Anxiety (including social anxiety, lots of worrying, phobias, fears, heart palpitations, sweating, compulsions, and unhelpful thinking) can make you feel incredibly constricted. Almost like you can't breathe. It can fill you up with dread and a longing for things to feel completely different from how they are right now.
Maybe you've been living with this anxiety for a long while. Or maybe you've tried meditating and deep breathing exercises. Practiced yoga. Gone for long walks. But it's still there! One thing is for sure, you know this anxiety isn't serving you and you want it gone.
If you're like any of my clients when they first see me, they are at a loss. Their mind is keeping them from experiencing the joy that this world has to offer. And this really sucks. I get it. I see it almost every day and it's a whole lot to take on by yourself. Thankfully, there's an easy solution.
Many people think they have to just 'live' with anxiety, or take daily medication for some relief. But just like your brain gave you anxiety, it can choose to let it go.
But anxiety doesn't go away by itself.
Using a unique therapeutic and coaching perspective I can help you find inner peace and freedom.
And when that happens, you'll be able to:
experience who you really are (anxiety is keeping your real self tucked away)
receive the goodness that's available in this world
experience joy without a side of worry and dread.
I've helped over 1000 people just like you. You're here reading this, which means part of you knows you're ready to take your next steps towards living your ideal life, free from anxiety.
I invite you to connect with me via a complimentary 15-minute meet and greet session, where I can answer any questions you may have and we'll make sure that we're a great fit for each other before moving into the therapeutic process.

Whom will I be working with?
I'm Alexandra Whitehead. With over 13 years of therapy, counseling, and coaching experience I can help you with your anxiety. I'm also a career coach, leadership coach, entrepreneur, and 3x business owner.
A bit about me personally...
I'm also a mum to a sweet and assertive four-year-old. I travel the world (I know...such a Xennial statement). I like yoga, the beach, the mountains. I'm a below-average surfer and above-average snowboarder. The latest course I've taken was on Shamanic Journeying and hypnotherapy and while I like data, I'm spiritual by nature.
I'm telling you this because the rapport that you and I develop is the biggest predictor of your success. It's a working relationship.
So I encourage you to look around, contact a couple of helping professionals and choose the one that you resonate with the most. This is incredibly important.
In addition, I also have a Master of Business Administration (MBA), Post-Graduate Diploma of Psychology, Bachelor of Science in Psychology.
Having worked in five countries I have a unique perspective that helps to fast track progress with my clients. To date, I've helped over 1000 people find more meaning in life and make better, sometimes life-changing decisions, that can lead to more freedom and happiness.
What can I expect?
Feeling uncertain about your future, and wondering when or how things are going to change can be a bit anxiety-provoking. And that's the best-case scenario. At worst, this looks like sabotaging relationships at work and home and losing interest in activities you're previously loved engaging in. If this is you, breathe, and know that support is literally a click away.
Actively engaging in the therapeutic and coaching process is an experiential journey. You're able to change your life, your attitudes, your beliefs about yourself and others. You're able to find freedom and joy - while not being reliant on others to provide this for you. I can't wait to help you.
All services are provided online, via Zoom video. This means you have more flexibility with consultation times and days. See me before work, during your lunch break, or even on your weekend if that floats your boat. Just choose a time that suits you best. I prefer to see you at the same time and day each week where possible, to ensure you get results.
And if you need to contact me, you can email me directly by using the contact form.
Who is this for?
If you rather be a high-vibed person but find that instead, you feel suffocated with anxiety, then I'm your anxiety therapist and anxiety coach.
You might feel a bit scared about making this move to seek unique, professional guidance and so you should. Your life is about to change for the better and the possibilities that are available to you can be exciting - which can look like anxiety! I got your back, okay?
Who is this not for?
Nothing changes unless you do. So, if you're still in the blame game and not ready to own your own stuff, or if you're just looking for someone to listen to your problems for 50 minutes every week, I'm not your gal. If you're unsure, you can email me, explain a little bit about what you're experiencing and I'll tell your straight up if I can or cannot help you.
Despite how awesome it would be, I don't have a magic wand to make your problems disappear immediately. Most people see me for a minimum of six sessions and do a considerable amount of internal work to reach their goals.
You're ready for this. That's why you read all the way to the bottom of this page. I hope I'll be seeing you soon.
