Anna is a chartered clinical psychologist, with over 15 years of experience, specialising in working with children and adolescents who have a whole range of emotional and behavioural difficulties. After completing her undergraduate degree at Bristol university, she did her clinical training at University College London. Since then Anna has worked in the NHS and the private sector at The Tavistock Clinic, Great Ormond Street Hospital, Vincent Square eating disorders clinic and the Priory Roehampton. She now works exclusively in private practice.
Anna is predominantly a child and adolescent psychologist working with emotional and behavioural difficulties, eating disorders, deliberate self harm, bullying, performance anxiety and child performers. She also works with parents, families and adults with eating disorders and stage fright and performance anxiety.
She has trained in many psychological models – cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT), psychodynamic therapy and systemic therapy. Primarily she now works with CBT as it increases the range of coping strategies available to people, thus equipping them to better manage their emotions and the difficulties that they are having. However, when and where necessary and appropriate she will utilise other psychological models.
In addition to her private practice Anna works on some of the West End stage shows with both the production companies and children who are struggling with a range of issues that are affecting their performance.
She is also a psychologist in the media, being a repeat guest expert on ITV’s This Morning.
Anna has extensive experience of working with psychiatrists, dieticians, family therapists, teachers and other such professionals.
