I have had a history of depression and anxiety. I tried many ways of dealing with it (some more successful than others). This was the first time I had tried Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and I was not sure what to expect. Dr Annahita has a calm relaxing manner which made for productive sessions. However, she was not afraid to push me and dig deeper to get the bottom of an issue without being intrusive or triggering negative thoughts. I always felt comfortable engaging in a dialogue and challenging her whenever we disagreed (which didn’t happen often!). Through the process of the sessions I became more able to identify and manage my feelings, something that I have always had problems with. I also realised how much of my behaviours and thought patterns are related to experiences in my childhood. Understanding how and why I have certain negative thought patterns has helped me to manage them much better. Dr Annahita also helped me to identify anxiety as a cause of many of my symptoms which helped to develop the right coping mechanisms. I feel I am now equipped with a much greater set of tools for the next time that depression looms on the horizon. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr Annahita to anyone suffering from the debilitating effects of depression and/or anxiety.
Dr Annahita treated me with upmost respect and 100% kindness. Her calm and funny nature, along with her ability to push me (kindly) into a space where I could talk and probe my difficulties allowed me to gain much insight into ‘me’ and start my ongoing self-development. I am so grateful to her
I feel like I understand myself and my emotions so much more than I could have imagined. The sessions with Dr Annahita, although challenging at times, always felt constructive and I felt like I was making progress every week. She was always supportive and non-judgmental, particularly when I felt like I had a bad week or set-back. Can’t Thank Dr Annahita enough!
I have been fortunate enough to work with Dr Annahita over the past year. I greatly enjoyed my sessions and we worked hard on many different topics. I learnt a huge amount about myself and the relationships I have with others. Significantly, we also spent a fair amount of time looking at values and goals and it has had such a positive impact on me. I am very grateful to Annahita and can honestly say that my sessions with her have really changed my approach to many aspects of my life, and I feel far better equipped for the future.
I had some sessions with Dr Annahita Nezami and found them extremely helpful. I was reluctant about going and she made me feel extremely comfortable, asked insightful questions and really helped my family and I. I would thoroughly recommend her to anyone, she’s a delight.
Dr Annahita was very perceptive of our issues. She pinpointed the problem(s) quickly and accurately and worked with us to help us understand and move through the different issues. We highly recommend her as a Psychologist.
I saw Dr Annahita in her consultation room in Kingston upon Thames. The space is warm and welcoming and she is caring and knowledgeable. She seemed to really care about me and my problems and was my cheerleader along the way. She provided me with deep insight into my depression, why it’s there, what it is showing me. We worked on understanding my pain, and I learnt the importance of not discounting it! Thank you Dr Annahita!
