Anna Westropp. MA, ADip, PGDip, PGCert. MBACP. UKCP Accredited
I am a fully qualified and accredited Integrative Psychotherapist with experience working with a diverse range of individuals. Being integrative means I work by combining and integrating different techniques and approaches so that I can tailor the therapy to suit your individual needs.
It is a courageous step to reach out when life feels challenging, you can trust that within our therapy it will be at your pace, with a focus on 'we' working together, rather than 'you' on your own, in a safe and non-judgmental space.
My commitment is to support you from the moment we meet; to be dedicated to our work together, transparent about how I am working with you and give you the opportunity to express yourself freely. Through the process my aim is for you to gain confidence, personal insight, growth and empowerment to make the changes you need to move forward in your life.
I work around you whether that means short term or longer term therapy. However, I encourage clients to meet for a 6 week period, before committing to longer term therapy to ensure you feel it is right for you.
If you are interested in beginning therapy please drop me an email and I will send you further details about an initial meeting.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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.
UK Council for Psychotherapy
The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.
As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.
UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
