“This has had a huge impact on my life”
“After only a couple of sessions, Nicky was able to give me the tools to help change the way I think about situations and give me so much more confidence. This has had a huge impact on my life , and made me a much more positive person. I can’t thank Nicky enough for helping change my life for the better. When I arrived at the clinic for my first appointment I felt like I was a mess, but this quickly started to change, and after only a couple of visits I could see a huge difference in myself. Nicky is a lovely lady who is easy to talk to, honest and always supportive. Thank you Nicky x”.
What is Anxiety?
Anxiety is a fear of the unknown. Anxiety is a part of ours body’s natural defences , a reaction to feeling under threat , commonly known as the “fight of flight ” response . The brain and body are often caught up in feelings of tension , apprehension that keeps the mind locked into a circle of worry.
