Annika Lindberg is a Chartered Counselling Psychologist who practices in London. She has specialised in gambling addiction since 2004 after spending a few years in Las Vegas conducting academic research and clinical treatment for this client group.
She joined the National Problem Gambling clinic in London UK as one of the first clinicians when they opened their doors in 2010. In 2012, Annika moved to set up a CBT clinic for staff at Guy’s and St Thomas’s hospitals, but maintained involvement in gambling treatment all along. Until recently, she ran two programmes for homeless addicted gamblers in Westminster, London, and has continued to treat gamblers in her private clinic.
She has published academic research and two book chapters (one in press) on the treatment of gambling addiction, and has been a visiting clinical lecturer at universities in the UK and Italy. She recently trained the staff at one of Sweden’s national specialist clinics for gambling and gaming treatment.
