Ann Finucane MBACP
Hello my name is Ann and I’m guessing if you are reading this, you are thinking about counselling. I am a qualified professional counsellor/psychotherapist, a member of the BACP (registration no. 350562). Originally I am from County Clare, Ireland but today I live and work from Rugeley, Staffordshire.
More importantly right now you may be thinking of finding a counsellor that you feel understands and connects with you. I am a trained person centred / integrative counsellor and psychotherapist, which means that I will draw on different approaches while focusing on your needs.
I work with young adults, adults and the elderly to make sense of the realities that life presents us with. All counselling / psychotherapy sessions take place in my purpose built practice Nora House in Brereton, Rugeley, Staffordshire. The practice has two therapy rooms, wheelchair access, off road parking and easily accessible.

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.

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).
