Ann Shellard MSc, MBACP
I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and I have worked extensively with NHS IAPT clients struggling with anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, identity issues, bereavement, abuse and trauma.
Together we could explore and make sense of whatever negative thoughts and feelings you've been struggling with. Maybe you're experiencing feelings of shame, guilt or inadequacy and this is preventing you from living the life you want. Counselling can bring clarity and understanding to what you're going through, and this in turn can lead to greater happiness, better relationships and the peace which comes from self-acceptance.
Training, qualifications & experience
- H.E. Diploma in Psychodynamic Counselling
- Level 3 Counselling Certificate (Person-Centred)
- 5 years of volunteering experience with The Samaritans
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.

Accredited Register Scheme
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).

Concessions offered for
Because of the current Covid19 crisis, I am offering therapy by telephone or videocall (Skype or Zoom) only, and am happy to work within whichever of these media work best for you. It is a way of working which I am experienced in, and my clients have found it can be as powerful and effective and working face-to-face.
Sessions are weekly and last 50 minutes
