Anna Batey (Registered MNCS Accred)
20 Mannamead Road
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 am an experienced counsellor practicing 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.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a qualified counsellor with an Advanced Diploma in Counselling, accredited by the National Counselling Society, and a BSc Honours degree in Psychology, (University of Plymouth 1996).
I am ASIST (Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training) trained.
Since 2016 I have worked as a volunteer counsellor with Pregnancy Crisis Care in Plymouth, providing counselling for women and their partners who have experienced the loss of a baby and other pregnancy related issues.
Prior to qualifying as a counsellor I worked for 15 years supporting adults, families and young people in school and community settings throughout Devon.

Other areas of counselling I deal with
I am reluctant to provide a definitive list of areas I can help with. I have worked with a range of clients with a broad diversity of issues. Sometimes, what troubles us may not fall into a clear category, or have a diagnostic label, and I see no issue as too big, or too small. Please feel free to contact me to discuss your needs.
If I feel I am not the right person to help you, I will assist you to find someone who can.
I charge £40 per 60 minute session.
I offer a free 30 minute initial consultation, where we can discuss why you are seeking support and how I might be able to help you.
Concession: I offer a reduced fee of £30 per session for trainee counsellors.
