Ann Hallam, MBACP, MSc Counselling
I am a qualified integrative therapist, meaning I draw on a range of approaches, including person centered therapy, cognitive behaviour therapy and psychodynamic counselling, in order to provide the right support for you. I offer an empathic and non-judgemental relationship to enable you to address difficult issues from your past or present and explore new or different ways of living your life and relationships.
I aim to provide a safe and confidential environment as you examine the assumptions you had previously made about yourself and others, and help you to realise how your attitudes, feelings and behaviour are being negatively affected. You will always be in control of what you want to talk about.
My practice is based in a discreet, calm garden office in north Beaconsfield with free parking available. I offer both long term and short term counselling.

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.
