Treatments Practiced by Anita Jacob:
Philosophy and style of working:
Anita practices integrative psychotherapy primarily focusing on attachment, believing that the past affects the present. This means that in creating an understanding of relationships throughout one’s life, one can begin to address these and the impact on current relationships and begin to heal.
If there are significant factors including trauma, abuse, bullying, she has found that EMDR therapy has been very helpful in healing lasting wounds from these events, allowing each person to feel free from the negative beliefs formed by such events and patterns of thinking.
