Anna Box

Anna Box is a psychologist, consultant and writer who mashes the art of story with the science of thriving. She believes that great tales are never just seen or heard, they are felt - and has devoted much of her life and career to understanding story, human thriving - and how together they can change us. Her study into the psycho-physiological response to storytelling sparked her interest in cinematherapy and all that has stemmed from Joe Campell's work concerning 'the hero's journey'.

Anna consults to a range of clients across corporate, not-for-profit, the arts, and elite sport; regarding what it is to thrive; what makes a great story; and how the two will play an increasing role in perhaps our most omnipresent form of storytelling today - branding. Dream projects incorporate strategy, culture, ideas, and human flourishing - hence her enthusiasm for The School Of Life. Anna never lets much time pass before hitting the cinema, and she believes wholeheartedly that film, story and song have sparked more 'aha' moments than therapy ever has.
