Anita has received training in a number of different therapeutic models including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Systemic and Family therapy, Narrative Therapy and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy. Anita is very keen on ensuring all children and families receive the best possible treatments for the difficulties they are facing. She has published and presented some of her work in a number of academic journals and at medical conferences. In her spare time, Anita enjoys running and loves being by the sea!
Although on the 19 July 2021 regulations around the use of facemasks / coverings and social distancing will change across the country, at Bedfordshire Hospitals all COVID infection prevention control measures currently in place will remain the same.
The Trust has decided it is currently not safe to lift all restrictions at our hospitals.
Everyone attending our sites will still be required to wear a facemask (unless medically exempt), adhere to social distancing and attend your appointments alone especially in our Emergency Departments and Outpatients (exclusions apply to our paediatric patients and those requiring carer support)
Visiting is now permitted on most of our adult inpatient wards in a controlled manner. Appointments need to be pre-booked with ward staff.
Full details about attending our hospitals and visiting is available here.
