Anna Eraut MA (Hons) MA (Hons) MSc UKCP
Hello, my name is Anna. I am a psychotherapist working in both Central London, and Sussex.
One area of my specialisation is in helping people who feel “stuck” because of unresolved issues or traumas from their past. Often these are hidden away but can be the root cause of stress, anxiety, depression, psychosomatic issues or problems with relationships, with self-regulation, or while coping with bereavement and loss.
I help clients resolve such issues and support them in choosing a positive path for the future by focussing on their potential for self-growth and development.
I also specialise in helping people who feel overwhelmed by daily stresses and pressures to self-regulate better, feel calmer and lead a more balanced productive life.
I take a holistic approach that goes beyond simply talking through a client’s issues. It embraces their mental, physical, emotional and relational well-being and supports them to create sustainable changes in their life on every level.
Wherever you start from, I will be there to help you on your journey to a healthier, more fulfilling life, for as long as you need my support.

What are the sessions about?
The first session is an initial assessment. This is for us to formulate the issues you would like to work on, and explore possible ways of addressing them in therapy. This is also for you to see if you feel comfortable with me.
Sessions last for 50 minutes and are arranged on a weekly basis for a regular time. To begin with, I offer four sessions which conclude with a review. In the review we have a frank discussion about how the therapy is going for you, and whether or not I am the right psychotherapist for you.
After this we can make a contract for a limited-term or open-ended therapy.
My consulting room is private, comfortable and quiet. You will be treated sensitively, respectfully and in total confidence.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am trilingual (English, Russian, Ukrainian) and I have lived and worked in various parts of the world, the last seven in the UK.
I have two MA distinction degrees in humanities, and worked as as a researcher and editor for a few international organisations, before training to be a psychotherapist when I moved to the UK. I now have a Clinical Diploma in Gestalt Psychotherapy and an MSc in Gestalt Psychotherapy from Metanoia Institute in London, accredited through Middlesex University,
I spent some time teaching at the Metanoia Institute, one of the biggest institutions in the UK offering graduate training for psychotherapists, and I now teach the Gestalt Module to students on the Advanced Diploma in Integrative Psychotherapy Programme at Regent’s University, London, in the capacity of a visiting lecturer. I also run workshops for mental health professionals on topics around stress and self-regulation.
In 2012-2014 I set up and ran a youth charity in Lewes that promoted peer mentoring, mental health awareness, and drug and alcohol awareness.
