"I guess it goes without saying that Joanne is a great listener and quickly tuned in to my issues and in particular helped me to recognise where I needed to change my mind-set. She was helpful in pointing me toward mechanisms for dealing with concerns that had become exaggerated in my thinking. Joanne cleverly structured our sessions to draw out various aspects of my anxieties and through that enabled me to arrive at a more logical and positive view of my experiences of the last eighteen months. I found her easy to talk to, even on the subjects I had found difficulty in properly facing on my own. Importantly, she was constructive, supportive and showed me a path to thinking more clearly about a challenging phase of my life."

Thoughts on Mental Health

You could develop a phobia about anything - driving, water, tomatoes - you name it, there will be someone in the world that has developed a fear of it. There are some theories that suggest that some phobias are innate (i.e. you are born with them) - for example, a fear of snakes. Generally, however, phobias develop following on from a highly unpleasant experience involving a specific object or situation and heightened anxiety accompanying this. Anxiety is your brain's way of telling you to 'be aware' or that there is danger present. The next time you think of or encounter the object or situation, your brain remembers the unpleasant previous experience and you feel anxiety once more.
