About Me

Welcome. I’m Natasha and  I help people who struggle with anxiety, stress burnout and  trauma.

You have a good life and lots going for you. You have supportive family and friends, but anxiety, worries and overthinking are holding you back from fully enjoying them. You want to be able to say yes to opportunities that arise, knowing that anxiety isn’t going to hold you back. Perhaps you have been putting off seeking help hoping that your problems will get better on their own or you might have been trying to manage it yourself for too long. If this sounds like you and you’ve found yourself fighting a battle with your own mind get in touch.

As a fully accredited Cognitive Behavioural Therapist (CBT) & Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprogramming (EMDR) therapist and having worked in the field of mental health for over 15 years I have helped many people struggling with similar issues. Always with one eye on providing some immediate relief and the other on addressing deeper issues togther we can get to a place where anxiety isn’t running things.

 

My Qualifications

My Experience

Natasha is an internationally recognised therapist, speaker and author.

She began her career as a mental health nurse in 2003 working with the most challenging patients in the country in a high secure hospital in the north of England. She went on to train as a psychotherapist in 2011 helping hundreds of people manage anxiety, depression, stress and burnout. Fascinated by the impact trauma had on our brains she undertook a masters degree in psychological trauma, training under the world recognised Professor Stephen Jones, and going on to receive a distinction for her dissertation.  This led to her working with survivors of some of the most extreme forms of trauma including torture, sexual abuse and war crimes at the UK centre for trauma resilience and growth. Mentored by world renowned trauma expert Professor Stephen Regel OBE.

Keen to explore different types of therapy Natasha trained with  Michael Patterson OBE in a leading new therapy Eye Movement De-sensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR).

Natasha now works in private practice seeing successful, ambitious professionals who feel as though they are hiding their struggles behind a mask.

 

My Approach

Commonly worked with issues:

Some types of difficulties I commonly work with: OCD, health anxiety, social anxiety & shyness, panic, excessive worries, anxiety as a result of life changes, study and exam based anxiety, workplace anxiety & past trauma

If the idea of a practical based therapy appeals to you and you’re ready to make changes get in touch for a trial consultation.

 

What is CBT?

Cognitive behavioural therapies, or CBT, are a range of talking therapies based on the theory that thoughts, feelings, what we do and how our body feels are all connected. If we change one of these we can alter the others.

When people feel worried or distressed we often fall into patterns of thinking and responding which can worsen how we feel. CBT works to help us notice and change problematic thinking styles or behaviour patterns so we can feel better. CBT has lots of strategies that can help you in the here and now.

 

Here’s why I should be helping you.

I have over 15 years experience in the health and behavioural change industry.

I’m a fully qualified and accredited psychotherapist  as well as an EMDR therapiost, hypnotherapist and coach.

I’ve helped hundreds of people like you overcome emotional difficulties.

I understand the specific needs of people who are successful and or in the public eye.

I have masters level qualifications in mental health, psychotherapy and psychological trauma.

I’m regularly invited to appear as an expert speaker on leading podcast shows. You may have heard me on the inspiring mummy club podcast, on the fabulous life, mind biz show with Lauren Smith or with the Smart Girl Tribe.

I am regularly cited as a psychology and mental health expect in numerous magazines and newspapers. You may have recently seen me in Mental Health magazine talking about ITV’s “Get Britain talking” campaign.

I understand, first hand some of the difficulties you are facing. I’ve used these techniques to  help hundreds of people heal and I know that you can to.
