"No need to hurry. No need to sparkle. No need to be anybody but oneself" - Virginia Woolf
Anxiety was designed to be helpful. It warns us of potential danger or risk. It's ultimately there to help keep us alive.
But when it becomes maladaptive, losing it original purpose to protect us, it becomes debilitating, crippling and exhausting.
The reasons for anxiety disorders vary. For many it may be a neurological imbalance. For some it may be unresolved trauma. Others may be lacking in self-worth, constantly striving to please others and forgetting oneself.
Anxiety comes in many forms and manifests in different ways for each of us. I work with a client's own unique experience without diagnosing or pathologising. It's not your fault, things just got a bit unbalanced along the way. You can recalibrate and reset yourself. You are in charge of your anxiety, not the other way round.

I have worked with clients experiencing the following forms of anxiety:
I worked for Anxiety UK as an Approved Therapist for over a year. During that time I have undertaken various training with them on anxiety disorders.
I have also undertaken continual professional development on treating Generalised Anxiety and Panic Disorder at Regent's University.
