Dr Anna Seth was born in Scotland and graduated medicine from Newcastle Upon Tyne, UK, in 2002. After her intern year she migrated to Australia where she had an eclectic few years working in Cairns Base Hospital and surrounding communities in the specialities of emergency medicine, psychiatry, obstetrics and gynaecology (completing her advanced diploma of Obstetrics and Gynaecology with RANZCOG in 2007) and paediatrics before obtaining RACGP fellowship in 2011.
In 2011 Anna and her husband took off in their Landcruiser for a trip round the country doing some locum work and this led them to Tasmania, which they instantly fell in love with. Anna has subsequently worked in the Huon Valley and Headspace Hobart, and continues to work at John Street Medical Centre in Kingston.
Anna is seeing patients at The Bubble Hobart for Focussed Psychological Strategy interventions under a Mental Health Treatment Plan. She has undertaken extensive additional training in mental health and utilises CBT, Interpersonal therapy and Acceptance and Commitment therapy in her work. She provides trauma-informed care which is holistic and compassion focussed. She has particular interests in the mental health of women, menopause and mental health, the health benefits of connecting with nature, and in the mental health impacts of climate change. Anna is a climate change and social advocate, speaking and writing on the topic, co-chairing the Doctors for the Environment Mental Health Specific interest group and founding Climate Resilience Network locally. She is a registered Climate Aware Practitioner with Psychology for a Safe Climate. She also works with Primary Health Tasmania as a clinical editor for HealthPathways and on other mental health related projects. She facilitates monthly 'Dose of Nature' mindfulness sessions with Kingborough Council in local reserves.
In her spare time she loves to swim at her local beach, listen to birds in her backyard and spend time with her children.
At The Bubble Hobart we acknowledge the significant impact that mental health has on well-being and physical health. We are fortunate to have a team of specialist GP therapists and a clinical psychologist to offer mental health sessions to patients identifying as women.Learn more

It is often the time when women begin to experience the symptoms of menopause, such as hot flushes, vaginal changes and mood swings.Learn more

If you are aged between 25 to 74 with a cervix, you should have your first cervical screening test 2 years after your last Pap test. A common concern among cervix owners is the new age range for cervical screening as previously cervical screening started at age 18. Research shows us that having a five-yearly Cervical Screening Test from the age of 25 is safer and more effective than having a two-yearly Pap test from the age of 18.Learn more
