I was talking to somebody about this last week. She wanted to know if she made the decision to invest in an appointment, was it going to be a good fit for her situation.
I simply said: “Well if this can fast forward you to happiness and living the life you want, faster and more efficiently than if you were going go to endless counselling sessions or take mind numbing drugs, then any time, money and energy invested in me pays for it’s self many times over by the time you get there.”
I said: “Take my word, it will do what you want.” Finally, I said; “You are the only one who can convince yourself that it’s right.”
However if you feel that you will not be able to follow through and get that result I understand – this is defiantly not for everyone and sometimes it’s just not a good fit.
This is one of those ‘how long is a piece of string’ questions. What I can tell you is that I like to work quickly and get you in and out as soon as possible. I love you all dearly and will stand firmly in your corner and go out to battle shoulder to shoulder with you. But… the only way I can keep myself sane is to get you what you want as soon as possible and wave a fond goodbye. I hear about the deepest, darkest, most torturous things daily, and I need to come up alongside you and feel your pain, but always moving towards a solution. I’m also not always a big fan of weekly sessions. Usually 3 or 4 close together, and then you’ll be in a position to start doing things differently.
I will not work with anyone who is not a good fit or who I don’t think I can help. I will only work with people I like and am confident I can do a really good job for. The last thing I would ever want is to ruin my reputation. I’ve been doing the job for over 20 years, there’s no husband propping me financially in the background, I pay my own bills and have to live and die by the strength of my work. I must be doing something right, or I’d be out of a job.
If you are suffering from any form of anxiety, depression or just feel like your life isn’t as good as it should be, then chances are I can certainly help. I’m extremely well qualified in lots of different types of interventions. This means that I have huge flexibility to work in a way that’s a good fit for you. Anxiety spectrum, depression and relationship problems are the majority of my work, but every problem is very different. It doesn’t matter how small or severe the problem is. If it’s affecting your life, then let me at it, nobody needs to suffer.
Skype can be useful, and every bit as effective if you’re happy to use it. I have clients all over the world, from Australia to Barbados who use Skype. All I ask, is that if you’re somewhere warm and beautiful, to keep the walking around with the laptop thing to show me where you are, to a minimum. On a wet, cold day in good old Blighty, there’s only so much of this a girl can take.

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.
