My Freedom To Thrive

Are You….

 

– stuck in a divorce that never seems to end?

– continually being pulled into court by your ex-partner?

– terrified watching your court costs spiral out of control?

– confused as to why your partner will not reach agreement?

 

Dr. Anne is a specialist psychologist in high-conflict relationships and trauma. She works with women who are caught in high-conflict divorces. She has helped hundreds of women just like you.

 

Dr. Anne’s Story

It’s hard to say when the last straw came. There were so many. So many stupid, little arguments that seemed to wash over me – or maybe more accurately drown me. The relentless negative atmosphere, being told I was worthless, being raged at when I asked for help or support. Feeling that I was the loneliest I’d ever been in my life, stuck in the middle of my dreadful marriage. 

Why Dr. Anne?

“I recommended Anne to one of my clients who was suffering a traumatic divorce with abuse and domestic violence during many years. She is extremely professional, and I saw an improvement in my client’s situation from the first session with her, which also helped me in dealing with the divorce case. I recommend her without a doubt.”

Inmaculada Albinana Luján, International Lawyer

Why Dr. Anne?

“Dr. Anne is one of the most profound psychologists we at Kamara Youths have the pleasure of working with. Our youths are vulnerable, and Dr. Anne’s method of working with individuals is brilliant. You are a phenomenal human being, and we are grateful for your service.”

Unisa Kamara, Founder of Kamara Youths. International speaker and Youth Advocate Warrior

Why Dr. Anne?

“Just when I think I can’t take this nightmare of a divorce any longer, Dr. Anne steadies me again and I find the strength to carry on. Her support has been invaluable. Without it, I would struggle to maintain the courage to stand up for myself in this abusive and demeaning situation. Thank you Dr. Anne!”

Anna M, Business Owner and client in high-conflict divorce

What’s it really like being in a difficult divorce?

The reason I work with professional women in high conflict divorces, is because I am one. 30 years of learning psychological theory did not help me avoid my own nightmare. This makes my perspective somewhat unique, drawing as it does on my life, theory, and my...

Yesterday was hard

Much of my client work is in the tricky area of #deprogramming. Essentially deprogramming is about rupturing one set of fundamental beliefs by putting them in direct conflict with another set of beliefs. I proactively use #cognitivedissonance as a mechanism...

Want to learn 1 essential step to perform better as a divorce lawyer?

Every lawyer knows that they have to work with distressed clients. It’s part of the role to simultaneously soothe emotions whilst gathering relevant information to build a case. However, there is a subset of cases that no amount of your pastoral support is going...

(At risk of being shot) My problem with ‘good divorce’ week

Ok, I’ll admit it off the bat: I am skewed in my perspective. I am probably not the most objective commentator on this because of the nature of my work and my client group. I specialise in trauma and abuse – it’s my daily diet. My clients are in the main professional...

Addictions and Authenticity: A conversation with Dr. Robert Lefever

Yesterday I was fortunate enough to have a wonderful conversation with Dr Robert Lefever, a world leading specialist in Addictions, founder of the first polyaddiction clinic in the UK, and self-admitted abstinent alcoholic. This later clause is of utmost importance in...

Beware Garrapatas during dating!

For those who don’t know what a garrapata is, it’s Spanish for tick. I’m not talking about the mark you long for on your graded paper, but the other kind. A garrapata is the sneaky parasite, who lies in wait in the long grass, until an unsuspecting warm-blooded victim...

Rage – the healing emotion

I do voluntary admin work on a Domestic Violence Facebook group. Every day women post their unedited rage at what has happened to them. Some of what has happened to them makes very difficult reading: extreme cruelty described in livid technicolour. It got me wondering...

Barriers to seeking psychological help for professional women

I once had a rather nasty acquaintance say to me, ‘If you’re a Psychologist, how come you got into a bad relationship? Shouldn’t you have known better?’ That statement cut me to the core because at some deep level I thought it was true. Here I was with all my degrees,...

A Therapist’s Frustration with Trauma Bonding

Trauma Bonding is in simple terms a neurochemical addiction. When an individual is in a relationship, they seek out physical connection and comfort. With this connection comes a lovely buzz of oxytocin – the ‘love/cuddle/bonding hormone’. Oxytocin is nature’s way...
