Are you a teenager or young adult who worries a lot about the future? Are you often feeling sad, anxious or irritable seeking perfection in everything? Or could it be that you feel awkward and anxious in social situations where you don’t know the people well? 
 Do you feel hopeless and/or helpless in changing anything? How about a space for you to just press pause and be able to talk with someone neutral about these concerns and learn practical proven strategies that use the whole mind: the conscious and unconscious parts of the mind?
I support teenagers and young adults who are ready to transform their relationship with anxiety and stress combining both traditional cognitive behavioural therapy with hypnotherapy which enables lasting change on the unconscious level. I like to refer to it as connecting to their inner warrior rather than their inner worrier.
Helping you face your fears, functioning better and even thriving requires the right skillsets. That's my sweet spot. When you struggle it can often seem like a roller coaster. Contact me to find more steady ground.

I work with anxiety in teenagers focusing on both cognitive therapy and evidence based mind-body tools such as EFT(emotional freedom technique) to reduce anxiety and stress. During our initial sessions, we'll focus on specific situations that create anxiety and learn the link between thoughts-feelings-behaviours

In your teenager's first session, we'll explore a specific situation that creates anxiety for them using the mind to calm the body and using the body to calm the mind. I then teach them how to create a mental picture of the best case scenario using all their senses. I'll also use them how to reduce anxiety in the moment. We'll also learn how our thoughts impact our feelings.
