Anxiety and depression

We all feel sad or worried at times. Low levels of stress helpfully motivate or warn us of danger. But, continued anxiety and depression can harmfully cause unexpected and unhelpful symptoms that negatively impact our lives, including how we think, feel, and act. 

Anxiety or depression can be triggered by a specific event or stressful life experience. In some cases, people experience anxiety or depression as a result of certain thoughts patterns like believing that we are not good enough or that everything must be perfect. Symptoms of anxiety and depression include feeling nervous, sad, weak or tired, having problems sleeping, changes in appetite, having problems concentrating or enjoying daily activities. If these symptoms are affecting your daily functioning or you are not feeling yourself, consider seeking help and making self-care a priority.

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is an effective evidence-based approach used to address anxiety and depression. The main principle of CBT is that our thoughts, feelings, and behaviours work together, and the goal is to identify and change the unhelpful patterns of thinking that feed anxious and negative thoughts. I will teach you the specific CBT strategies that you need to help you identify problem behaviours and replace them with helpful responses.
