Creating problems with your own thinking

Are you looking for problems?

Thoughts are plans to the mind so be careful what you’re focusing on. Anxiety is the obsession of looking for problems that aren’t there.

That could be:
. Health
. Work
. Relationships

It then becomes a conditioned response. If it isn’t fixed quick it causes devastating effects to the person and the person’s life.

If you can relate to the above give me a call and we can fix it before it gets any worse.

Warm regards


Disappointed by counselling or CBT?

They often wait a long time for an appointment and leave feeling more frustrated. They’re not alone. Approximately 90% of my clients have been through counselling and CBT and found it didn’t help or in some cases made them feel worse. So if you’re disappointed by counselling or CBT you are not alone.
