Specialist Therapy for Professionals Struggling with Anxiety, Burn out, and Trauma

You’ve worked hard to achieve success in your career and to others, you seem to be in control and have it all. But you can’t seem to control your worries. You often get stuck in over thinking and worrying about worst case scenarios. You may be worrying about the future, your finances, your health, career, or struggle with specific fears and phobias. You struggle to sleep well at night because of your anxiety and wake up feeling exhausted. You may even experience panic attacks due to your anxiety, which only make you feel even more out of control. You find it difficult to be truly in the moment, enjoying down time because your anxiety is always taking over. If this sounds like you, you're not alone.

Bespoke Therapy and Coaching, Grounded in Science

If you're tired of going round in circles trying to cope with your anxiety, you've come to the right place. Many high achieving, successful people have tried the gym, yoga, massage, spas, and other self care strategies to manage anxiety. Perhaps you are now recognising that this isn't enough. It's difficult for many people to admit they need outside professional help, but seeking out therapy should be as routine as going to the dentist or the GP. We are all human, and we all have tricky brains at times. With the right specialist, you can learn to break free of the paralysis of anxiety by dropping old coping strategies that make anxiety worse and learn to live life in the moment. Not only can you start to feel better, but your relationships, work, and overall quality of life will also improve when you aren't consumed by anxiety.

Anxiety Treatment with an HCPC Regulated Psychologist

There are lots of therapists out there. Choose one who is a specialist, a regulated healthcare professional, and trained in a range of therapeutic approaches that are guided by the latest research. This will offer you a truly bespoke and more effective therapy experience.

Welcome, I'm Dr. Aneesa Shariff. Over the last 14 years working as a qualified clinical psychologist in Canada and NHS senior level posts, I have come to enjoy working with clients who are struggling with various forms of anxiety, such as OCD, Panic, Phobias, PTSD, and burnout. I am also a clinical supervisor, published author, and media psychologist. I specialise in treatment of anxiety using a range of evidence based therapies, including CBT and other proven models. I also highly value working with people from ethnically diverse communities, which has led to several research publications and media work on acculturation, identity development, and culturally responsive therapies.
