About Anna Fiona Keogh

Anna Fiona Keogh qualified with an MA in Dance Movement Psychotherapy (DMP) from Goldsmiths University of London in 2008. I have over 15 years of experience of providing DMP in diverse settings including addiction, mental health, education, intellectual disability, community and spirituality settings, as well as private practice. Originally trained in psychodynamic psychotherapy, I also draw on ecopsychology, somatic and humanistic approaches. 

I ​​​am curious about how creative movement and dance supports our wellbeing, and in particular how our relationship with the more-than-human world brings healing. 

I support clients through significant life and identity transitions and decisions, such as living and recovering from addiction, living with illness, entering parenthood, loss and bereavement, the beginnings or endings of relationships, or changes in life direction or livelihood. 

​​​I am a professional member of the Irish Association of Creative Arts Therapists (IACAT), the Association of Dance Movement Psychotherapy UK (ADMP) and ​​​a community dance teacher registered with the Laban Guild for Movement and Dance. I am a certified facilitator in 
The BodyMind Approach for people with medically unexplained symptoms.

In addition to my therapy practice, I work as the editorial assistant for The International Journal of Body, Movement and Dance in PsychotherapyI co-authored a chapter with Joan Davis, 'Cultivating the ‘felt sense’ of wellbeing – how we know we are well' for the Oxford Handbook of Dance and Wellbeing. I also wrote a chapter called 'Stillness' for Sr. Stan Kennedy's book Day by Day.              

Some interesting talks and videos:
