Professional Background

Anna Hindell is a licensed clinical social worker and Iyengar yoga teacher providing psychotherapy in New York City. She specializes in helping people connect what is going on in their bodies with what is going on in their mind. Anna helps stressed-out teenagers, professionals, and parents get off the crisis-rinse-repeat cycle of therapy with a body-mind approach. The more self-aware people become, the easier it is to identify what makes them happy and what doesn’t. Anna helps people grow in self-acceptance, find new easeful ways of living, and figure out what they need in their life.

Anna is Gestalt therapist and certified Iyengar Yoga teacher. Gestalt psychotherapy and Iyengar Yoga focus on connecting the mind and body in the present moment. Using Iyengar yoga within her practice allows Anna to help clients connect to their present experience. In this body-mind approach, both disciplines help people identify the ways they keep themselves stuck. Once clients have done so, Anna helps them process and move
through their feelings.

Anna believes therapy is a collaboration and partnership. Anna’s goal is to understand things from client’s point of view without any judgement. Working together is designed to help clients increase their awareness of their emotional patterns in their daily lives. During sessions, Anna
focuses on what is happening in the moment in client’s bodies and minds. Gestalt therapy calls this bringing the “here and now” present moment into the sessions.

Anna loves her work. She feels it’s an honor when clients decide to share their private stories with her. She feels grateful to participate in these intimate discussions and witness a client’s transformations toward pursuing a more easeful and present way of being in the world.
