What People are saying
“I found Anjana probably at the darkest point of my life where I was severely depressed and struggling to process a recent traumatic event and the social isolation surrounding the pandemic. I had tried conventional CBT and had limited benefits from it. I noticed a difference in my mood immediately and with each session felt lighter and happier. As a medical doctor by profession, I would have thought the less conventional therapies would not be so effective and was amazed by the results. I would definitely recommend Anjana to anyone to heal from trauma. She has a genuine gift.”

Going through a coaching package with Jess was an amazing experience, and since then I have made some significant changes to my life. I have always been a very high achiever and have achieved a lot of success in my time, but it has come at a high emotional cost. The clearings we did allowed me to see where I have patterns that were impacting my being and to make the changes with confidence. I am excited to see where the next 12 months takes me.”
