Reclaim your life

I help people to reclaim their lives from their past and discover their confident, less anxious selves.

Do you struggle with overthinking, anxiety or low self-esteem? Or have you been through trauma (such as a sexual assault or childhood abuse) and feel ready to work on the effects of these experiences?

I can help you understand how your past has shaped your responses and self-worth, so you can confidently pursue the things in life that you wish for: balanced relationships, a fulfilling job and sense of resilience.

with support from an expert

You don’t have to do this on your own anymore

Your emotional difficulties make sense.  They  have developed as a way of coping with life circumstances.

You don’t need to feel guilty or defective for this. 


I can show how you got trapped here. Your past has created a set of responses which kept you safe then but may be getting in the way of things for you now. I can help you master the tools you need to overcome your difficulties and move towards your hopes and dreams.

Start with this quick quiz to find out what kind of self-critic is most dominant in your life.

Hi, I’m Dr Claire Plumbly,
an experienced Clinical Psychologist

I specialise in evidence-based therapies for anxieties, particularly where they stem from a form of trauma.  These include

Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), EMDR, Compassionate Mind Therapy and more..


"I have found the EMDR sessions life changing. I was really stuck on a traumatic event from my past but with Claire’s support and guidance we have worked through this. I am far more resilient, I am managing my own anxieties and no longer fear my past experiences."
