Ivana Franekova- Cognitive Behavioural Therapist, Life Coach & Corporate And Executive Coach With Over 16 Years Of Experience

Face-To-Face Sessions; Skype – Online; Your Own Location

Thank you for visiting my website. I am an experienced Cognitive Behavioural Therapist, Life Coach and Corporate/ Executive Coach. My main practices are located in The City Of London, United Kingdom and Stanmore, Greater London; I work via Skype if you’re not local to London and I travel to clients all over the world.

I set up ‘Anxiety Curse Ltd’ to help Individuals and Small/ Medium companies manage mental health, such as stress, anxiety and depression. These problems are very common, due to fast-paced lives, pressures, responsibilities and expectations we put on ourselves.

 We all feel Anxiety on some level in our daily lives. Healthy levels of Anxiety are beneficial to us; it drives us forward, it motivates us, it gives us that ‘buzz’ we need to get through the tricky situations. Our brain can not distinguish between Good and Bad Anxiety; it is the meaning, or the view, we take of the situations that determines how we are going to feel. So you see, if you think of an event as ‘happy’ (wedding, birth of a child), you feel good anxiety; if you think delivering a work presentation will be a catastrophe, you will experience bad, or unhealthy, Anxiety. It’s all in our minds!

You may think about coming to therapy when your Anxiety is no longer healthy and under control. If you’ve had bad anxiety over a number of years, left untreated, you may be experiencing ‘Chronic Anxiety’. There are many types of Anxiety, but I will simply put it into two categories: Work-Related Anxiety and Personal Anxiety. With both, you may be experiencing negative physical symptoms (sweaty hands, headache, feeling sick or throwing up, heart racing, difficulty breathing) and psychological symptoms (distorted thoughts, inability to think clearly, emotions jumbled up). Negative behaviours automatically follow: Escape, Avoidance, Withdrawal, Procrastination at work- a downward Anxiety spiral.

My treatment methods combine Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Coaching as I feel these two types of interventions work well together. I offer Programs, Workshops and Retreats as well as regular one-to-one sessions.

I have had my advice published in a number of magazine, including Pick Me Up, Women & Health, Cosmopolitan, Marie Claire, Metro, The Sybarite:
