Anne Gisby BSc.Hons MBACP Senior Accredited Counsellor
I am a BACP Senior Accredited counsellor and member of EMDR UK & Ireland, I have both training and registration as a pre and post adoption counsellor.
I offer face to face (some online)counselling and EMDR for individuals, both on a short or longer term basis.
I have been in practice for 20 years, my counselling approach is humanistic integrative, which reflects my belief that each person is unique and that given the right conditions has the potential to grow and move forward in their own way. I provide a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space in which individuals can share and explore present and past experiences, express thoughts and feelings and gain personal awareness.
EMDR is a specialised approach working simultaneously on mind, body and emotions. Along with CBT it is the NICE guidelines recommended treatment for trauma. EMDR is also widely used with depression, complex grief, panic, anxiety and to reduce stress reactions.
I have training and experience in Attachment Focused EMDR an approach to work therapeutically with early losses, relational and developmental trauma and abuse.
Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or would like to book an initial no-obligation appointment. I endeavour to build a therapeutic relationship and work with individuals in a way that meets their current needs.
