Meet Anika

Anika is a psychologist with over 25yrs of experience specialising in adolescent behaviour.

Having spent her own teenage years disconnected from parents, Anika has gone on to dedicate her life in supporting young people parents and professionals, by sharing the practical tools that help in avoiding the distress, instability and vulnerability that is often felt during this developmental stage.

Her journey to this point has seen Anika obtain a PGCE from the University of Nottingham which led her into teaching Psychology ‘A’Level at one of the top performing schools in the country. Anika also holds a Masters degree in Forensic Psychology from the University of Kent at Canterbury where her expertise has been utilised working with ‘hard to reach’ youth. Anika has worked with young offenders, has managed children’s residential units and opened an Alternative Provision for children who fell outside of mainstream education.

Now, in addition to her work with parents, employers and professionals, Anika is back in Nottingham leading on cutting-edge research as part of her PhD in Occupational Health Psychology & Management where she is investigating ways in which organisations can improve working parent productivity through offering targeted support.
