My aim as a therapist is to help develop an individualised, shared formulation to
understand how your difficulties may have developed and are maintained. This is the
“backbone” for our therapeutic understanding and intervention and will be covered in
the initial assessment session(s). The therapeutic relationship offers a safe space to
collaboratively explore and understand your difficulties. Therapy will be offered on a
contract basis (usually six initially) and will help you work towards your set goals and
values. Whilst therapy is not a “cure”, my passion lies in working alongside people
who are struggling with life and to help to build up confidence, resilience and skills, in
order to make changes and help you to continue your journey through life. Each
session will last for 50 minutes.

We found Anneliese fortunately via a lovely neighbor, and at a time when our daughter was really struggling with OCD, and we were at our wits end having tried both private child psychologist and counsellors who really never nailed a diagnosis to her problems.
Anneliese is a wonderful person, charming and understanding and made us and our daughter feel very comfortable that we were going to make progress and there was for once a controlled method to help her deal with all the daily problems OCD was causing her and the family in general.
We saw Anneliese on a weekly and sometimes fortnightly basis sometimes as a group and sometimes just our daughter, and each time there was direction, sympathy, understanding and progress. We have learnt so much about this mental illness, you learn that there's a huge amount of patience required, that progress is slow and can easily go backwards, but Anneliese was open and extremely professional and gave our daughter the tools she has today to help her deal more comfortably and with confidence when her anxieties return.
We as parents would highly recommend Anneliese to anyone whose child required help without hesitation. Steve, Parent.
