About

Anxiety is normal. Yes, I just said that! Yet many of us grow up with the idea that anxious feelings are negative and to be avoided at all costs. I spent years trying to escape my anxiety, which only made it worse. The more I pushed, the more it pushed back, until I spent all my time pushing. It was exhausting, resulting in OCD behaviours and panic attacks. Then I learnt to change my relationship with anxiety. I realised that to be anxious is to be human. I stopped struggling and instead began to work with my anxiety in new ways that gave me more options, both in the moment and in the long term.
I used my experience to build an approach that focuses on anxiety and the problematic behaviours we use to deal with it. It's based on Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT), a therapy rooted in clinical research which has been proven effective with a wide range of issues. It's practical, experiential, and will give you tools to start using straight away.
If anxiety is getting in the way of your life, then I can offer you a powerful new perspective. No matter how bad things seem, there is always the opportunity to move in a direction that feels more helpful. I offer both brief and long term therapy and flexible, accessible rates.
