About me

Hi, I am Anna Lythgoe and hopefully I can offer you a taster of my  services and approach to counselling. Deciding to start working with a counsellor can feel like a huge step and choosing the right person is vital. I am an experienced, well qualified and most importantly  caring Person-Centred Counsellor based in Calisle but working in many parts of Cumbria. I can offer you a confidential space to talk and reflect without judgement or pressure. My way of working focus' very much on the uniqueness of each client - there is no one size fits all but a fresh and flexible approach.

The benefits of having a space just for you in which you work closely with a professional qualified to support and empower you are enormous. The sessions will be led by your needs and at a pace and challenge comfortable for you.

My experience is wide-ranging and includes work with adults, young people, children and families. I have experience of working in the charity sector, NHS and have set up both secondary and primary school counselling services. My private practice encompasses work with adults, young people, and children as well as working with families and schools where helpful.

I have experience of working in a wide range of settings and enjoy working with all ages of client.

I find great value in working creatively in both my supervisory and counselling roles and if you are comfortable reflecting on your practice through mediums such as creative writing, art, play and psychodrama they will be offered during our sessions. Illuminating and deepening your understanding of the challenging work you do is always my priority and is an exciting journey to take together.
