here's my approach to therapy
Understanding how our brain works and how it connects with the expression of the mind and consequent behaviours, is an important part in the process of change. Awareness, and a deeper understanding of your mind-body system, give you the key to a healthier relationship with yourself and the circumstances of your life.
Self-care for the mind is essential when dealing with life's turbulences. When you're pealing the potatoes, are you really pealing the potatoes or are you in your own distanced mind-world? When you're living your everyday life - your life - where are you? Are you really there, or are you elsewhere?
Because how you perceive your life story has a great impact on how you talk to yourself. And, ultimately, how you talk to (and about) yourself determines what you chose to do. Self-talk influences your everyday choices and the stories you keep repeating or the stories you create.
Feeling like life is running too fast?
is an online program to help you rewire your nervous system and restore your life.
The Anxiety-Free Future 3-week program is designed to help you recognise your worry triggers and transform your mental health, to give you peace of mind and improve your quality of life.
Created and led by licensed psychologist Ana Batista, it uses cognitive neuroscience, cognitive-behavioural therapy, and different forms of mindfulness, in a guided self-taught structure with a combination of practices and lectures, to give you the best results.
We'll focus on how to calm down your nervous system, how to identify and reduce your worry triggers, and how to reshape your identity around anxiety. So you can create a new life for yourself, anxiety-free.
