Anxiety and Depression

Anxiety and depression are major health issues in our today’s high pressure world – and our diets and environments have a big role to play as well as the thoughts we think, our neurobiology and our past life experiences.

My approach

Anxiety and depression have multiple causes – and so a whole-person approach is essential. These “emotional” challenges aren’t just in your mind – they can also be exacerbated by other health issues.

I treat you as an individual – and also help you see the health traps of the systems you’re part of.
