Anxiety wears you down, stops you sleeping, hinders your work life, gets in the way of how you view yourself and others. You may know why you are anxious - but still the thoughts go round and round and you don't know how to make them stop.
People recommend relaxation, yoga, exercise - all helpful. Yet they don't always solve those nagging thoughts, nor have lasting effect. You may be able to get Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) through your doctor - usually after being on a long waiting list.
How long have you been anxious for? As long as you can remember? Since certain traumatic events in your life? Since you have been in your current relationship?
Maybe none of these. Talking stuff through and getting feedback will give you some tools to help you manage all this anxiety. On the way, you will probably learn more about yourself and what gets in the way of making you feel better.
I work with individuals and with couples. My experience is wide ranging from anxiety and abuse to panic disorders to relationships to work stress, which affect their lives. Building successful relationships - whether with intimate others, siblings, parents, friends and, of course, ourselves - is key to feeling good. That means you need to feel good to start with, which is where I come in.
My experience over 15 years is that, above all, we all need to feel heard and understood, particularly when we haven't had much experience of this from important others in our lives. This is where I come in.

You don't have to put up with feelings which get in the way of enjoying life, or having a decent relationship. I specialise in working with couples and with those in other close relationship.
I also offer individuals particular expertise and experience in abuse and bullying, stress and anxiety, compulsions and obsessions, self-esteem issues and issues relating to being assertive and self-confident.
Imagine looking in the mirror one morning and seeing smiling eyes, rather than worried frown, or seeing a new found confidence in that reflection. That can be what therapy does for you. Ring me now (or email,or text).
