How Do You Know If You Have Generalised Anxiety Disorder?

Do you wake up most mornings with your stomach in knots and before you’ve even rolled out of bed you’ve got the feeling that something terrible’s about to happen? If that sounds like you, you could be among the 3 million people in the UK living with generalised anxiety disorder (GAD). The evolution of anxiety […]

Stop fear and anxiety crippling your life and find the happiness you’re desperate for.

4am is the hour of the over-thinkers. The worriers, the planners, the anxiety, fear-ridden the women just like you, who start every sentence with ‘but what will I do if that happens?’ I would suspect that even if your sleep isn’t disturbed, it’s because you’re just so plain exhausted from your day. You run the […]

Perfectionsim and anxiety

Perfectly Imperfect

Of course, we all want to do things well, a quest for perfection can be admirable. There is however, a huge difference between wanting to do things well and having a problem with perfectionism. It’s incredibly frustrating when people persist in perfecting tasks and attending to detail in a way that makes tasks take much […]

Mental Health Help

Mental Health Help

Mental health help is an absolute sh*t show. It’s unregulated, disregarded and hardly anyone seems to get the help they need. It takes real courage for you to stand up and admit you’ve got something you need help with, to end up feeling confused, worthless and worse off. I’m beginning to get really pi**ed off […]

When Anxiety Triggers Anger.

That feeling of hot, prickly anger that overwhelms you. Clenched teeth and nails digging into your palms. Anxiety can often trigger debilitating anger. It may be triggered by that insensitive joke. Or remembering how badly you were treated. Or maybe by frustration with yourself. Anxiety gives you that sense of being out of control of […]

People who experience anxiety problems often want to know ‘why me?’ Research tells us that there are 3 main factors that anxiety – related problems can be linked to; • Environment, level of life stress and available support. • Personality type and childhood experience (learning). • […]

Overcoming Phobia

  A specific phobia describes the persistent fear of an object or situation. Fear of spiders, wasps, birds, snakes, blood or things like needle phobia are quite common. The fear of something produces both a psychological and physical response, so you register the fear and also feel it in your body. Psychology explains phobias as […]

Why Are You Still Struggling?

I’ve just had a review posted on my Facebook. Its an incredibly brave move to do so. Posting this may mean that somebody finally gets the help they need. Mental health is a problem that people don’t like to talk about, and the taboo of mental health problems means that people often don’t get the […]

The stigma of mental health problems

I always feel very honoured when people choose to work with me. I consider it a great privilege that they feel confident enough in my training and experience to help them through tough times to the other side. Sometimes people turn up in my office that have had a particularly tough time, and this client […]

What Will You Change?

I’m always on a quest to avoid using ‘psychobabble’ with people. Over the years I’ve developed a repertoire of phrases I use to talk about psychological theory, so that people find it easier to understand what’s going on for them. One of the phrases I use is ‘ground hog day’ based on the 1993 film. […]
