Around 100,000 people of Czech nationality or origin currently live in the UK. Among them we can find many important personalities, but also individuals with unique personal stories. We decided to present you the most interesting of them in our project “CZEXPATS Interviews”, this time with the writer and psychotherapist Anna Fodorová.
Is it difficult for a Czech author to write screenplays for British television? How is psychotherapy reflected in his books? And what is the message of his new book “In the Blood”? Find out all this and more in our interview with Anna Fodorová.
Anna Fodorová is a Czech writer and psychotherapist living in London. She graduated from the University of Applied Arts in Prague, after the Warsaw Pact invasion in August 1968 she did not return to Czechoslovakia from her vacation in England and graduated in film at the Royal College of Art from London. In England, she filmed several animated shows for children’s TV shows, published a children’s book, wrote TV scripts for the BBC and lectured at the famous Central St. Martin’s College of Art. During her training in psychodynamic counseling and psychoanalytic psychotherapy, she published articles on “the loss of things” and on the transgenerational transmission of trauma.
