Project Description

Anxiety

Anxiety is an overwhelming sense of worry and dread. You realize that you are worrying about everything and anything. Things that others do not even think of. You cannot let this worry go. It goes round in circles & gets to a point where you cannot think clearly. The worry keeps you awake and you feel ‘on edge’ all the time. You feel nauseous, nervous, panicky. It feels as if something bad is bound to happen. With this worry comes a racing heart, pit in your stomach, tight chest, difficulty breathing, you battle to concentrate and become forgetful.

People may experience:

  • Feeling nervous, restless or tense

  • Sense of impending danger, panic or doom

  • An increased heart rate and hyperventilating (breathing rapidly)

  • Sweating and trembling

  • Feeling weak and tired, difficulty sleeping, unable to concentrate on anything other than the present worry

  • Gastrointestinal problems

Our Approach

We will work together to identify stressors or triggers. I will get you sleeping well and taking care of yourself again. We will work on therapeutic techniques such as mindfulness, cognitive behavioural therapy (reframing your thought process). If talk therapy is not enough, we will discuss various medication options which may be short-term relievers or more long-term anxiety dampeners such as anti-anxiety antidepressants.

TESTIMONIAL

Dr Comrie and her practice are delightful, kind, compassionate and loving.

I have been a patient of Dr Comrie since 2016 when she correctly diagnosed me (something my previous physiatrists hadn’t been able to do).  I see Dr Comrie on a monthly bases to manage my illness.  She is very caring and open to my input.  I have overcome so much since I started seeing her over two years ago. It’s pleasant visiting the practice.  Dr Comrie’s receptionist, Berri, is very upbeat and efficient and the practice is comfortable and clean. You can often spot squirrels from Dr Comrie’s consulting room 😉

Dr Comrie has been treating me as a psychological patient since 2011. From the age of 35, I had been seen by at least 12 different psychiatrists to no avail. Within a half an hour of seeing Laura she diagnosed me. Although there have been additional issues since then. Laura has stood by me through this and then made numerous attempts to involve my family in helping find solutions. Laura has always made me feel, we’ll get through this all be it one day at a time. Her staff have always been kind and helpful, a huge plus when receiving treatment that requires a lot of patience. Not only did or does Laura treat me psychiatrically, Laura goes the full hog to ensure all my medical needs are met and resolved. Even in my new marriage relationship, Laura has been the stalwart guiding us the way. I am grateful to have such a professional, caring, empathetic Psychiatrist to help me learn to live life on life’s terms. Laura you have saved my life and made life livable on many occasions. I am very appreciative of your ever special support and therapy. I don’t have the words to express how grateful and indebted I am.

I had my first consultation with Dr Laura Comrie in June 2017. I was referred to Dr Comrie by my specialist physician as I was suffering from depression and anxiety. Laura initially set about getting my medication correct for the symptoms I was experiencing. With time she has adjusted my medication to suit my changing circumstances and state of mind. From my first session, I found Laura to be a caring, empathetic, non-judgemental, warm, understanding and trustworthy support. I feel like I am in touch with myself again as Laura has helped me to reconnect with the real me. I now continue with a monthly session with Laura and look forward to the wisdom she continues to bring to my life. I can highly recommend Dr Comrie for anyone who is suffering from anxiety and depression.

I cancelled my first appointment with Dr Comrie because I didn’t think my problem was bad enough to need a psychiatrist. A few months later, I made another appointment. I considered cancelling again. Going to that appointment is one of the best decisions I have ever made. My only regret is that I hadn’t made it 10 years earlier.

Dr Comrie is one amazing, awesome, accommodating, high-spirited doctor. She is so very humane. I love her all around the world and I wouldn’t trade her for the world.
