Anne Edwards MBACP
Hello, I am an experienced Psychodynamic Counsellor and Psychotherapist, offering both long term and short term counselling and psychotherapy from my private practice in Leicester, close to the city centre.
It may seem there are times when life can be challenging, and it can often feel too difficult to manage alone. Making the decision, and taking the first steps towards seeking a counsellor can be a very daunting and anxiety provoking time, through my warm approach I aim to create and offer you a safe and supportive space to talk about those challenges. A place where we can work together, and most importantly a place where you feel free to explore your emotions, experiences and difficulties that have brought you to this point.
Together we can work towards understanding your past experiences, how this effects you now, and equip you with the 'tools' to create new ways of relating to yourself and to others. Thereby strengthening your internal world and your self esteem to bring about, a noticeable and lasting change.
I have particular interests in the areas of relational difficulties, early development, incubation, separation anxiety, adoption (from adoptee perspective), pregnancy, maternal and paternal mental health issues during the perinatal period, postnatal depression, male mental health, general anxiety and depression.
My consulting room which is close to the city centre, is easily accessible by public transport and by car, with affordable on street parking available nearby.
