Anxiety and Depression

Anxiety and Depression

anxiety and attachment style

Anxiety can be related to your attachment style. Knowing how you relate in your interpersonal relationships, even if you’re in a healthy relationship, can be very helpful. When experiencing vulnerability and closeness you may feel fearful or anxious, or you might feel the need for constant reassurance, or feel afraid of abandonment. Anxiety is a symptom of an insecure or anxious attachment style, as well as low self-esteem.

Being aware of your attachment style can improve your relationships and your mental health.

By learning about your specific relationship style, you can learn to manage symptoms of anxious attachment style and discover coping skills, how to set boundaries, and understand negative emotions through therapy. You may have a different attachment style than your partner in a relationship, or with a colleagues or a friendship.  Becoming aware will help you to be mindful of how to navigate relationships. It might not be possible to solve, fix, or change other people’s attachment styles, but you can work on your own.


Depression can be an umbrella term for all depressive disorders but is often used in reference to major depression. Depression is a serious mood disorder identified by a persistent low mood and loss of interest in activities previously enjoyed. I can help you to explore your feelings to discover what you need to move forward.

When lightning strikes


Life events and change can adversely affect our mental health. For example, leaving home for further education; questioning identity; pregnancy; having a child with special needs; menopause; experiencing an empty nest; bereavement; redundancy; long-term health issues; anger; shame; and low self-esteem. If you feel like you have been struck down, are overwhelmed, or are struggling to make sense of what is happening to you, please call me. I provide a safe therapeutic space where you can explore and make sense of your issues, and work out what you would like to achieve. 

Positive Change

Therapy allows you to focus on prioritizing your goals and exploring your whole self rather than just specific problems. The aim of therapy is to help you grow, live your life to the full and be true to yourself. I offer empathy, warmth and genuineness as I work alongside, to help you make these changes.
