"Dr Anna Collins delivered an excellent session on managing automatic responses to situations. During the session she reinforced earlier sessions to consolidate previous learning. I felt the whole group was fully engaged throughout, both with Dr Collins and the other group attendees and it is exactly what you strive to achieve. I found Dr Collins extremely professional, flexible and warm, and felt she had created a positive environment for all attendees to maximise their session and post session objectives."

“After suffering with severe insomnia for years, things had reached desperation point - I booked to see Dr Collins and within a few sessions she had given me enough techniques and advice which enabled me to finally get the sleep I needed. I’ve since seen huge improvements in my sleep patterns and am now managing a regular good nights sleep - can’t recommend enough!”

Client suffering from anxiety who experienced a bereavement midway through treatment.
"Having experienced a combination of depression and anxiety, I was referred to Dr Collins by my psychiatrist for Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. I was initially sceptical that CBT would be of help to me, but quickly realised that the therapy was exactly what I needed to help to fix my problems. Dr Collins is approachable, trustworthy and very easy to work with and her therapy is very well structured and easy to comprehend. Working with her and using her clearly defined pathways made it possible for us to target the source(s) of my problems and develop suitable coping strategies to enable me to control and negate the issues which led to my problems. Now, a couple of months down the line, I am back to my normal self, with an optimistic outlook and untroubled by the irrational anxiety which was ruling my life. I can unreservedly recommend Dr Collins and her skills in CBT.”
