Do You Need a MindShift?

posted by Scott Williams

The most frequent concerns for which our clients seek counselling are anxiety and depression.  One in five people will struggle with mental health issues like these during their lifetime.  The 2014 Waterloo Region Vital Signs Report tells us that more residents of our community rated their mental health as “fair or poor” than anywhere else in Canada!

KW Counselling Services is here to help.  Anyone is able to see a counsellor without having to make an appointment by coming to our Walk In Counselling Clinic (Thursdays from noon-6pm).  If you prefer to schedule an appointment, please call our Intake Team at 519.884.0000 x222.  However, for those times when you can’t see a counsellor, there is MindShift.

MindShift is a mobile app created by Anxiety BC.  MindShift can be a sort of portable coach to help you with these challenges.  The app includes strategies to deal with everyday anxiety, as well as specific tools to tackle:

  • Test Anxiety
  • Perfectionism
  • Social Anxiety
  • Performance Anxiety
  • Worry
  • Panic
  • Conflict
