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 (very topical at the moment!), 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 that the end of the world is nigh, everybody hates us and its some sort of divine retribution. Trust me on this one, you will get through this and in 3 months from now, will even be able to reflect positively and pat yourself on the back for handling a disaster well, but only if you put these 3 things into action for yourself;

DON’T PANIC!
Yes you will have a huge shot of adrenaline when you first find out that will send you into meltdown, but diffuse the situation for yourself and don’t start making knee-jerk decisions. Sit down, take some time to think about a plan of action and consider your options. Move about a bit to disperse the adrenaline and you will start to feel a lot calmer.

DON’T AVOID IT.
Avoiding things will only make it worse and make you feel more anxious and out of control. Making a plan of action and starting to roll it out will put you right back in control of things so that you feel that you are starting to change things for the better. Do not lie in bed for 3 weeks thinking about what life has dealt you!

REACH OUT.
Even if you wouldn’t normally do this, find somebody you trust to run things over with who can support you. If you haven’t got anybody you trust enough, book in to see a professional such as myself and then all you have to do is turn up.

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.

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.

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

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.
