I’m not sure that CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy) is much of a secret, but what it will do is challenge the way you think about things. The theory behind CBT is based on the fact that our thoughts, emotions, physical sensations and behaviour are all connected. What we think is what we feel. If we […]
I heard a client say this yesterday and it stuck in my mind. I often see certain behaviours that clients do amazingly well. Like a superpower, some people have some skills or behaviours that are incredible. When I’m building a plan of how to help people change whatever they’re struggling with, finding their superpower is […]
I was beyond excited when my Overcoming Anxiety workbook hit the number one Amazon Kindle download for both mental health and psychology. Writing the book was a real labour of love, especially when my life is so busy, and I type soooo slowly. I wrote the book as a practical, dot to dot, step by step […]
Have you noticed that not many people seem to talk about OCD? Yes, there are people on social media that talk about it, but not as many as you’d expect. I often wonder if it’s because the ‘influencers’ aren’t trained psychologists and OCD can be trickier and more complicated to overcome. But you can definitely […]
I’ve spoken to a lovely client this week whom I’d last seen about 5 years ago. I’d seen her once, and she tells me she was much better, and has been, until a few weeks ago. The problem with anxiety is that it can come and go. When I help people, I help them to […]
Usually, when something feels a bit too good to be true, there’s a catch. There’s a thing you have to do, that takes ages, and is really complicated; you have to invite lots of friends and get them to do something. You know what I mean……..there’s stuff that needs doing. And if you’re anything like […]
I’m not a huge fan of valentine’s day. If your significant other only tells you once a year (on valentine’s day) how they feel about you, and how much you mean to them, it’s time to reassess things. It also puts huge pressure on people who are not in a relationship. You only have to […]
My life has often felt like an endless round of battles, from neighbour disputes to stealing your parking space. It’s easy to try and take advantage of a 5ft woman who clearly doesn’t have a back-up team. It’s that natural bully in people when they think someone seems easy to bully. The problem with all […]
So many people confuse physical symptoms with emotional or psychological ones. A sleeping problem can be depression, but it’s easier to tell yourself (and others) that you struggle with insomnia. Hands up who’s thought constant fatigue was the symptom of a health problem rather than stress or anxiety? Maybe the constant headaches are symptoms of […]
Blue Monday is officially the most depressing day of the year. How are you feeling? It’s particularly tough if you already have stuff going on to feel anything but stuck. When I speak to clients who are stuck, I know that the first thing I need to do is to ‘unstick’ them. […]

It’s great to have a leading psychotherapist such as Wendy in the Cheshire 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.
