Trust the process

Rated 5 out of 5

I started counseling with Sadia in September of 2021; she is half of a whole that saved my life.
Before my sessions with Sadia I was struggling with anxiety and depression, occasionally having suicidal thoughts. She helped me regain confidence, she guided me towards my purpose and gave me the tools to pull myself out of a tough situation (mentally speaking).
The greatest take away from the sessions so far has been to trust the process and believe that you are important.
Your mental toughness is very much like physical toughness, you need to train and work at it to reach any sort of goal you have.
I am a big advocate for therapy/counseling as it has impacted my life majorly.
Do what works for you, we are all human, we are not without struggle and it’s very important that, when that struggle comes around, you can work through it rather than letting it consume you.

When I started my counseling sessions with Sadia I was going through a rough patch ,I was at a point where I lost myself completely.
I bottled this up ,I never learned to stand up for myself or put my interests first
On our first session I was hopeless because I had already tried counseling it never worked,but now I’m very much happy to say meeting someone like Sadia was/is a blessing
She’s very attentive and professional, I’d recommend her to anyone who’d find themselves in a very same situation or similar…may God continue to bless her

I was going through a divorce and I needed some guidance. I then found Authentically Anchored Therapy (Pty) Ltd.
I was weary and very anxious when I started my first session. But that day was the beginning of something new for me. Sadia is amazing, listens attentively and definitely knows how to deal with your situation with true professionalism.
Thank you! I would recommend you to everyone. If you reading this, take that first step.

I have had 14 sessions with Sadia and she has helped me to get into a space to work through my problems in a calm and measured way. I am grateful to have found Sadia as I have not
had much progress with previous therapists as I found them to be too abstract.

Peace of Mind

I have been diagnosed with bipolar depression and haven’t received any counselling in 18 months, so I didn’t know what to expect with my first session. Needless to say, I was a complete emotional wreck with my first session.
Right from the start Sadia made me feel comfortable and listened attentively to my situation, and as you can imagine, I had a lot to say.
I have had 6 sessions with Sadia, and each of the sessions have been immaculate and she is very professional. I have grown a lot and most importantly, I have learned to love and accept myself with my shortcomings and all, which have always been a big challenge for me.
I can definitely recommend Authentically Anchored for any counselling services, as thanks to Sadia, I have peace of mind.
Thank you Sadia.
Kind regards

I’ve only just begun my counselling sessions with Sadia but I already feel very comfortable talking with her and very understood by her. I think its vital to find that in a professional when dealing with sensitive issues. I look forward to our following sessions knowing that I have a relaxed space to express myself.
