Stop fear and anxiety crippling your life and find the happiness you’re desperate for.

4am is the hour of the over-thinkers. The worriers, the planners, the anxiety, fear-ridden the women just like you, who start every sentence with ‘but what will I do if that happens?’ I would suspect that even if your sleep isn’t disturbed, it’s because you’re just so plain exhausted from your day. You run the […]

What to do when life kicks you in the teeth

There’s not a person alive who hasn’t been in this place at some point in their lives. Your house has been flooded, you lose your job, and your significant other decides to leave suddenly. The list is endless and we all react to huge and unexpected stressors in the same way. We panic and decide […]

Perfectionsim and anxiety

Perfectly Imperfect

Of course, we all want to do things well, a quest for perfection can be admirable. There is however, a huge difference between wanting to do things well and having a problem with perfectionism. It’s incredibly frustrating when people persist in perfecting tasks and attending to detail in a way that makes tasks take much […]

Did you choose the wrong relationship?

I’m a bit of an old romantic….actually, that’s a total understatement. I’m a ridiculous, overly sentimental sucker for love and romance, whose favorite book is Wuthering Heights. I know that’s probably difficult to believe with my small person syndrome/Scrappy-Doo exterior, but that’s just how it is. Unlike some psychologists who consider themselves far too important […]

What to say that’s helpful

  The 4 best things to say to somebody who is depressed 1. I’m here for you. People with depression are trapped in a cycle of self – loathing and are unable to reach out to others. Don’t assume they realise you want to support them, shout it from the rooftops. 2. What can I […]

Mental Health Help

Mental Health Help

Mental health help is an absolute sh*t show. It’s unregulated, disregarded and hardly anyone seems to get the help they need. It takes real courage for you to stand up and admit you’ve got something you need help with, to end up feeling confused, worthless and worse off. I’m beginning to get really pi**ed off […]

When Anxiety Triggers Anger.

That feeling of hot, prickly anger that overwhelms you. Clenched teeth and nails digging into your palms. Anxiety can often trigger debilitating anger. It may be triggered by that insensitive joke. Or remembering how badly you were treated. Or maybe by frustration with yourself. Anxiety gives you that sense of being out of control of […]

Has Xmas Put Pressure On Your Relationship?

Xmas is the time of year that tests relationships more than any other, and relationship problems start to become more obvious. Without the usual routine of work to dilute and mask the cracks that have appeared, things can start to feel really strained. When you’re at the point when just the sound of them breathing […]

Are You A People Pleaser?

People pleasing is exhausting and usually leaves you feeling frustrated, angry and downtrodden. It’s ingrained behaviour and usually, goes hand in hand with low self-esteem. People pleasers usually think this behaviour makes them feel better about themselves, as others like them more. What often surprises people pleasers is that when they manage to adjust their […]

What’s Your Life Purpose?

I get really excited when I’m alerted to new research. I am, of course, waiting for that magical piece of clinical research telling me how to solve problems more efficiently. Magic wand territory, unfortunately. I’ve just read some really interesting stuff about ‘life purpose’. It’s been found to help with the following: Treats depression. Reduces […]

I want a permanent solution to my problem now

Don’t just take my word for it...

Dare to dream big and Wendy’s THE person to help get you there.

The most exciting thing in the world is getting a chance to tear it all up and start again. Keep all the things you want and throw out everything you don’t.

It’s great to have a leading psychologist such as Wendy in the Manchester area, outside of her Harley Street practice. After publicly raising awareness of mental health issues and myself recovering from depression, I know how immensely life-changing expert intervention can be.

Wendy is great at what she does; she made me feel at ease immediately and really helped me work through some issues.

Tara Costello

It’s funny but from the minute I met her I felt so relaxed and she was so easy to talk to. Thank you!

Stevie Brown

Wendy isn’t only really good at what she does, she’s also really easy to talk to.

Gabriel Wilson

I want to thank you Wendy from the bottom of my heart for guiding me through what must have been the most difficult time of my life.

Raza Syed

I was told she was the best and they were right.

Noelle Dray

Although I consider myself a confident person, I was really nervous when I met Wendy for the first time. I had only emailed her before so it was really nerve wracking walking up the stairs to her office. I can honestly say it’s one of the best things I have ever done. Wendy is really normal, no in fact she isn’t normal as she is unfailingly bright and smiley even when she has to listen to me moan on about how awful my life was. It feels like having a chat with somebody who just gets you and you can trust with things you have never trusted anybody else with before. The magic bit comes when things you have talked about just pop up into your head and you start to do things differently. Wendy once joked about not having a magic wand, but I think she has.

Paul Hendry

I came to Wendy with a set of problems I have never been able to fully explain to anyone, which included grief, many family issues and alcohol problems. Wendy truly has an active listening style and absorbs everything you are saying, whilst not making you feel analysed, it is an incredible skill. She astounded me at how she got to the crux of the issues so fast. So much so that we both agreed I only needed one session with her, obviously this may not be the case with everyone but I would confidently recommend her to anyone, regardless of your problems. There was no awkwardness or even clock watching, she is wonderful at what she does, take the plunge and make an appointment, you will not regret it. Life is a direction not a destination and she will get you on the path again.
