The moment when you think your life’s going to pieces

(And exactly what you can do to fix it without NHS waiting lists and anti-depressants)

See if this sounds familiar…

It’s the school run.
You drop your kids off at the gate and then rush off; can’t risk awkward small talk with the mums.
Then the weekend comes.

A friend’s 40th.
You haven’t been out in ages, but you feel like you won’t add much value.
Also, whatsername’s there and she makes you feel on edge.
You text to say your kid has just come down with something.
Night in front of the box it is.

You’re at work.
You’ve been given a big project and you’re bricking it.
“What if I mess it up? What if they find me out to be fraud?” you tell yourself.
You pass the project back. Just easier that way. Someone better can do it.

You’re in bed with your husband.
He seems distant.
You think the worst.
“Omg he’s going off me. Is he seeing someone else? I’m not good enough for him anymore”
So, you give him the cold shoulder back. He asks:
“What’s wrong with you?”
“Exactly. What IS wrong with me?” you reply.

Cos, to everyone else you have the perfect life. The job. The kids. The husband. The house. The friends.
And heaven forbid you burst peoples’ bubble of what they think of you.

But, there’s just this niggling feeling that it’s all not enough. Like there’s something missing.
You lose excitement for things.
Worry that something dreadful is around the corner. Not just once though, all the time.

You wonder: “Is this normal?” then freak out at the idea you could be depressed.
You don’t want to take pills, though.
You say: “Is there a cure to make someone happy again?” I say:
Of course, there’s a cure to make yourself happy.

So, exactly what is this cure, this fix-it solution? The way I help people with a problem is very different to a therapist or a counsellor because I’m trained to do much more than just listen.


Where seeing a Counsellor or Therapist gives you someone to talk to, seeing a Psychologist
gives you someone qualified to truly understand your feelings, AS WELL as giving you
practical methods on how to overcome what’s troubling you. It’s based on science and what
has been evidence based to be most effective. Whilst being listened to can be really useful,

I’m guessing that solving problems is what you really need?

Becky Sheeran

Beauty, lifestyle and fashion blogging sensation Becky Sheeran (TalkBeckyTalk)

It’s great to have a leading psychotherapist such as Wendy in the Cheshire area, outside of her Harley Street practice. After publicly raising awareness of mental health issues and myself recovering from depression, I know how immensely life-changing expert intervention can be.

Jason Jarrett

Retired ex-professional football who played for Bury, Wigan, Stoke, Preston, Norwich, Leicester and Brighton during a 14 year career. After leaving professional football, Jason battled depression and recovered with the help of therapy and family support.

Wendy is great at what she does; she made me feel at ease immediately and really helped me work through some issues.

Tara Costello

It’s funny but from the minute I met her I felt so relaxed and she was so easy to talk to. Thank you!

Stevie Brown

Wendy isn’t only really good at what she does, she’s also really easy to talk to.

Gabriel Wilson

I want to thank you Wendy from the bottom of my heart for guiding me through what must have been the most difficult time of my life.

Raza Syed

I was told she was the best and they were right.

Noelle Dray

Although I consider myself a confident person, I was really nervous when I met Wendy for the first time. I had only emailed her before so it was really nerve wracking walking up the stairs to her office. I can honestly say it’s one of the best things I have ever done. Wendy is really normal, no in fact she isn’t normal as she is unfailingly bright and smiley even when she has to listen to me moan on about how awful my life was. It feels like having a chat with somebody who just gets you and you can trust with things you have never trusted anybody else with before. The magic bit comes when things you have talked about just pop up into your head and you start to do things differently. Wendy once joked about not having a magic wand, but I think she has.

Paul Hendry

I came to Wendy with a set of problems I have never been able to fully explain to anyone, which included grief, many family issues and alcohol problems. Wendy truly has an active listening style and absorbs everything you are saying, whilst not making you feel analysed, it is an incredible skill. She astounded me at how she got to the crux of the issues so fast. So much so that we both agreed I only needed one session with her, obviously this may not be the case with everyone but I would confidently recommend her to anyone, regardless of your problems. There was no awkwardness or even clock watching, she is wonderful at what she does, take the plunge and make an appointment, you will not regret it. Life is a direction not a destination and she will get you on the path again.
