THERAPISTS

ANDREW MALLETT

PSYCHOTHERAPIST 

Andrew is a group analyst and psychotherapist.  He has been running therapy groups within the NHS for the last eight years and also works in a university and in private practice.  Prior to training as a psychotherapist he worked in theatre for ten years before setting up his own business providing training and coaching in business and community settings. 

Anna’s background as an artist informs her yoga teaching and you can expect creative and attuned sequences.  Anna’s practice is all about encouraging students to bring and work with all parts of themselves, the parts that feel easier and more spacious as well as those that perhaps feel more uncomfortable and stuck.  Anna uses the platform of yoga to help people, herself included, reconnect back to their bodies, to the ability to play, express and so heal. Andrew is working in collaboration with some of our yoga teachers.

She's been working as a psychotherapist in Higher Education and the NHS for the past 15 years and loves helping people find creative ways to improve their lives. She's led numerous Mindfulness and psycho-educational workshops, and her approach in facilitating group work is positive and solution focused.
