Anna Batey (Registered MNCS Accredited)
6 Gleneagle Avenue
I'm an experienced counsellor working with clients with a broad range of issues, including anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, stress, grief, loss and general sadness.
I have particular experience of working with women who have endured pregnancy related issues including infertility, pregnancy anxiety, traumatic birth, PTSD, miscarriage, still birth and abortion. This also includes working with couples, if appropriate.
There are times in our lives when we need to make sense of what is happening and how we are feeling. I understand that it can be hard to seek help and I offer a safe, confidential and welcoming space, where you will be met with warmth and respect. I practice from a therapy room at Mannamead in Plymouth, supporting individuals who are experiencing difficulties in their lives and want to make positive changes and improvements.
My work uses an integrative approach, which combines Person Centred Therapy, with techniques from Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Gestalt Therapy and Mindfulness. This means I can draw from different approaches to offer you the counselling that will be best suited to you, and your needs, as a unique individual.
