About me

Hello, I’m Anna, a qualified and experienced therapist offering online and telephone therapy. 

Life can be challenging, the last couple of years in particular have affected us in ways we could never have imagined. Have you felt overwhelmed and at times unable to cope? That's okay, therapy can help. Through difficult times, opportunities for change and growth can emerge.

​Therapy can help minimise the negative impact difficult events and circumstances can have on your mental health, it can provide you with the tools to manage your feelings in a way that cultivates positive change and an improved sense of emotional wellbeing. Given the right environment and therapeutic support, I believe we all have the capacity to overcome life’s challenges.

​I can offer you a safe, confidential and compassionate space where you can explore your difficulties without judgement or criticism. I aim to understand your life story from your perspective, and working together we can find the right solutions to the issues you are facing in order to help you move forward with hope.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Further information

We are all unique and for that reason we connect with some people better than others. I believe it is important for you to find the right therapist and therefore I offer a free, no obligation 30 minute telephone consultation to help you make an informed decision.

​You can use this opportunity to share as much of your story as you feel comfortable, help me understand your reasons for seeking therapy and what you hope to gain from the process. I will also tell you about how I work, how I can best support you depending on your needs, and answer any questions you may have.

​To book your free consultation please call me on 07361 357 302 or email me.

I aim to respond to all enquiries within 24 hours. If I’m unable to answer your call, please leave a voicemail or send a text including your name, contact number and email address.

Please check your junk folder for my email response.
