My counsellor at Peak Resilience helped me to change my life, I feel so lucky to have met her. She has helped me realize my value as a human being. She has encouraged me to feel, and validated my emotions, no matter what they were. She made talking about the toughest things possible by being open, real and honest with me.
— H.S. Age 28
Counselling has helped me feel compassion and kindness towards myself, and to reconnect with the person I can be. My counsellor inspires me to challenge myself and to work towards my best self. I can see now that living a genuinely fulfilled life is possible, even though it may not always be easy. I am truly grateful for her knowledge, empathy and insights. Thank you so much.

About the Workshop

Anxiety disorders are the most prevalent mental health condition in Canada, affecting at least one in four Canadians at some point in their lives (Anxiety Disorders Association of Canada). Everyone experiences anxious symptoms from time to time such as nervousness, worry or fear. When these symptoms are more severe, ongoing and interfere with various levels of functioning, they become anxiety disorders warranting treatment. Various treatment models try to decrease anxiety with a whack-a- mole approach: only addressing one cause at a time. The Anxiety Explained Program seeks to address all causes of anxiety in the four dimensions of a person’s life: biological, psychological, social and spiritual. This program empowers those struggling with anxiety by teaching manageable coping strategies that decrease symptoms and target the root causes of anxiety. The program is delivered in four, 90-minute evening workshops, and is perfect for:

  • Those struggling with anxiety who are interested in a holistic, comprehensive approach to decreasing symptoms and improving overall wellbeing
  • People interested in holistic, non-pharmaceutical solutions to anxiety
  • Professional health care providers who see integrated, holistic care as the missing link in their practice (continuing education credits are available)

The Anxiety Explained Program was developed by a team of experts passionate about integrated, holistic health care. Dr. Joanna Rosenfeld (Naturopathic Doctor) and Dr. Bryn Hyndman (Family Physician and Naturopathic Doctor) will present biological solutions to anxiety. Registered Clinical Counsellor Jennifer Hollinshead will present psychological, social, and spiritual solutions to anxiety. We believe:

  • Treating mental health holistically dramatically improves outcomes
  • As experts, it’s our job to support, inform and empower patients to take charge of their health and wellbeing
  • Small, incremental changes lead to lasting, drastic results

I have become much more aware since the beginning of this program. Aware of thoughts, feelings, physical changes in my body. Most importantly it has reaffirmed the values that I want to get back to.
— Participant, Age 25

The most helpful parts of the workshop were the resources, the group format, and the safe welcoming environment. Each of the professionals were very caring. There were realistic expectations of individuals struggling with anxiety. The snacks and the gift bags were so indicative of your commitment to the workshop and it’s participants.”
— Participant, Age 62
The Anxiety Explained program gave me an understanding of anxiety and how it works for me, individually. My communication has improved by being able to name a feeling, need or value. Finally, I know I’m not alone, and I feel proactive about doing something for myself and my anxiety.
— Participant, Age 41
