Anita Gupta

I have been working as a psychologist for almost 20 years, across public, private, community and higher education sectors.  I enjoy seeing clients of all ages, although at In Dialogue I will be mostly seeing clients who are 15 years and over.  I have experience working with a wide range of concerns, including the effects of trauma, parenting, difficulties with relationships, depression and anxiety.  Unfortunately, I am not a couples or family therapist, and I no longer conduct neurodevelopmental assessments.

As a therapist, I always work with an eye to my clients’ interpersonal patterns.  These develop early in life and shape the way we relate to others and to ourselves.  I draw on modern psychoanalytic theory, attachment theory and Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT) in my work. My practice approach is compassionate, mindful and embodied, grounded in long term meditation and yoga practices, and with a strong awareness of social context.

I bring my imperfect self into the therapy room.  I am warm and authentic, and actively encourage dialogue and feedback about therapy as it progresses.
