Anna Disley BA (Hons), MBACP
The Lodge House
I am a professionally qualified counsellor and psychotherapist experienced in working with the main causes of emotional distress. I provide short term, long term and time limited counselling for clients facing those challenges and set backs in life that can be overwhelming such as depression, anxiety, bereavement, abuse, loss, loneliness, self harm, suicidal thoughts, anger, work related issues and relationship problems. I work from a client centred perspective adapting to the individual uniqueness of each client. I am passionate about the ability we all have to grow and to reach our potential.
I integrate person-centred, existential and phenomenological approaches seeing each individual as unique. I work with individuals of all ages 18 plus providing a non-judgemental, caring and safe environment to explore what is causing pain, concern or distress in your life. The main focus is on how you are feeling now giving the opportunity to explore, accept and release painful burdens and out of date feelings giving you the chance to live your life with hope and excitement for the future.
