The therapy with Reena was very helpful. The tasks she gave me were extremely useful in helping me to apply the theory we had talked about to my own life. It made me reassess how I thought about situations and reinforced the challenges that Reena had made to my assumptions (which were often unrealistic)

They thought you were a superb speaker, engaging and really made it ‘human’ and understandable and you were so engaging and warm. Thank you!
Dr Shah and I developed a rapport very quickly. I felt she understood my feelings and where they came from, she tailored my therapy accordingly and even utilised my skills to get the best out of me. I had anxiety around the issue of ‘I shouldn’t need therapy’ but Dr Shah empowered me to take control of those feelings.
Since my therapy I feel much better than I ever thought I would, and it’s having a huge effect on my quality of life. I now have very little anxiety surrounding my condition and my self esteem has greatly improved. Reena challenged my negative assumptions, helped me to understand their impact and gave me the tools I need to change them. She also helped me with my intimate and family relationships. I feel in control. I feel like myself.
She made me feel like a real person who had a need for which she could provide a solution, all whilst genuinely caring for me at the same time.
