Ann Curry FdA Couns MBACP
Hi, my name is Ann and I am a person-centred counsellor.
I work with clients with low self-esteem so they can increase their self-confidence and start to create the life and relationships they want.
Would you like to stop people pleasing or feeling guilty when you do not do what others want? Do you want to stop feeling like everyone else’s feelings come before yours? Do you feel confused, unloved or insecure in your relationships? Would you like to increase your confidence and feel more able to assert your wants and needs?
Asking for advice from friends and family can often leave you feeling even more confused about your feelings. Sometimes you need a place to discuss them openly and honestly with someone who can listen to how you feel without judgement. Talking to a counsellor will give you the space to examine your feelings and beliefs and explore exactly what it is you want and how you would like to move forward.
I practice in a person-centred way, which means that I will not impress my opinions on you or give advice. I am here simply to help you unravel all of these emotions, in a safe way.
I offer confidential face to face, online and telephone counselling.
I am a qualified counsellor and a member of the British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapy so you can be assured that I practice to high standards and ethics.
You can call me on 07377 380 620 or email at email@example.com to arrange your first session, where we will explore what you are currently experiencing and what you would like to achieve from counselling. It is also an opportunity for you to see how comfortable you are working with me.
There is no time like the present to get started unloading all the unhelpful stuff and to start moving forward feeling lighter and happier.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have several years experience counselling within a charitable organisation and also in private practice counselling clients with issues such as anxiety, depression, bereavement, anticipatory grief, childhood abuse/abandonment. I also have extensive experience in counselling carers. I actively engage in continuous professional development to enhance my counselling skills.
I am a member of the BACP and adhere to their strict ethical guidelines . I also undertake regular supervision to ensure that I am practicing ethically and competently.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
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.
