Anna Canetty-Clarke - MBACP Counsellor
Working from a healthcare clinic in Hawkhurst I offer a calm and confidential space where you can come and share your thoughts and concerns and be listened to. My hope is that by working together and building a trusting relationship that you will come to understand yourself better and that I can support you to achieve the change you are looking for.
My training enables me to help you understand what's going on in your life and to refocus. Together we will look at things like your relationships with others, your sense of self, your body’s response to emotion and stress, and your life goals. I also use mindfulness as a part of my approach- this is a way of achieving a greater awareness and acceptance of yourself and what is around you.
As adults and children we are motivated to fulfil our potential but things often get in the way and divert us off course. Sometimes we discover that we have developed ways of being that no longer help us or beliefs that limit us and that we want to change. We might find this in our relationships with others, in the way we deal with different situations or we might just find that it is our sense of self that doesn’t feel quite right. If this is the case for you then I would like to help.

I charge £45 for a session which lasts 50 minutes and offer a limited number of concession spaces.
I offer a 30 minute introductory session for £20 as a two way assessment to see if we feel comfortable with each other and for me to ensure that I am the right person for you to see.
Payment can be either cash or by Bacs payment on the day of the session.
With young children I work in a different and more collaborative way, with parents, teachers or carers; working to find the best possible way to support a child. This means that the first meeting usually includes parents or whoever is caring for the child. When working with younger children, although sessions are confidential, I like to keep an open line of communication with families throughout. My approach with children is mainly through creative work to help them express different experiences and feelings.
