Anna Brookfield - Prof.Dip. Counselling & Psychotherapy MNCS(Acc)
Hi, I'm Anna. I am a calm and down to earth person offering counselling in a peaceful and relaxing location on our farm, with lovely views over the countryside.
Our lives are impacted and influenced by many different things e.g past experiences, health, relationships, work, bereavement and loss, life stages and changes etc. Sometimes this feels ok and manageable but at others, life seems to be a bit more of a struggle. As a counsellor, I will work with you to explore how you are feeling and work out if there are ways you can feel more content and settled.
We can often feel a bit caught between 'being how we think we should be', and 'being what feels true to ourselves'. Counselling can help you work out what is important to you, allowing you to feel more authentic and live a life that feels more comfortable, whilst also acknowledging the challenges we have to live with.
My approach is integrative which means I have a range of skills which allows me to be flexible to hopefully meet the needs of most clients.
