On speaking out about her experiences, she realised there was a huge stigma attached to mental health issues and was determined to challenge these. In doing so, since 2009 Anna has studied and qualified as a counsellor, life coach and Master NLP. She now runs her own private coaching practice offering those in need one-to-one coaching sessions, alongside sharing her expertise through television appearances on programmes including This Morning, Good Morning Britain (ITV), Inside Out (BBC One), Big Brother’s Bit on the Side (Channel 5) and celebrity dating show Single AF (MTV).
In 2019 Anna was announced as the new dating expert on E4’s Celebs Go Dating and continues to entertain with her warm persona and quick wit alongside Paul Brunson.
