I Highly Recommend Stacey As An Anxiety Counsellor

I am very grateful to the anxiety centre website and the excellent counseling sessions with Stacey. I was under a lot of stress from an overload of business trips, was experiencing anxiety and feeling overwhelmed when I first started working with him. I was under pressure to bring in more work and I let the pressure build up in me and actually took on more business assignments than was healthy. I did not have the work-life balance I so treasure.

I had never had any counseling before, so I cannot compare the sessions with Stacey with any other sessions. However, right from the very start I felt an immediate sense of trust being built. I could feel that he genuinely wanted to help me. He is very gifted as a counselor and a coach. He helps you to see and really understand things more clearly and deeply. He also gives you practical tools to work with.

It was especially comforting to work with someone who really understands anxiety and its symptoms and takes the time to help you understand them and how not to fear them. I learned how to understand the symptoms better. Afterwards they started decreasing more and more. I moved from a state of "fight or flight" to a state of "rest and recuperation". I still have a lot of work, but it is better paced now because I also make a conscious effort to pace it better.

I learned to slow down again and not feel I had to carry the burden alone of finding funding opportunities at work. I understand that it is a team project to be shared by all team members.

I would recommend Stacey very highly. He walks with you, empowers you and helps you to help yourself thrive.

Thank you again, Stacey. I really valued our time together.

The combination of good self-help information and working with an experienced anxiety disorder therapist, coach, or counselor is the most effective way to address anxiety and its many symptoms. Until the core causes of anxiety are addressed - we call these core causes the underlying factors of anxiety - a struggle with anxiety unwellness can return again and again. Dealing with the underlying factors of anxiety is the best way to address problematic anxiety.
