Anna-Mae Silver - Psychotherapist, Counsellor and Supervisor
I am an experienced Psychotherapist, Counsellor and supervisor of 25 years. My focus is to help my clients unlock the blocks in their life, creating a safe environment where you can hear yourself and hopefully meet yourself, perhaps for the first time.
At some point in your life you may have felt overwhelmed by what is happening to you, and possibly become anxious or depressed about this. With the help of family or friends, or by yourself, you may have tried to sort out your difficulties. Sometimes you will have succeeded and then can get on with your life...but there can remain a central issue you realise you have so far been unable to resolve.
The aim of the therapy is to help gain a greater understanding of yourself and your life including the possibilities that are open to you. This aims to enable you to live life with more ease, confidence and fulfilment and to move forward.
People do not need to have a serious problem or difficulty to come for therapy. Some people come to assess where they are in their lives or to help them make a decision about the future. Others come in order to understand themselves better.
I work with a diverse range of people in a safe, confidential space for you to explore whatever you wish without judgement.
Areas of Experience
I have a wealth of experience and some of these areas include:
- relationship issues
- traumatic experiences
- work-related issues
- identity issues
- or blocks in their creative life.
- holocaust and second-generation issues
What happens next:
If you decide that you'd like to see what counselling/therapy would be like, just get in contact via email or by calling me on 0208 455 0431 to book an initial session. Sessions last 50 minutes and gives you a chance to consider whether I am the right psychotherapist for you. You can ask any questions you like - please call me/leave a message and I will come back to you as soon as possible.
If you decide you're happy to proceed, we can arrange ongoing sessions - this is normally weekly, but you can come more often if you feel you want to.
I work with people on a long-term basis, at least weekly but will also see people on a short-term basis. I mainly work in Golders Green but I also have a practice in Archway.

I am an experienced counsellor who specialises in working with Holocaust survivors and their families, both first and second generation. You will have a unique story and I am here to give you a safe non-judgemental environment where you can really be heard. Together we can work through your issues and help you move forward.
My work has expanded to working with refugees and others who have experienced trauma. As a refugee, you may be suffering from anxiety, depression or emotional distress on top of dealing with physical and practical issues.
