About Anneli

I find it fulfilling to help people overcome difficulties and develop inner resources. I do this by thinking with them about what is troubling them. We exam destructive thoughts and feelings and focus on loosening their grip. I introduce supportive ideas and strengthening habits. My aim is to create a thoughtful and professional relationship. I encourage people to develop self-awareness and reflective thinking during our work, as these skills stand them in good stead once therapy has finished. I use psychoanalytic, existential and humanistic ideas to help people develop clarity and robustness.

I have worked in a number of mental health institutions, such as the Warneford Hospital in Oxford, the Royal Edinburgh Hospital and the national UK charity, Mind. I have been working as a psychologist or psychotherapist in consultancies and private practice since 1998.

BSc Psychology (Hons)
MSc Occupational Psychology
MA Psychotherapy and Counselling
Advanced Diploma in Integrative Psychotherapy

In 2010, I completed the five-year postgraduate training program at Regent's University London and qualified as a psychotherapist via the UKCP. Long term personal psychotherapy was a key requirement. Additionally, I have had my own analysis and completed a two-year psychoanalytic infant observation study with NHS Tavistock and Portman Trust.

The UKCP holds the largest register of professional psychotherapists in the UK. It list practitioner who meet its rigorous standards and training requirements. I am accredited by the UKCP and work within its Ethical Standards and Code of Practice. I am a member of the Oxford Psychotherapy Society and I have served in various roles on its committee.

Therapy can free you up to, be more at ease in your relationships; have a realistic view of the world and your place in it, and generally be more comfortable in your own skin.
