If you've always been a worrier or are facing difficult times, I can help. We will equip you with a practical strategy for keeping stress in check, right away.
I work with all forms of stress, including panic attacks, intrusive thoughts, bad sleep and depression.
Sometimes, anxiety is the result of painful life events. If you have experienced any form of abuse, bullying or loss, I can help you to put this properly in the past and move forwards.
My PTSD treatment is quick and effective, with no need to trawl through painful details.
Do I only work with men?
I see male and female clients, but I have expert understanding of how stress affects men. This includes the anger, addictions and procrastination activities that leave us feeling stuck and out of control.
If you are experiencing relationship difficulties or work-related stress, I can help with assertiveness and positive communications.
Anxiety can also underlie sexual challenges and performance-related fears. My solution-focused approach is effective for overcoming embarrassment or shame and getting on with life.
How long will it take?
Sometimes, only a couple of sessions are required. Just one effective change can cause a positive domino effect, helping you to meet your wider needs.
Or we might have further sessions to address worries and challenges one at a time and support you in your goals.
Either way, you won't be asked to commit to a block of appointments. At the end of each session we will assess how to move forward.
What happens next?
If this sounds like what you need, just call or drop me a line and I will get back to you asap.
We can have a chat on the phone or via email for you to tell me about yourself and ask any questions. I'm usually able to see you within a week, either in person at my Basingstoke practice or via Zoom.
Training, qualifications & experience
I use the Human Givens approach to therapy. Free from psychobabble, this is a modern method that is proven to help people function well.
I’ve lived my own fair share of self-doubt, procrastination and addiction too. I’m passionate about empowering clients to make changes in their lives, as effectively and creatively as possible.
