My name is Anna and I am an integrative therapeutic counsellor. I have always been passionate about people, their stories and unique personalities, hence why I decided to become a counsellor. I know that it takes a lot of courage to reach out for help and that it can sometimes be quite overwhelming. I can offer you a safe, non-judgmental and supportive space, so you can comfortably explore your issues.
In my work with clients, I combine three therapeutic approaches: Person Centred Theory, Transactional Analysis and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. I use different techniques and methods, depending on the person and the issue I am working with.
I am a registered member of the BACP and a graduated member of BPS. I attend regular Continuous Professional Development (CPD) workshops to keep my knowledge and skills up to date and I meet regularly with my supervisor to support and review my work. I hold a subscription to the government DBS service which is current and up to date.
Please feel free to contact me for a free initial phone consultation. Alternatively, you can visit my website for more information: www.integracounselling.co.uk
I look forward to meeting you and being a part of your journey!

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

Individual sessions cost £50 and last 50 minutes. Reduced rate sessions for students are available.
