Tell us about yourself
Anam completed her training in Psychotherapy and Counseling from Therapy Works, a CPCAB UK accredited program, and has been practising as a therapist since 2015. Anam’s work is grounded in a firm belief that all her clients must be offered a non-judgemental, confidential and open space to explore and heal from their challenging life experiences in a meaningful way. While working with clients with experiences of anxiety, depression, abandonment, domestic abuse, sexual abuse, emotional and physical abuse, addiction, and interpersonal difficulties has formed the body of her therapeutic work, Anam is also deeply interested in trauma and healing during and after protracted conflicts and war. Apart from providing therapy, Anam is a researcher and field-worker with experience of working in conflict zones and with traumatic memories of violence, torture, abuse and loss. Her research has culminated in two published books: Between the Great Divide: A Journey into Pakistan-administered Kashmir (HarperCollins Publishers 2018) and The Footprints of Partition: Narratives of Four Generations of Pakistanis and Indians (HarperCollins Publishers 2015). Anam also has extensive experience as an educationist and has spent the past six years working with adolescents in Islamabad.
