Taking back control

For some people, there may be a specific issue, that holds them back and don’t allow them to thrive. For others, there may be challenging life situations that they feel they can’t cope with or emotionally deal with in an effective way and for others, there may just be an underlying feeling that they could be happier, but for some reason, unknown to them, they can’t seem to connect with that happiness or wellbeing.



I have detailed some of the more common areas that I work with, which can be found under the Symptoms Treated tab.


They are:

Anxiety & Phobias

Social Anxiety & Low Self Esteem

Panic Attacks

Low mood

Coping with overwhelming life situations

Dealing effectively with change

Exam stress


Please see my individual symptom pages for more information from the drop down menu bar at the top.

“I feel much better now and I already started to see some changes on how I deal with people around me, whether it’s my friends or colleagues… I’m more relaxed too. I’m getting ready to go out and meet old friends I haven’t seen in a while so that’s good news. I don’t feel anxiety like I did a few weeks ago.”


” I left our session feeling tremendously positive about my future, and more able to cope with events that life may throw at me”.

Having suffered with panic attacks for a number of years, my fear of escalators was starting to impact my everyday life, whether going shopping, travelling or meeting friends…  at the end of my session with Shirley to my astonishment I went home on the underground, since then I have been using every opportunity to try it out but the panic attacks have completely gone, my outlook on life is changing daily and I feel I can tackle anything….  I am now controlling my life and the panic attacks are not controlling me!!”  


“I found our session to be very beneficial in lots of ways, I understand so much more about myself and the reasons why I think in certain ways. I feel a lot more in control of what happens, it all depends on me taking responsibility and pushing things forward.”
