Anxiety Transformation Program

Custom-built Anxiety Therapy Program for CEOs, Senior Management & Entrepreneurs

Anxiety Therapy is a journey, and not an easy one. I offer empathy, deep understanding of your journey and support when and where needed. Yes, we have objectives to meet; but at all times we remember this is an emotional journey and we need to take our own time to successfully get there.

Who is the Program for?

Intensive, or ‘Rapid’ Anxiety Therapy Program had been developed for busy clients from corporate environments, mainly Senior Management (Directors, CEOs, Entrepreneurs). This type of client will be used to rapid learning, training and development and thus respond well to ‘Intensive’ therapy.  The structure and program format is adjusted to each individual client- the program itinerary below contains generic information only. I’m there to support you when and where you need me during the program- and yes, that includes any work situations you may be facing.

Do I Need Therapy?

There is a massive pressure in Corporate Environments, whether you’re employed or running your own business. Anxiety is very common in those environments and affects 1 in 2 people. I call this ‘Professional Anxiety’. You may find it spreads into personal areas as well, like a virus. In critical situations, you may experience negative physical symptoms (sweating, shaking, throwing up, endless trips to the bathroom), psychological symptoms (headache, mind ‘racing’, thoughts ‘distorted’ and emotions all over the place- we call this a ‘hijacked brain’). Behaviours automatically follow: Avoidance, Escape, Making excuses as to why you can’t do something, Withdrawal.

If you find yourself:

  • Fearing situations you have tolerated before (meetings, delivering presentations etc);

  • Using ‘Safety Behaviours’ to cope with your Anxiety (endless trips to the bathroom, excuses not to do something etc);

  • Escaping anxious situations;

  • Avoiding them altogether;

  • Experiencing regular unpleasant physical/ psychological anxiety symptoms and even an occasional panic attack;

  • Fearing you may lose your job/business as a result of your Anxiety,

‘I would not hesitate to recommend Ivana to anyone who is looking for help.

Quite simply she is excellent.

From the moment you meet Ivana, you know you are dealing with someone at the top of the industry.

She has a wonderful style that makes you feel at ease straight away and she explains clearly how she can help you which gives you immediate confidence that there is light at the end of the dark tunnel you are probably in.

I was in that dark dark tunnel having reached the end of a very stressful senior executive role – CEO of a global enterprise for over a decade – and needed a lot of help.

Ivana was amazing and did not hesitate to go the extra mile in helping me overcome my challenges.

The light is now back on on in my tunnel and I have the tools I need to deal with any situation.

Don’t hesitate to go and meet Ivana – she is world class and she will help you switch your light back on and deal with your challenges.’

Paul S., Cobra Group

‘Ivana is a complete breath of fresh air. Understanding where you want to go, then creating the path to tread along sounds simple, but is complex and a series of issues, complicated by the fact they are all tied up together. Ivana unravels them. I have had many coaches in my business and personal career, I can honestly say that Ivana is one of the very best. Her ability to focus upon the core issues, map out sensible road maps and work on any blockages with a practical methodology is second to none. Her totally professional approach and commitment to the cause makes one feel very supported. She has a special talent to understand what is happening under the surface. I have no hesitation to recommend Ivana most highly.’

Robin S., CEO of Cornflake

‘We have had major issues in our marriage when we first contacted Ivana. In a relatively short period of time (2 months), she had worked with us on restoring balance in our marriage, love for each other and harmony. We are now so happy. She works in pleasant environment and will go to great lengths to help clients. Highly recommended.’

Maria & Karol, Business Owners

‘Ivana is a true professional within the coaching and counselling industry. We have worked with her now for around 3 years and she has provided relationship coaching to a huge number of our clients in that time. The feedback from whom has always been very positive. We are proud to have Ivana working on our team.’

Mike P., Dating Options Ltd

‘Initially I contacted Ivana with the view to boost my confidence so that I can find a new partner . As I have had so much baggage from my previous marriage, the first few sessions were spent on ‘clearing the mess out’ which was a real life-changer. As time went on and my confidence grew, we delved into what I really wanted to do and I realised my passion was to open a new business of my dreams and NOT to find a partner as I originally thought. I was being pressured into it by my parents. Ivana brought in the clarity and understanding of what I really wanted in my life, taught me how to put myself first without hurting others and how to develop an adult-to-adult relationships to help launch my new business. Fantastic experience.’

Arun B., Hotel Chain Owner

‘My confidence was at an all-time low when I decided to ask Ivana for help. It mainly affected my guitar performances and approaching potential new dates. I started noticing the difference after 2 sessions- I was able to recognise how my own beliefs held me back. I have had 6 sessions with Coach Ivana and it gave my a whole new perspective on life. I couldn’t ask for a better professional.’

John C., Executive

‘Ivana provided me with some coaching and advice earlier this year, especially when I was thinking about a number of choices and options in my career and personal life. She was highly professional, methodical and approachable – and helped me bring real clarity to my thinking, giving me more confidence in what I needed to do. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Ivana’

Ed D., Wealth Management

‘As an Employment Support Officer on the Love London Working programme, I help those from vulnerable groups in their pursuit for work. Recently, Ivana provided some one-to-one CBT at the Lido Centre in Ealing, which proved very beneficial to those clients that she saw. Due to the feedback from my clients and the professional and empathetic manner in which Ivana approached her work, I’m planning further support sessions for my clients with Ivana, to increase their chances of securing sustainable employment.’
