About me

Hello and welcome to my profile!

I’m Anna, a qualified Person-Centred Counsellor, experienced in working with a range of mental health issues such as low mood, stress, identity, motivation and confidence (you can find the complete list below). I believe that seeking help is a sign of strength, which means that your being here and reading this is already an act of courage and a step towards feeling better. 

If you choose to work with me, I promise to provide a safe and comfortable space for you (be it face to face or online) where you will be able to explore your thoughts and your feelings, your history and your struggles, and get to know yourself, your needs and the person you truly are.

I am certain that with the right support, each individual has the power to facilitate change. If you feel misunderstood, lonely, hopeless or stuck, I want to be there for you, work alongside you and help you feel empowered instead of powerless. 

You can get in touch with me by booking an introductory call, emailing or sending me a text message. I am happy to answer any questions or simply have a chat to see how we get on. I reply to everybody within 24 hours. If you don't see my email, please check your spam.  

I’m looking forward to hearing from you!

  • Depression Counsellor Diploma 
  • Certificate in Understanding Children and Young People's Mental Health
  • Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling (CPCAB Level 4)
  • Certificate in Counselling Studies (CPCAB Level 3)
  • Certificate in Counselling Skills (CPCAB Level 2)

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Accredited register membership
