Anna Clifford - Psychotherapist MBACP, PG Dip.Couns.
How counselling can help:
The reasons leading you to counselling may be long-term difficulties which affect your relationships, or you may be struggling to adapt to a sudden change, such as bereavement. Equally, you may just feel that you are searching to reach your potential and would like to explore ways to achieve this, in a supportive and non-judgemental space.
I work collaboratively and with empathy, with the focus on understanding where you are now, as well as where you would like to be. I work from an integrative framework, which means I draw on several psychotherapy approaches to suit the needs of a presenting issue and how a person relates to themselves and the world, reflecting the diversity of our experiences. Our sessions can help you understand how you have developed a pattern of self-beliefs which hold you back or lead to feelings of insecurity and inadequacy. We will focus on helping you to think for yourself, and about yourself, differently.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am an experienced, qualified Psychotherapist and a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy. Alongside counselling private clients, I have worked for the NHS, counselling clients with concerns ranging from anxiety and family difficulties, to PTSD. I have worked extensively with people who have experienced domestic- and/or sexual abuse, using trauma-informed approaches to develop resilience and a new sense of identity.
I also have 12 years' experience of delivering motivational interviewing with people struggling with addictions, anger management difficulties and low self-esteem. I understand how difficult change can be and I am experienced at helping people to identify the most effective strategies to overcome their personal obstacles to change.
I am experienced at working with the following issues:
Anxiety, depression, panic attacks, low self-esteem, anger management difficulties, bereavement and loss (including relationship break-down), addictions, LGBTI and sexual identity, self-harm and suicidal thoughts, survivors of domestic/sexual abuse.
Choosing to enter counselling can seem a daunting prospect and I understand the importance of feeling comfortable in the relationship with your counsellor.
