Weed It, Seed It​, Feed It

Stress & Anxiety Management


About The Program

Coca and Chris, the co-founders of the Weed It, Seed It, Feed It program recognized that so many of the people coming to their individual practices for a variety of conditions, were plagued by a common, underlying root cause; stress and anxiety. Some people were so overwhelmed that they really believed they would not be able to cope. Others said that they found it challenging to find resources that could help them.

With this in mind, Weed It, Seed It, Feed It was created.  Recognizing firstly, that anxiety is a learned pattern of thinking,  it's important to rid ourselves of (weed out) the things that are no longer serving to enrich our lives, such as old thought patterns and belief systems. Secondly, we need to plant more positive, affirming beliefs and thoughts (seeds) to change the things we can control, and learn to manage the things we can't. This program also goes a step further to demonstrate how you can actually start to develop a creative mindset (feed more positive and powerful thoughts), to not only control stress and anxiety but to truly create the life you want, whether your intention is to do well in school, improve relationships with other people, earn more money or change the status of your health.

For Teens:  It is estimated that 1 in 5 Canadians between the ages of 12 and 19 suffer from depression and other forms of mental illness and that many more teens are undiagnosed. It is one of the fastest growing segments of the population experiencing symptoms of stress and anxiety. One leading child psychiatrist from McMaster University states that "overwhelming anxiety turns on the stress system and if it is kept on, new learning can’t happen".  By providing the tools to handle day to day challenges today, teens will be more able to flourish in their school years and beyond.

For Adults:  In 2010, slightly more than 1 in 4 Canadian workers described their day-to-day lives as highly stressful, according to the General Social Survey (GSS).  And, the highest rates of hospitalization for anxiety disorders in general hospitals are among those aged 65 years and over.  Statistics also indicate that the children of adults with anxiety disorders are at much greater risk of an anxiety themselves.  Stress is almost inevitable in most parts of western society, but learning to minimize it is a skill that all people need in their toolbox.
