I started to visit Riana on a weekly basis at a very low point – and when I had run out of tools to help myself independently. Almost two year later, and Riana has helped me navigate some massive changes in my life, such as a new job, mending rifts with family and friends, and embarking on a new relationship – each change coming with its own unique challenges, and learning a lot about myself in the process. Riana met my issues with patience and wisdom and allowed me to find inner strength by being a source of stability for me when I felt life was turned upside down. I thoroughly recommend Riana and The Awareness Centre – thank you!


I was sceptical on how effective therapy would be but seeing as my life was a total mess with me having no joy, no hope and no clue on how to deal with it I thought I may as well give it a go. I’m extremely happy I did. On 28th of September, which was the day before my first session, I was as low as could have possibly got – I didn’t want to socialise, I didn’t want to go to work, I didn’t want have any contact with anyone to the point where I had hardly been outside the house for the best part of a year! With Minoo’s help however, my life has changed dramatically. She managed to get me to ask questions of myself – questions I would never have even thought about without her assistance – and I now feel empowered enough to make drastic changes. Now I’m not going to say that my life is now perfect and there is quite a way to go but for the first time in a long time (and by long I mean at least 6 years) I feel like I have the ability and the strength to change things around. Like I said at the beginning, I was sceptical on how effective Therapy would be but after the sessions I’ve had with Minoo for the last 3 months I would recommend it (and have been) to anyone who is struggling with there mental health as she has really helped my to turn things around!Thank you Minoo – you really have helped me more that I can put into words!


After the sudden death of a close friend, which had followed on from the sudden death of another good friend, I began to experience anxiety attacks. They were serious enough that I attended hospital by ambulance. I came to therapy with Donna in order to cope with bereavement. However, through her probing questions, I was able to understand where I was in terms of my life and also the loss I had felt of my inner optimism and vibrancy.

From the first session, I began to feel deep relief within myself and since then I can think of my friends and family without having an attack. I also feel liberated from the closed in feeling that I had carried with me for a while and I have regained much of my confidence both personally and professionally. I think that Donna was able to understand what I needed straight away and I am grateful for the space to be able to speak freely about my emotions without feeling judged.


The Awareness Centre recommended a private therapist to me. I am so grateful for this. I have been seeing this therapist now for well over a year and it has been very extremely good. Without this support, I don’t think I would’ve managed to deal with my situation.
