Anne Marie Kelly has two distinct, yet complementary current career paths, one as a player in the world of the arts with productions in film and music, and the other as an Integrative Psychotherapist with a special interest in trauma, anxiety, panic and stress.
In all areas of my work, truth, honesty and congruence with the self, is what drives me. Art, Drama and Music of all mediums and genres, serve as my link to mental wellness as I process the disconnects, hurts and disenfranchisements that my therapeutic work brings.
