I work with people experiencing a range of personal challenges, including anxiety, depression and stress. These and other circumstances may impact you in your personal and/or professional life.

I am aware of developmental trauma where from conception to now, events have chipped away at how you experience the world. Developmental trauma can be difficult to make sense of, as your life may appear normal. However, there may be signs that something is troubling you, consciously or unconsciously. You may:

  • find it hard being in and maintaining close relationships
  • have a sense of ‘not really being here’ or ‘hollow inside’
  • have a constant worry such as 'getting it wrong' or 'being found out'
  • be overly compliant and find it hard to say 'no'
  • be constantly busy
  • feel really angry or frustrated at those around you
  • feel flat and rudderless in life's waters
  • have turned to alcohol or other forms of addiction to make your world seem easier

Whatever it is, you are likely to be missing a sense of peace.
