When we’re feeling stressed and anxious it can feel overwhelming and stop us doing the things that bring us meaning in our lives. We can find ourselves constantly worrying, trying to control everything in our lives to the smallest detail, struggling to concentrate, unable to switch off, and exhaust ourselves just trying to manage the anxiety. We can develop fears and phobia for many reasons, and they can limit our lives. We may feel judged in social situations, unable to speak in public, or feel panicked at the thought of needles, dogs, confined spaces, crowds, heights, driving or water. We often cope by avoiding these things at all costs and can experience terror, panic attacks, or fainting when we are unable to. Sometimes this works well and other times it can mean we are unable to participate in events without significant preparations, anxiety, and sometimes miss out on things all together.
A psychologist can help you develop a different relationship with your anxiety in which you’re not constantly fighting against it. We will work out where your anxiety is helpful and where it impacts your quality of life and learn strategies to reduce the impact it has on your wellbeing. Psychological treatments for phobias are among the best evidenced and most effective of all mental health difficulties. I am trained in a range of evidence-based techniques to help you overcome your anxiety or phobia, whatever that may be. You’ll need to be willing to practice techniques between sessions for them to be effective so it’s important that we start with a good understanding of how your life will improve by overcoming your difficulties.: ClosedMon8:00 am - 7:00 pmTue8:00 am - 7:00 pmWed8:00 am - 7:00 pmThu8:00 am - 7:00 pmFri8:00 am - 7:00 pmSatClosedSunClosedRelative to the average, approximately how much do you charge: £££ - I charge about average in my area
