Welcome I’M SO GLAD YOU ARE HERE I’m a straight talking, experienced therapist who helps busy professionals overcome anxiety, overthinking and past negative experiences so that they can feel calmer happier and more in control. I’m on a mission to make sure anxiety, stress, overwhelm, stress and worry doesn’t interfere with your life, so you can get back to doing what you love, with the people that you love. So if you’re looking to understand why you feel like you do, stop feeling overwhelmed by negative emotions and find more joy in your life, or even just getting rid of that ‘nagging thing in the back of your mind’ then look no further. I’m here to help you learn the tools and techniques you need. WORK WITH ME > I work with a wide range of clients, many of whom appear to have it all. To the outside world anyway. They’re successful. They have loving friends and family around them. They generally feel like they’ve got loads to be grateful for. It looks like they have the perfect life. But, on the inside they’re struggling. Like they’re wearing a mask and hiding how they really feel. Because so often that ‘effortlessly together’ life that everyone sees isn’t always true. There’s a whole lot more going on underneath those apparently calm waters as they work hard to keep doing the things that they need to do and not burden those closest to them. Sound familiar? Then it’s time to stop pressing snooze on all the warning signs and start taking action. Because when we only hope that things will change, we won’t see long-term positives. There may be some better days, or good days. Sure. But until we work out how to break the cycle, they will always come back. And next time they might have an even greater impact on your life. LET'S CHANGE THAT > Life is too short TO CARRY ON WITH NEGATIVE PATTERNS, SO LET’S BREAK FREE WITH CLARITY AND FOCUS. There are so many things that can lead you to feeling anxious and stop you from being able to fully enjoy your life or your success. You might see the signs, like frustration, or a loss of belief and purpose, and be sitting there thinking ‘why can’t I just snap out of this?’ Well to be honest, it’s just not that simple. Trust me. You can’t just throw all the home remedies at it and hope something sticks. Or try all the latest fads that everyone’s out there recommending. What you need to do is understand what’s holding you back. And that’s where I come in. Because whether it’s something unresolved in your past, a difficult life change that you need to process, or a traumatic event there is always a way, and I’ll be there to guide you through it all. We’ll use a personalised combination of proven strategies and techniques, which includes a bit of humour by the way, so we might even be able to have a laugh along the way too. (I’m not joking!) It’s time to turn that ‘I can cope’ aura that you’re giving off every day, into actually coping, so you start to feel less guilty, and more confident. So you feel less on edge, and more in control, with a reframed, refreshed perspective of what you need to enjoy life again.

READ MORE > TESTIMONIALS Thank You. I had been working in a high pressure job just outside of London. At first I loved it, loved the busy days, loved the social side, loved the money and loved my life, I was lucky But, I slowly started to become stressed, burning the candle at both ends was taking its toll. I ignored it to begin with but the physical symptoms became so bad that I started to take time off work. I accidentally got pregnant but was so happy. I couldn’t wait for the baby and to start our new life. Unfortunately I lost the baby at 10 weeks and I was left devastated, around the same time my mum became sick and I felt so overwhelmed. I decided to leave my job, return home and stay with my family for a while. It was then that I found Natasha. I didn’t know what I needed or wanted, I just knew I needed some support. She was so caring and supportive and even made me laugh on our first session (in between the crying). I decided to have 12 weeks of CBT & coaching. We talked things though, mapped out what had gone wrong, decided what I wanted and how I wanted life to look and she supported me in starting my journey on the right path. I’m protective of my health and my mental health now and no longer feel guilty putting myself first. I know what a good, balanced life looks like for me and I’m closer to that now than I have ever been. I’ve gone from feeling washed up and a failure at only 37 to feeling like my life has just begun. Just WOW. When I came to see Natasha I’d been having counselling for quite some time. The counselling had been good in that it helped me start to understand how all of my childhood experiences had impacted upon me, why I tended to worry a lot of the time and why (even though I was outwardly successful) I didn’t ever really feel good enough. This new understanding was great but I didn’t really know what to do with it. I understood it all but it didn’t stop me feeling the same. I wanted some practical help to move me on to the next level from understanding to freeing myself from it’s hold. I opted for RTT and some CBT coaching sessions. All I can say is WOW. The RTT was so powerful and really helped me see how my parents had loved me but not really been able to show it at the time. I was able to forgive them, forgive myself and start to move on. I felt able to have an open and honest conversation with them for the first time and now our relationship is improving every day. We used our coaching / CBT sessions to focus on my worry and how to manage it. I did have to put in a lot of work and really challenge myself but I’m happy to say that I don’t worry half as much as I used to. I’m able to let my hair down a little bit and start to enjoy myself. If you have the chance to work with Natasha, just do it. It’s really had a positive impact on my life and I can’t recommend her enough. I am so happy that I came to see Natasha. It’s funny but I didn’t really ever identify with experiencing trauma. At times during my childhood my father was mentally unwell and I often had to go to live with my grandmother. I also witnessed quite a serious accident where a child died when I was just 9. I always thought trauma was for people who had been hurt deliberately or been in a car accident or something like that. Natasha helped me see that there doesn’t have to be blame in trauma and that people can be traumatised by accidents or by people that love them dearly. We are especially vulnerable as children. I initially just wanted help with panic attacks as the therapy I had with the NHS didn’t work for me. I didn’t link my panic with my past experiences at all. It seems obvious now but at the time I just didn’t make the connection. Natasha was kind and caring and she skilfully helped me link my past with my present. We saw each other for 12 sessions and used a number of different techniques. We did rapid transformational therapy, and CBT coaching. By the end my panic attacks had reduced significantly which was my original goal but also I feel so much lighter, so much more positive and so much happier. I didn’t realise all the weight I was carrying until Natasha helped me lift it off. I am so grateful for my time with Natasha and would urge anyone thinking of seeing her to at least book in one session.
