Anopama thinks it is important to give a person a safe place to talk and be themselves. Her aim in therapy is to provide people with a strong therapeutic relationship where they do not feel judged and feel able to speak openly about their difficulties. Life can be full of challenges and stressors, that can affect our view of the world and ourselves. Sometimes, we feel unable to cope through no fault of our own, and we need support to help us overcome our problems. Anopama believe we are all individuals and as such require a treatment that is tailored to our individual needs. Therapy can help you develop skills to achieve your goals and work towards a life that you feel is worthwhile, whilst sticking to your values. Anopama thinks it is important to work collaboratively with people, developing a plan which they can work on at their own pace. She often says to people, I can show you the way, but it is you who has to take the steps. It is not an easy decision to enter in to therapy, it takes strength and commitment, but you are not alone in this journey, she can be there to support through each step. Anopama qualified as a counselling psychologist in 2001; she has worked always in adult services, within the NHS and private sector, working with people experiencing a range of mental health difficulties. During this time, she has also worked in a number of specialist services such as older people’s services, online services, and teams specialising ASD and EUPD. Her preferred therapeutic orientation is cognitive behavioural therapy, however she is also trained in Dialectal Behaviour Therapy and Compassion Focussed Therapy. She believes in tailoring the approach to the individual. She enjoys working with a variety of difficulties, developing a formulation with the patient, so that can better understand their difficulties and how to move forward.
