Mental Health Help
Why am I so expensive?

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.

How many sessions will I need?

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.

Will it work?

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.

What can you fix?

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.

Does it need to be face to face?

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.

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.

Jason Jarrett

Retired ex-professional football who played for Bury, Wigan, Stoke, Preston, Norwich, Leicester and Brighton during a 14 year career. After leaving professional football, Jason battled depression and recovered with the help of therapy and family support.

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.
