So the world has changed, have you?

So since I last wrote my blog quite a lot has changed.  We have been faced with the realities of a pandemic which changed life for every one of us. Some of those changes have given many of us the chance to spend more time with our families, time to think about our lives and […]

What have we learnt?

Hi I hope you are staying well. As we now find ourselves with  glimmers of forward movement in terms of being able to return to some forms of ‘normal’ life, I wonder what we can learn from these recent months of lockdown. I have recently been asking clients what they think they have learnt from […]

You, your brain and 3 positive things!

    Hi So we are beginning another week of challenge and uncertainty and I’m sure most of us have had some down days along the way recently.  It’s easy to get stuck in the trap of seeing only the negative and yet there’s good news… Your brain doesn’t have to get stuck in the […]

Get curious about your emotions

  Hi I really hope you are staying well during these challenging times. I think we have all found it hard to accept that we don’t have the freedom to go and do what we want, where we want and with whom we want and whilst that can be frustrating I’m sure we can all […]

How are we all doing ?

I guess we are all struggling with the development of the Covid-19 challenge. Some of us will find the loss of our normal routine hard to accept and adapt to.  Some of us will struggle with the lack of certainty; many of us are facing financial uncertainty as well as anxiety over our own health […]

How can I change things?

Have you ever … changed the picture? As humans we have the most amazing tool called the mind, an amazing piece of engineering. However as with many things, it can work for us but also against us. Have you ever dreaded blushing in an interview or feeling awkward in a  social situation and spent hours […]

The cage of anxiety

Ever found yourself turning down invitations? Not applying for promotion or new jobs? That’s often where anxiety gets you … or rather keeps you …    stuck in your own cage.   Anxiety always causes pain and understandably we’d all rather run away from pain than keep going towards it!  And as a strategy, avoidance works well. […]

Why do my clients come to see me?

Most of my clients come to see me for help with anxiety – because that’s what I specialise in. Sometimes they have experienced severe physical symptoms of anxiety which have become unbearable over time; blushing, sweating, IBS, insomnia, a racing heartbeat, lack of concentration etc can all be overwhelming. Often they have been avoiding certain […]

Social Anxiety

Over the years I have seen many clients with social anxiety and have witnessed  how miserable it has made them.  Social anxiety is an intense fear of being negatively judged or even rejected by others.   Suffers often cope by avoiding certain situations, sometimes for years and yet whilst any avoidance strategy may bring relief, […]
