About me

Hi, I'm Annie. I've been a counsellor for nearly 20 years. My clients often tell me how scared they felt about starting counselling. You've already taken that first step by looking at this directory. The initial interview is more a chat about difficulties and how to take things forward. Mostly what I hear is that the first meeting is not nearly as terrifying as the fear was.

I'm often told that I'm warm, empathic, safe and non-judgmental. Before I became a counsellor I spent 10 years working with homeless people. Since I qualified I've worked at The Rock Clinic, in a consulting room in Patcham and for many years at a local university seeing students. I see people of all ages with a wide variety of issues. At the university my specialisms were drugs and alcohol work and I also ran two analytic groups.

i can offer you short or long term counselling depending on the type of change you want to achieve. If your difficulties are concerned with a current problem we might agree to meet for 6 to 12 sessions. If you're concerned more with root causes which may go a long way back then we might agree to work for considerably longer.

I am psychodynamically trained but use insights and strategies from other modalities such as CBT where they might be helpful. I'm also a supervisor of nearly 10 years standing and see counsellors and counsellors in training.

Please feel free to email, text or phone me. I offer some concessions but I do normally charge a full fee for the assessment which is a vital part of the process. It doesn't commit you to ongoing sessions but usually this is what happens as people tell me they feel comfortable with me.
