Anne Glynn Counsellor/ Psychotherapist BACP Accredited
I am a BACP Accredited Counsellor/Psychotherapist and have worked with many clients who have sought help for a wide range of problems such as abuse, affairs, addiction,anxiety, bereavement, cultural difficulties, depression, divorce,gambling, infidelity, intrusive thoughts, difficulties in relationships, 'people pleasing', narcissism, sexuality and trauma.
I believe that talking to a perceptive and skilled listener can make a real difference. I also maintain that one of the most important factors in your therapy is the relationship you establish with your counsellor since, if it is one of trust and frankness, it can allow for a unique kind of exploration rarely possible outside of this situation. Therefore, I aim to offer you my undivided attention and will do my best to understand you, your inner world and the things which trouble or confuse you.
I work integratively which means that I draw from a range of therapeutic approaches but I am most influenced by psychodynamic ways of understanding distress. In other words, I will be interested to explore with you how the past may be affecting you in the present, how your original styles of attachment might influence current relationships, including the one you form with me, and the patterns which may be repeating in your life. The defences which you have developed to protect yourself will be of interest to me and we may consider how well these are serving you and to what extent they have become obstacles. I will respectfully challenge you where appropriate and will support you in the changes which you would like to make.
I offer face to face sessions and am also able to offer Skype counselling if appropriate.

If you decide to contact me to arrange an initial meeting I will ask you to provide me with some preliminary information by telephone or by email. This will allow me to gain some understanding of your particular difficulty and whether it is within my power to be of help to you or whether you may need more specialist support. I see the initial face to face session as an opportunity for you to decide whether you feel comfortable with me and for me to find out more about you and if and how I can help you. If we decide that further sessions should follow it will be your choice to opt for a set number of sessions or to proceed on an open ended basis.
