  • Mental health supports and access to professionals is not always possible for many. We here at Royal Alberta College hope to help fill this gap. If you are looking to understand what anxiety is? Symptoms and risks of anxiety? Or wondered why you possibly avoided things due to that little voice in your head? Well that is all part of the anxiety cycle, and Kayla Chorley, a registered counseling therapist and founder of Pineapple Therapy, answers all these questions in our Managing Anxiety video series. Not only does she break down what anxiety is, how it is connected to avoidance, how to recognize it but she also connects anxiety to perfectionism and ultimately provides multiple strategies to help you cope. The Managing Anxiety video series provide you access, free of charge, to a registered therapist and provides information on not just anxiety but also emotional regulation, mindfulness and much more!

Anxiety 101

It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).
