Welcome to my website, I help people struggling with anxiety and stress to rebuild their resilience.
People dealing with anxiety often have a range of symptoms including panic attacks, breathlessness, brain fog, heart palpitations, nausea, upset stomach, restlessness, and sleep issues. Often they just can’t stop worrying.
I know these symptoms can be debilitating because I have experienced them, but they are normal stress response reactions.
I can help you manage your symptoms and develop better coping mechanisms.
Whatever the problem, why not call me today and let’s talk about how we can move you forward?
My Areas of Speciality
What you can expect...
Our sessions will be tailored to you and the problem you want to address. Some people think that therapy takes a long time, but it doesn’t have to be like that. Research says that it takes between 3 and 4 months to embed new habits. Think of that! You can transform your life in a few months!
I am qualified in several modalities and I will help you build an effective toolbox of techniques which will help you in any situation. The exciting thing is you will very quickly see results.
If a problem is so difficult you cannot talk about it, we can find other ways to work with it. My sessions are safe and non-judgemental, and you always have control. My clients think of me as their biggest cheerleader helping them to create all the changes they want to see in their life.
Years ago, I was a disabled blue badge holder chronically debilitated from five prolapsed spinal discs and dystonia.
In a relatively short period, I lost my best friend, my wonderful grandmother, my partner and both parents. I was also four years into the most exhausting bout of insomnia, sleeping most nights for only an hour or so.
Add to this mix work related stress, unresolved childhood trauma and training as a Secondary school teacher and you have some idea of the muddle I found myself in.
Despite three MRI scans and numerous attempts at medication, the medical profession couldn’t help. They were looking for a physical cause,
I only found resolution when I explored my own mental and emotional health.
The catalyst was December five years ago, I was involved in a car accident and my mother died unexpectedly on Christmas Day.
Something had to change.
I took back responsibility from my doctors. I treated myself kindly. I stopped accumulating self-blame and I began to change my life one step at a time. And I’ve never looked back.
I can show you how to do the same.
