About me

Sometimes life can feel difficult. Problems with work, family, children, or parents may lead to anxiety or depression. All that may in turn cause low self-esteem and low self-confidence, as well as problems with sleep and concentration. As a result our relationships usually suffer. Everything can turn to a vicious cycle, where the problems appear unmanageable, leading to high stress levels and constant worry, or interfering with our eating and our mood. Life can then be seen as pointless and empty and we may feel lacking direction and not able to make decisions.  Other times bereavement, grief or previous trauma leave a long-lasting mark. All these are issues that can be worked through in Counselling. 

My practice is informed by considering motivations that are not always obvious. We may examine how the past can inform the present. Sometimes, making links with things that have happened before can help us understand our current behaviour and perhaps any unhelpful or repeating patterns.

Above all, I will treat you with respect and confidentiality. We will have the opportunity to navigate through your personal landscape in a safe space, directed by your pace and focused on your needs, so that you can fulfil your true potential and be the person that you want.

I work in a safe, quiet and comfortable space in Harpenden, Hertfordshire. I also offer sessions online. Everything that will be discussed is confidential. You are free to bring up anything that troubles you, or causes you anxiety, without fear of being judged. 

In order to arrange a suitable time to talk, please either send me an email on: annie@annie-therapy.co.uk, or send a message on: 07874 211 089. I offer an initial discussion without obligation by phone, or on Zoom. It will hopefully give you an idea of the process and the way I work and we will be able to explore your expectations. If we feel we can work together we can go ahead and book some regular sessions at a later date.

Member organisations

BACP
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
