Dr. Anene has been a gift on my journey. She has been great at getting to the heart of what matters in ways as practical as they are compassionate. Trust was established easily and that has made is easy for me to open up and explore. I am truly grateful for her expertise, experience and empathy.

Dr. Anene or Nkem is amazing! She is easy to talk to and takes her own approach to therapy that I appreciate. It’s hard to put in words just how much I got out of our sessions, but I do know that after every session I left felling encouraged. Thank you so much Nkem, you are much appreciated!

2 sessions (60 minutes each) into the counselling, I am glad to be working with Dr. Anene. I feel I have communicated my needs and goals from this therapy clearly and we are working our way to understand them and my challenges are being laid more clearly with Dr. Anene. It is a work in progress and I have started the needed work to improve my communication skills with Dr. Anene's guidance. I will love to make further progress and share my review later again on our journey.
Thank you Dr. Anene for being my therapist,
patiently listening to me,
helping me identify and work on my goals.

Amazing therapist! She got me in a really low moment in my life where I was feeling quite lost. She’s helped me find my power and my confidence back.

Wonderful woman, listens to everything and response is really informative. You can tell she hears you and reassures you when you’re on the right track, no matter the doubts that come to your head.
