If you're suffering from anxiety, it can feel like your stomach is always churning, your mind is constantly racing and you feel like you’re out of control. Your anxiety can show up in different areas of your life and at different times. Maybe it’s in your everyday life, or it shows up in your relationships, with money, or your work. It makes it hard for you to concentrate, to be present with people you care about and to enjoy the things you like to do. At times you feel overwhelmed and stuck like there is no way out of this feeling and you wish you could just go to sleep and wake up and the anxiety be gone.

Our emotions tell a story, they direct our actions. But unless we are aware of how they influence what we do, they can often get in the way. Louise invites you to listen not only to the story that comes from your head, but also to what your body has to say. Developing greater awareness of your emotional experience and the skills to manage it can be the springboard to creating healthier relationships with self and others, and lead to a more productive life.

In 1997 at RCH I set up groups for socially isolated teens with ASD, anxiety, shyness, bullying, sensory deficits, cognitive & receptive language deficits & so on. Teens say that they enjoy the "judgement free space", the belonging. Their confidence grows in the groups. Parents say that they are keen and organised to come to the groups, it is the highlight of their week. They relax. I delved into the needs of socially isolated teens through my Psychodrama thesis called "Friends Are The Best Medicine". I also run Tuning Into Kids/Teens groups for parents & Family Therapy. Telehealth is available for kids/teens/parent/families!

My psychotherapeutic practice opens a vital place where an individual's speech, and sometimes their silence, can be generated and heard. Matters that carry such urgency —sadness, despair, anguish, but also joy and pleasure— are understood within this approach as always profoundly individual, demanding to be met in their singularity. Together we work to allow new perspectives to emerge, new lives to be made.
