Social Anxiety Therapist near me

Social Anxiety Therapist near meLooking for a Social Anxiety Therapist near me? I am Gillian Wingard. For 25 years I worked in the fast-paced, continually-changing corporate world of sales and recruitment as a senior manager. I witnessed first-hand how stress and anxiety in such a pressure-cooker environment affects people at all levels. That’s why I started Behavioural Freedom.

I practise at Verulam Clinic, St Albans and in Borehamwood.

That notwithstanding, I have also struggled personally with workplace stress and anxiety, how it feels and how to effectively treat it and my life experiences make me the perfect person to work with you to relieve whatever issues are stopping you from living a full, happy and worry-free life.

I studied Hypnotherapy and specifically Hypno-CBT, the combined use of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Hypnosis at the UK College of Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy and the course is centred fundamentally on modern psychological approaches.

It is one of the leading courses of its kind in the UK and was developed by Donald Robertson, a highly-acclaimed and respected writer, therapist and trainer and author of The Philosophy of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (2010), The Practice of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (2012) and Build Your Resilience (2012).

By using such an effective and proven combination of therapies, Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy (CBH) is widely believed to be the treatment of choice for a growing number of conditions treated on the NHS over the next five years.

Social Anxiety

Social anxiety is far more common than we might think and most of us have suffered from social anxiety in one form or another during our lives. It manifests itself as a fear of rejection or being judged or embarrassed in front of other people. It leads to avoidance behaviour and can have a disruptive, negative effect on how you live your life, including but not exclusively –

  • Meeting new people
  • Giving presentations
  • Speaking to authority figures
  • Shopping
  • Eating out
  • Rejection

At Behavioural Freedom, I will free you from the unwanted behaviours that prohibit you from living the life you want to live. I will free you from the uncomfortable, negative and often debilitating feelings of anxiety that control you and allow you to focus on moving forward with positivity, a fresh outlook on life and the knowledge that you can do anything you put your mind to.

You will feel calmer, more in control of your life and more confident.

‘Anxiety disorders’ is a collective term for the range of issues I treat. It’s important to know that there are no ‘off the shelf’ packages. Each client has specific and unique issues and your sessions are tailored around YOU and you only.
