About me

I am a UK trained Speech and Language Therapist/Pathologist, with experience working across clinics and also schools in London.

Now based in Tokyo, I see children/young people and adults presenting with a range of differences, such as speech, language, communication, interaction, attention/listening, behavioural and emotional regulation differences.

“Luckily, I came across Anissa's website about her availability to treat English-speaking patients residing in Japan, and I immediately sought her help. It was the best decision ever. Anissa did a great job giving advice and strategies to minimize my stammering. I gained a lot more confidence over time as the therapy went on. I'm now more ready and confident to socialize and meet new people! Thank you, Anissa.

The most important lesson I gained throughout my therapy with Anissa is to embrace my stammering.I learned that my stammering is not my fault and should not be something I should blame myself for.”

"Anissa was able to make an instant connection with our child who had been reluctant to speak with others and suffering with communication issues. She immediately made him feel comfortable with her and made the session fun. Anissa has a clear focus in what it is she wants to achieve and a variety of options and approaches to working towards these objectives. She has also been willing to be flexible on locations and times which is further evidence of her commitment."

"It was the right decision to visit Ms. Eckhoff for helping me to improve my slur speech back to normal. My speech has improved profoundly since and it is now so much easier for me to communicate in the everyday life. Thanks a lot!"

- Adult patient in Tokyo


"We were so lucky to be recommended to Ms. Eckhoff. Our 5 year old son has chronic hoarseness due to improper use of his voice, and a few minor enunciation issues. Since he has started SLT with Ms. Eckhoff, he is much more aware of how he uses his voice and much more willing to practice good voice hygiene when reminded. He looks forward to seeing Miss Anissa every week!

"In just a few short months of working with Anissa, my son, who has autism, has experienced remarkable growth in confidence and understanding. This positive transformation has extended beyond his social interactions, influencing various aspects of his life, including his participation in sports."

"My visit today was very helpful. My child started school recently and today was her last appointment with Anissa, she made sure of a future plan for my child's care. We could not have asked for a better SLT. Thank you Anissa."
