Anxiety is a feeling of unease, such as worry or fear that can be mild or severe. Most of us experience anxiety at some point in our life such as doing a presentation in work, college or school, having a medical procedure, a fight with friends or a job interview. When we experience anxiety in these situations it can be completely normal, and we can go about our day as soon as it passes. However, some people find it difficult to control their worries and concerns which can then impact how they function in their daily lives.
Anxiety can present itself in various ways such as overthinking, avoidance, stomach pains, trouble breathing, increased heart rate, worry, procrastination to name but a few. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is an evidence-based approach that is proven to treat anxiety disorders.

What clients are saying
“As soon as I met Maria, I felt relaxed and understood. Each session was open and honest and completely judgement free. Even through the difficult topics, we managed to have laughs. CBT has completely improved my life in all aspects, and my friends and family have noticed it. I started CBT with Maria at a time when I needed help to work on myself, but during that time, my mum passed away. Maria went above and beyond to help me through that extremely difficult time. I would recommend everyone to do CBT, but I would most definitely recommend they do CBT with Maria for the best results.“
“I learned a lot with Maria in my first experience with clinical supervision. Very reassuring to have such professional and competent support. Highly recommended.“
