Anxiety

Anxiety is the leading cause of mental health distress in Canada

Although anxiety is a natural function of the human body and our Central Nervous System, when we are faced with stressors outside of our coping abilities, the symptoms of anxiety may become too much for us to bear and may be very intrusive in our lives.

At Victoria Wellness, we offer a holistic approach to anxiety, treating both the mind and body through Dialectical and Somatic therapies. We understand that anxiety symptoms are often related to suppressed emotion or untreated trauma such as grief/loss or childhood abuse.

 

Personalized Approaches

 

Distressing symptoms of anxiety are addressed primarily through group programming, as our expert Group Facilitator and Social Worker, teach clients the skills of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. Developing an understanding of how our thoughts are manageable and how they interact with our feelings and behaviours, is one-way clients better manage their symptoms.

We also integrate somatic (body) therapies, such as restorative yoga, meditation, and therapeutic walks into our work. Clients attend groups on emotional regulation and managing difficult relationships. They build the skills to successfully integrate healthy boundaries, communicate effectively, and live their lives to the fullest.

Somatic Treatments

Restorative Yoga

A restful practice that emphasizes the meditative aspects of yoga. Unifying the mind and body, restorative yoga allows you to develop the skills and abilities to self-soothe, helping us better respond to stress and rebalancing our nervous systems.

Meditation

Meditation is a mental exercise involving deep focus, relaxation and awareness. Meditating helps relieve anxiety by providing a new perspective on traumas and stressful situations. Daily practice can provide lifelong stress reduction, stronger emotional health, and may help fight addictions.

Our Individualized therapeutic assessments are designed for each residential client
