Whether you have been experiencing anxiety for some time, or have been diagnosed with an anxiety disorder such as generalised anxiety disorder, social anxiety disorder, (complex) post-traumatic stress disorder, phobia, or panic disorder, the anxiety treatment I provide is effective and relatively fast-working.
Anxiety is your brain’s way of alerting you to a threat to your mental or physical well-being or survival, whether a definite threat or a potential threat, and whether that threat is:
- real or imagined,
- major or minor.
Just as we feel pain when we burn our skin which tells us to move away from the cause of the pain, we experience anxiety when the brain perceives a threat to our well-being and is telling us to prevent or extinguish the threat/danger.
When the brain experiences what it perceives as a threat, it initiates the fight-or-flight response to help us stay alive. This is why you will experience anxiety in the form of psychological and/or physical symptoms such as:
Typical Psychological Symptoms of Anxiety:

Some of the people I’ve helped had been hiding in their home, some in just one room in their house, because they had become so incapacitated by their anxiety before they came for anxiety coaching. And it doesn’t matter how long you’ve had anxiety, I’ve helped clients who have been suffering from anxiety for years and even decades. Some of them purely came for anxiety help, others came to resolve more than one issue in their life.
The anxiety treatment I help clients with is a tried and tested system that you can use, and it works every time.
Feel calm again
You want to get your life back to ‘normal’, to how it was before the anxiety started taking over your life.
Perhaps you’ve sought help from a doctor who has referred you for some form of counselling, or has prescribed medication for your anxiety symptoms.
Or perhaps you’ve attempted self-help anxiety treatment methods.
Or have a child (16 or over) who needs help.
The anxiety treatment I provide is simple to implement. It’s empowering as it helps you to understand what anxiety is and what it isn’t, why certain approaches don’t work, and how you can resolve your anxiety or anxiety disorder.
You’re not meant to live with indefinite anxiety any more than you’re meant to live with a bleeding arm.
I help the vast majority of anxiety coaching clients in just 2-3 coaching sessions. Some are on anti-anxiety drugs (anxiolytic medication) when they first come for coaching.
My anxiety treatment is science-based, solution-focused, compassionate, non-judgmental and uplifting.
You’ll tell me about your personal experience, as everyone’s anxiety experience is unique to them. I’ll help with a combination of skillful questioning, sharing important insights, using my intuition, and providing you with simple and effective tasks/strategies that you’re happy to use to resolve your specific anxiety completely.
I will also share natural, enjoyable methods for soothing your anxiety symptoms, as and when they appear, whilst you’re on your journey to becoming anxiety free.
