Anna has been my therapist for more than 2 years and has been an immense and irreplaceable positive impact on my life.
At the beginning of our sessions i suffered from anxiety, depression, addiction to anxiolytics and dependence on alcohol, and was also in a physically and emotionally abusive relationship.
With her professional, wise and kind guidance, i can proudly say i am now free of all of the above mentioned problems (including the awful relationship!).
Anna is not only an empathic and knowledgeable mental help professional, but has also become an incredible female rolemodel to me.
I will always remain grateful to her for all of her hard work in helping me become a better version of myself, for her timeous responses to urgent messages and flexibility, for going above and beyond as a therapist by making suggestions to help me with problems discussed during our sessions, and her dependable and enlightening presence in my personal journey.
