"I started seeing Cecilia about 7 weeks ago now and the improvement with my anxiety and understanding of my anxiety has completely changed! She was so welcoming and made me feel comfortable instantly. I was suffering extremely with panic attacks and we worked through understanding how panic attacks happens and ways to think in a different way to have a new approach towards my panic attacks. I know that maybe taking the first step to start therapy can be intimidating but i cant recommend minding you enough. It created a safe and calm place for me to help myself get better. I can now say anxiety and panic attacks is something i now know how to deal with and it’s no longer in control of me thanks to all of her help and support."
