How I ended up here…
my road to you…
On 21st August 2008 I stood in my California kitchen, waiting for my ride to the office. It was a beautiful West Coast day, the sun bouncing off the sparkling glass of the new patio doors. I’d worked so hard to build this dream home, my perfect life…my business empire, everything was seemingly going to plan.
But that day, as I stood there – ‘Boss Lady’ coffee cup at my lips – I felt strangely uneasy; I noticed my hands trembling and after a few minutes, the pins and needles in my fingers were so intense I put down my cup and started frantically trying to shake off the tension.
But as the minutes passed the symptoms grew increasingly alarming; I was hot, dizzy and my heart was pumping too fast. Twenty minutes later, as I lay on the newly varnished floor gasping for breath, I grappled for my phone in terror and slowly typed in the number we all dread having to dial…9…1….1.
AND THAT’S IMPORTANT TO NOTE…
Because you need to know there’s hope and your journey is leading somewhere better. And I’m here to tell you that it doesn’t have to be so hard...you don’t have to waste years of YOUR life in an anxiety trap.
I know for me, it wasn’t until I finally admitted I couldn’t figure it out on my own, that I reached out for therapy, and after 6 months of working with my ‘hero’ therapist Julie…I was back at the top of my world.
The panic attacks that had me in terror were GONE, and I was not only back to my old self, I was leaps and bounds beyond my former confidence levels.
They say everything happens for a reason. I believe my journey through anxiety led me to my true purpose. I trained as a psychotherapist and since starting my private practice I’ve helped thousands of people to overcome their own version of anxiety.
Now me and my team are here to offer you a hand of support and some finely tuned psychology strategies to get you back in control of your fear…and your life. It’s totally possible, even if you’ve suffered with anxiety for years and feel your situation is hopeless. Even if everything you’ve tried to date hasn’t worked, we’ll find a way to get you where you want to be.
I’m here to listen to your story.
