My Working Ethos and Practice:

My counselling and psychotherapy working ethos are humanistic and client empowered to its core and what you can expect to receive as my client is:

  • A collaborative, therapeutic relationship where you are at the heart of what we do and where all your experiences and emotions are welcome as we explore and make sense of your thoughts, behaviour and emotions that are causing you emotional pain and conflict. Whether this is because of past events and experiences, and/or present life events, your sense of place in the world and the nature of your relationships with other people can all be impacted.
  • A confidential, non-judgemental, unconditional, consistent safe space where I will be present and grounded, and where you will be listened to and heard so that I may understand "how it is to be you". This will be done with empathy, positive regard and respect.
  • Support throughout your journey of self-exploration as we nurture the growth of a deeper sense of your self-acceptance and awareness, empathic understanding, self-confidence and esteem and much more. Your experiences of change and empowerment can then support you as you move forward into a life you want to live.
  • A therapeutic approach that is integrative and thus tailored to meet your therapeutic needs as and when they appear and change. Working this way enables me to draw on a variety of insights and techniques from a number of counselling psychology modalities. For example, those from Transactional Analysis (TA), Gestalt, Psychodynamic, Attachment theory and also incorporating those from a Solution Focused and Person Centred Approach. We can also work creatively, even if you do not consider yourself to be artistic, creative or a musician.

I am a fully registered member of and work within the ethical framework of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). Membership No: 735971

Member organisations

BACP

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Further information

NeuroDiverse Support Work

(For an Introduction into NeuroDiversity please visit www.anitasteercounselling.co.uk)

I also have the skill set, knowledge and experience for working with the challenges and rewards that encompasses NeuroDiversity:

  • Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD) inc. Asperger's Syndrome,
  • Attention Deficit (Hyperactivity) Disorder (AD(H)D),
  • Dyspraxia/DCD,
  • Dyscalculia,
  • Dyslexia,
  • Tourette's Syndrome.

This also includes working with the significant others of Neurodiversity therapeutically and practically.

There are many ways in which I can provide therapeutic support to this client group and my work to date includes:

  • Assisting organisation,
  • Problem-solving,
  • Goal recognition and setting,
  • Self-exploration (emotionality, thoughts, behaviour, sensations and stresses),
  • Identifying needs,
  • Exploration of existing and new resources,
  • Implementation of realistic coping strategies that can then support and assist:
  • Productivity,
  • Motivation,
  • Self-esteem,
  • Self-exploration and much more.

Also by recognising achievements, processes and progress, the re-framing of existing belief systems can be achieved so a more rational, empowering, sustainable and grounded in the here-and-now experience becomes available. Hence self-regulation can be a vital and empowering element of this work. Clients have reported it helps to maintain a greater level of self-awareness both psychologically and physically, and it can foster a greater sense of general well-being.

I practice privately in Addlestone, Weybridge, Woking and surrounding areas in Surrey.

I have both daytime and evening sessions available.

It is important to me that you work with a Support Worker that is right for you; one you feel comfortable with and that will hear and understand you. Therefore I offer a no obligation first session at a reduced rate of £40. This will give us the opportunity to discuss your reasons for seeking a Neurodiverse Support Worker and what you hope to gain from it, and all your questions are welcome.

All sessions thereafter will be £45.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
