Never before has the pursuit of happiness been so in our face. Social media, friends, family – all talking about ‘doing more of what makes you happy’. But if you are not happy, you are not alone. Perhaps you feel there is never enough time in the day to do everything you need to do, making you stressed out. Perhaps you don’t even know what would make you happy.

Being the best version of yourself, your compassionate best, is not about being perfect. It is about being you, but on a really good day. We’ll teach you techniques that help you feel balanced. Balancing time for achievements with time for rest and recovery. Balancing what you do for others with what you do for yourself. Balancing work with life. It means working smarter, not harder.

Challenges you might be facing

Excessive worry

Depression

Stress

Panic anxiety

Social anxiety

OCD

Low self-esteem

Perfectionism

Excessive worry

You worry about everything going wrong

Worrying about things is completely normal. But if our minds are constantly focusing on “what if…” scenarios, it will leave us feeling exhausted, stressed and tense. It can make it difficult to focus at work, and we might have rows with family who don’t share our concerns.

We provide treatment for excessive worry and/or generalised anxiety. We can help you find your focus again, making it easier for you to solve problems and get on with your life.

 

Depression

You feel down and that life is no longer fulfilling

We all have times where we feel really low. This can be really unsettling, even if it isn’t technically “clinical depression”. We can feel like we have lost our direction and meaning, that things feel hopeless and will never change. We start being too hard on ourselves about when we make mistakes and this self criticism can completely deflate us.

Through depression treatment, we can help you feel that life is worth living again. We’ll find out what is important to you and help you rediscover the things you used to be passionate about.

Stress

You feel like you are about to break under the pressure

We all experience stress from time to time, and when we’re feeling in control of it, stress can even help us perform better. But when stress is preventing us from enjoying our life, then the pressure can even cause illness.

Through stress treatment, we can help you find your balance so that you can thrive and feel in control of your life again.

Panic anxiety

You feel so anxious it feels like you are about to faint or die

Everyone experiences anxiety from time to time, it is just built into our survival mechanisms. But when that anxiety or fear of the next panic attack gets overwhelming or stops you from enjoying a rich life, you may need help tackling panic anxiety.

We can help you work with the fear of the fear, about that worry about the next panic attack, and help you start to broaden your comfort zone again.

Social anxiety

You worry about what others think of you

Everyone worries about making a fool out of themselves and we’ve had times when we’ve said or done the wrong thing. But when that fear or embarrassment gets overwhelming or stops you from enjoying a rich life, you may need help tackling social anxiety.

We can help you work with your worries about how other people see you, to help you fully enjoy connecting with others and avoid anxiety about social situations like parties, job interviews or dating.

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder

You feel bad about causing harm or being responsible for something terrible 

Most people worry at times about how their actions affect others. The intrusive thoughts and compulsions of OCD can be very debilitating and is so much more than occasionally checking you have locked the door. If you find yourself being limited by the amount of time or energy you spend on running through scenarios in your head or checking that you have not forgotten to do something, you might need help.

We can help you work with your obsessive thoughts and compulsive behaviours, to help you lead a rich life again.

 

Low self-esteem

You feel like you’re never good enough

We all make mistakes sometimes, and might feel bad about who we are if we get criticised. But if you struggle to like or accept yourself when others don’t, you might need some help with your self-esteem.

We can help you build the confidence to step out of your comfort zone in reaching your goals, finding a relationship or going for a promotion at work, feeling okay with who you are.

Perfectionism

If it’s not perfect, you feel like you have failed

Striving for high standards or excellence is not a bad thing. But when we go after those standards even when it makes the rest of our life suffer, then we have a problem with perfectionism.

Our perfectionism therapy can help you dare to make mistakes and use failures as a way to grow and strive for excellence.
