A warm welcome to Anne Barber counselling and Psychotherapy. I have been a teacher/examiner for over twenty years in West Sussex, and have always been fascinated and curious about human behaviour.
I currently work as a Specialist Counsellor/Psychotherapist for the NHS in Oncology, based at the Royal Sussex County Hospital Brighton and the Princess Royal Hospital in Haywards Heath.
Alongside my teaching I decided to train as a TA Psychotherapist, I believe the power is in the relationship in the therapy room and we all have the capacity to change. We may all experience difficult periods in our lives, and together we can explore whatever is troubling you, and make sense of your distress.
I provide a safe, confidential, non-judgemental environment, where you can talk and explore your feelings.

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 Association for Transactional Analysis
UKATA (formally the Institute of Transactional Analysis) is the national UK Transactional Analysis organisation representing all fields of TA theory and practice. TA can be used as an effective tool in a wide range of contexts such as: personal development, management, coaching, counselling, psychotherapy, teaching, education, parenting and more.
