Unhealthy Anxiety can lead to excessive stress, endless worrying, inability to sleep, lack of self-esteem and much more.

Hi, I’m Ivana, an Anxiety Therapist and Coach.

Benefits Of CBT Therapy For Anxiety:

The key idea behind CBT Therapy is that what we think (cognitive) and what we do (behavioural) impacts the way we feel.

When your Anxiety is out of control, it may feel like you are stuck in a vicious circle you can’t get out of. Worrying, stress, feeling sick- but it doesn’t need to be this way.

CBT tools and techniques break that vicious cycle and introduce you to new ways of managing anxious situations.

Frequently Asked Questions:

What types of Anxiety do you help with?2021-10-31T06:39:46+00:00

I specialize in Social Anxiety and GAD (General Anxiety Disorder), which may feel like you’re unable to stop worrying.

Anxiety issues affect many other personal and professional areas of our lives: be it low self-confidence, inability to act in an assertive manner, fear of things/ situations that stop us from living life to full.

During therapy & coaching, we look at ALL affected areas to give you, in effect, ‘your life back’.

Can you really help me?2021-07-18T07:24:15+01:00

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is a number 1 Mental Health therapy recommended by GP’s in the UK (please check with your doctor/ general practitioner if you’re contacting me from abroad), so you’re in good hands.

In addition, my extensive Life Coaching, Corporate/ Executive Coaching background and Mindfulness expertise gives you a range of options to suit your individual style and find what truly works for you.

The success of your Anxiety Recovery depends on our mutual collaboration: I provide tools, techniques and a healing space for you to achieve your goals. CBT Therapy is a skill-based therapy, so your progress will depend on how much you practice and implement these new skills into your life.

‘I want to thank Ivana for the support she gave me over the sessions I had with her. I’ve come away with a box of tools that I feel confident to use and they are already becoming a good habit. It is really amazing how much you can figure out with guidance, support and the right people to show you how. I love the tips and tricks I’ve learnt from Ivana, in addition to some of the deeper work we did in managing anxiety. A really good spend of my time, and I’d recommend Ivana to anyone who is committed to rolling up your sleeves and doing the work to understand more about yourself.’
