Before I started CBT with Rhianna,  I was making myself miserable in a cycle of negative self talk. My constant berating of myself was taking a huge amount of time and energy and clouding my decisions in my personal, creative and professional life. Working with Rhianna, has been transformational for me. Through our sessions I learnt how to tackle my negative thoughts and understand why I was having them. I now feel I have gained an empowered understanding of my mental health, and my triggers.  Since starting therapy I’ve been able to reach outside of myself again and get involved in things I’ve discouraged myself from doing in the past. I’ve been able to enjoy my time more freely both alone and with others.

I feel like a massive weight has been lifted off my shoulders and Rhianna is completely to thank for that! I always felt I was able to be honest and open in our zoom sessions and she was amazing at finding the balance between guiding me through the steps of CBT and allowing me to discover them for myself. In  committing to this therapy, I now have a strong foundation of tools and understanding to grow and work from . I’m optimistic about the future, which feels miraculous in such an uncertain time and is so different to how I was feeling only eight weeks ago.   

Thank you so much Rhianna, you’ve really changed my life.

I approached Rhianna as I was struggling with PTSD symptoms, immense pain, fear, and unnecessary guilt caused by a trauma I experienced when I was 16. Before my therapy sessions with Rhianna, I tried many ways to heal myself like yoga, meditation, career changes, reading, and although I made some progress, I was not able to keep consistent and it seemed as though my daily life still consisted of mainly anxiety, haunting memories, flashbacks, and confusion.

These issues seemed to be really ingrained in me and I was losing hope. From day one of CBT, Rhianna has patiently helped me to reformulate the impact of this trauma on my life. She has been diligent, reassuring, and compassionate throughout the entire healing process which allowed me to comfortably open up and trust her, but also trust myself. I felt like a co-pilot whilst being gently guided. I felt safe and making these deeper shifts within me, through CBT, led to a real transformation. Everything quickly started to fall into place.

Rhianna’s work was insightful, subtle, and really powerful. The results of CBT have been highly effective and the transformation in how I feel is remarkable. I no longer suffer daily with PTSD symptoms and anxiety and feel much more clarity and lightness mentally. Such a huge weight has lifted, and I feel as though I have been released from anchors which held me back for years. Before CBT, I found my mind was constantly either living in the past, or worried about the unforeseeable future.

Rhianna has an extraordinary presence that has the power to bring you right back home and recenter. This allowed me to become more present and view things from a much healthier perspective which contributed immensely to my healing. This newfound internal freedom has exceeded all my expectations. I now have the capacity to move forward in life. 

Rhianna has quite literally saved my life and I will forever be grateful. 

Before beginning therapy with Rhianna I had dug myself deep into a philosophical hole and couldn't see a way out. For many months, all of my time had become dedicated to solving existential problems that had no answer, leading to perpetual anxiety, poor performance at work and a difficulty enjoying life.

Rhianna immediately made me feel at ease with her calm and gentle demeanor, and right off the bat identified an intolerance of uncertainty as the root of the problem. She taught me that my symptoms of OCD and anxiety are perpetuated every time I try and answer a philosophical question, and to only answer them if I truly wanted to, rather than as a compulsion for short term relief from anxiety.

Rhianna always took the time to listen to me in detail, and worked alongside me to develop a tailor made solution that combined elements of CBT and ACT. Following on from her advice, I now feel confident that I have my life back and can begin enjoying life to the fullest and giving my all at work. I couldn't recommend Rhianna highly enough, she truly turned my life around.
