    Being diagnosed with clinical depression and anxiety can be overwhelming if you do not have the right support. Thankfully, I did. Not only in my friends and family but also in my therapist. She was really kind and supportive not only during sessions but also outside of it. Her concern for my well-being motivated me to keep striving and working on myself. Thank you so much!

    My mental health journey hasn’t been an easy one but it sure has been full of empathy. From booking my first ever session I’ve received constant understanding and unconditional positive regard from not only my therapist but the entire team. My therapist has not only helped me gain a deeper understanding of what was actually bothering me but also gave me strategies and easy-to-do exercises that applied to real-life situations.

    I’ve come a long way with my anxiety, thanks to my therapist at Heart It Out. She has helped me out with regulating anxiety levels in different situations while leading a functional lifestyle. My therapy sessions were eye-opening for me as I was finally facing what I was experiencing. My therapist helped me to come to terms with who I am and was a constant guide and support system.
