Dr. Aneesa Shariff joins the Tower Clinic!

Do you feel like anxiety gets in the way of you living your best life? Is it affecting your career, your relationships, or your ability to live in the moment? Do your worries feel uncontrollable? Perhaps you would like to learn how to manage your anxiety better and learn proven coping techniques that will help you to function better and feel calmer.

As a dual qualified Clinical and Counselling psychologist, I have the highest level of training and specialise in treatment of anxiety using a range of evidence based therapies, including CBT and other proven models. I have worked in adult mental health, employee well being, and long term health conditions in the NHS in senior level specialist posts, and continue with my NHS work part time. With over 12 years’ post qualified experience, I also provide clinical supervision to other psychologists, counsellors, therapists, and trainees.

I favour time limited, goal oriented therapy where possible, as I understand therapy is a significant investment and people generally like to feel better as soon as possible. In our initial assessment, I will work to understand the changes you are hoping to make, and share the recommended treatment plan and estimated number of sessions with you.

It’s not easy asking for professional help and opening up to a stranger about all the things that make you feel vulnerable. I do my best to create a non judgemental, warm, and collaborative space for you to feel comfortable, and regularly invite feedback at the end of every session. I am also passionate about culturally inclusive therapy and have published research in this area. I have also been interviewed by the BBC several times as an expert in culturally inclusive practice. In my clinical work, this means that I embrace talking about your religious faith, cultural background, spiritual beliefs, or any experiences of racism or discrimination, and will tailor the approach and techniques to fit with this.

To book a session with me, please get in touch with the Tower Clinic.
