self image or lack some confidence. Our self image is essentially how we see ourselves.  The self - image we have of ourselves determines what kind of person we think we are and what we believe others think about us.  This all boils down to how much we believe in ourselves and our self worth. 

When we work together, we will explore your thoughts and feelings about yourself.  We will challenge those critical thoughts that might be holding you back from your confident self.  I will help you improve your self image and help you to treat yourself with more compassion and kindness.
