Whether you are having momentary difficulties or are facing long-standing challenges, starting therapy can feel daunting. My approach focuses on creating a safe and supportive space to explore a range of difficulties including low mood and depression, OCD, anxiety, post-traumatic stress, eating and sleeping difficulties, as well as challenges within relationships. Other interests/specialities include racial and intergenerational trauma, difficulties associated with becoming and being a parent (including the perinatal period), as well as work-related challenges. I am now offering ADHD assessment to adults.

Anxiety can take many different forms: overwhelming worry, distressing intrusive thoughts/images, an excessive need to be "absolutely certain", obsessive doubts and self-criticism, to name just a few. As a result, you may use compulsive or other problematic behaviours, or even avoid certain situations all together, in order to cope. But now these behaviours have become the problem, and they’re starting to affect your life. It can be exhausting. The good news is, however your anxiety presents itself, I can help you take back control and reclaim your life from anxiety. To learn more about me, visit my website emilygardner.co.uk
