Annie Ford. Dip Counselling MBACP (Registered)
07748 523 704
I am an experienced warm empathic practitioner who will work with you to gain a deeper understanding of yourself and how to manage difficulties you may be facing.
Counselling enhances self-awareness and from that the opportunity to allow new possibilities to emerge and changes to take place leading to a happier and more fulfilling life.
As a Registered MBACP Counsellor, I am professionally trained to provide a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space for you to explore what is important to you.
I am Integratively trained, which means I use the most appropriate counselling skills to suit client’s individual needs.
Issues I frequently work with include depression, anxiety, stress, bereavement, loss and relationship problems. I also work with life transition, career or work situations.
When dealing with complex distressing issues in life they can be difficult to express to friends and family; our work will help you move towards accepting and supporting yourself without fear of judgement.
I have worked professionally in GP Practices, Hospitals and Community Health settings as counsellor, coach, clinician and clinical supervisor.
My Calm Studio is based in Mid Devon between Cullompton and Exeter.
As a Registered Member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP), I adhere to their Code of Ethics, confidentiality and good practice. I have regular Supervision to support my practice and I attend regular professional development and training.
