I didn’t realise that I had anxiety until I was in my 40’s. I just always thought I was a bit weird, different and pathetic for not coping with life better. I always felt ‘left out’, like I didn’t really get life. Other people seemed to be in on some huge cosmic joke that I just didn’t understand and this left me feeling lonely and confused. I built up some pretty unhealthy coping strategies. It was a revelation to find that how I was feeling had a name, that others felt the same and that there was help out there.
Not only did I get that help but I also studied all I could about anxiety to become an expert so that I could help others, hopefully earlier in life than me. I went on a knowledge quest and learned powerful techniques from the best of the therapies so that I could help others who, like the old me, were struggling to find themselves, lacking confidence, cripplingly self-conscious and not realising their full potential.
I now work with women who want healthier coping strategies to deal with the challenges life throws at us all. Women who, in the past, may have turned to alcohol or food or hid their true selves to stay ‘safe’. Women who deserve better, who want to show their genuine, authentic self so that they can have the deep connections they want and need to have truly rewarding lives.
When you are thinking of working with a therapist you might want to consider the following:
- You must feel you can confide in them and trust them.
- You want someone who has some experience in life, who understands your issue, can empathise with you and not be judgemental.
- They must offer support when you need it.
- It’s important that you feel comfortable talking to them and they inspire confidence.
- They should be realistic about the work you will need to do to make the changes you want and not make silly promises that you know can’t possibly be true. Everyone is different and each person makes changes at their own pace but a good therapist will give you an idea of how much time you will probably need, based on their experience, to get the result you want.
The only way you would know, unless you have a strong recommendation, is to reach out and speak to them. That’s why I offer a complimentary consultation call so that you can check out how I sound, how I work and, of course, if I feel I can help you. And even if we don’t end up working together, I’m sure we’ll have a lovely conversation anyway.
