The most important factor…

The pressure is on at the start of the week. I see all my face to face and ‘virtual’ clients from Monday to Wednesday and do consultancy work and stuff for the Fearless Female group on Thursday and Friday. Emails and social media stuff is done as early in the week as possible, so that […]

Feeling like a Fraud…

I sometimes get quizzical looks and questions about having suffered badly from anxiety. It was such a long time ago but even now, I remember exactly how debilitating it felt. I’m naturally confident and upbeat and some would say quite a strong personality…….although I’m aware that some may phrase that differently !! I notice that […]

Health Anxiety Secrets…

If you ask Google about health anxiety, you’ll be met with huge amounts of information. I always think this is great for learning more about what exactly health anxiety is but pretty rubbish if you’re looking for solutions. An attempt at looking for solutions will come up with things like mindfulness, take more walks and […]

Top tips to handle negative thoughts…

There’s a huge difference between worry thoughts and intrusive thoughts. If you have a worry thought about not being able to pay your bills and ending up homeless, this is a worry thought rather than an intrusive one. There is however an overlap between intrusive thoughts and worry thoughts as they often happen to people […]

Intrusive thoughts…

You’re just getting on with your day, when out of the blue a strange and often upsetting thought pops up in your head. Why does your brain do this and are the thoughts true? Could the thoughts be the real you and your true self? Do any of these sound familiar? You’re driving on the […]

Narcissism

There’s a lot of talk about ‘narcissism’ and I hear it becoming a commonly used word. There’s a huge difference between somebody who has narcissistic behaviours and a clinical diagnosis of narcissistic personality disorder. Somebody who has a tendency towards narcissistic behaviour will be selfish, self-centred and have a need for attention to be focused […]

Perfectly imperfect…

What does perfection look like?   If perfection is used positively, you’ll be goal-driven and motivated with a (seemingly) strong sense of focus. If you use perfectionism negatively, you will set internal standards for yourself that are impossible to achieve, which will leave you feeling disappointed (in yourself). You’ll not only evaluate yourself negatively, but […]

Are you in control?

I can’t swim very well. I can swim, but i’m not a very strong swimmer. Because I work with fear and anxiety, I feel it’s important to challenge myself and keep my own mindset tip-top. Every year, I do something that challenges me, although Covid has delayed that slightly.  A couple of years ago, I […]

Are you suffering with disturbed sleep?

Xmas is a time when our usual sleep times and routines go right out the window. We all tend to go to bed later and enjoy the luxury of lying-in bed later. The problem with this is that it upsets your natural rhythm and that can be difficult to reset. If you’re experiencing stress in […]

Counselling Cheshire

The moment when you think your life’s going to pieces

(And exactly what you can do to fix it without NHS waiting lists and anti-depressants) See if this sounds familiar… It’s the school run. You drop your kids off at the gate and then rush off; can’t risk awkward small talk with the mums. Then the weekend comes. A friend’s 40th. You haven’t been out […]

Don’t just take my word for it...

Cheshire Housewives

As an ex-athlete I’ve always advocated the benefits of keeping in shape physically, but it’s just as important to look after your mental wellbeing. Book a session with Wendy, she’s the person to help you look after your brain just as you would your body.

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

Sam Bailey

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. Wendy will help you do just that!

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.

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.
