Anna Godfrey



Anna has been working in Croydon’s Early Intervention Services as an infant-parent psychotherapist for the last 5 years. As a registered UKCP member, she has sat on the UKCP Infant-Parent Psychotherapy sub-committee and contributed to the development of IPP training standards. Her background in literature and the arts led her to begin therapeutic training with CYP at the Institute for Arts in Therapy and Education (IATE). She then went on to complete her MA in child and adolescent psychotherapy at Terapia. Anna has worked with a culturally diverse range of clients of different ages in a variety of South London settings. Before her work in Croydon, she set up a counselling service for young people in a sixth form college to respond to the increasing mental health need. Anna is passionate about addressing this need through early intervention infant-family relationship support. Her community-based therapeutic work, as part of a wide multidisciplinary team across Croydon, seeks to recognise diversity, identify barriers and empower minority infant-parent relationships. Anna is developing a research interest in intergenerational racialized trauma, looking to develop a culturally strengths-based approach in her work as an infant-parent psychotherapist with families of all cultures.
