Anne Gregory Regd.Member BACP (MBACP) Counselling&Psychotherapy/Education/Reiki
As an Integrative Counselling Psychotherapist, I did my initial training placement at Mind, where I still volunteer as both a counsellor & Therapeutic course facilitator.
Individual needs change over time, and so I believe in using a combination of theoretical approaches and techniques in my work with clients & draw from a variety of evidence based interventions that provide a unique bespoke service, tailored to your current & changing needs.
I have a passion for helping clients learn how to manage anxiety, depression, stress, low mood, negative thinking, self doubt, low confidence, self esteem and worry issues that are impacting on life & well-being.
I understand choosing the right counsellor is very important, and starting therapy can often be a difficult time. To make this easier, I offer a free initial appointment to discuss your specific counselling/psychotherapy needs, and for us to have the opportunity to meet & see if we feel we are a good fit for each other before booking any sessions.
Working together, we can use a combination of Mindfulness & Meditation & Compassion Focused Therapy, drawing from Person Centred Counselling, integrating CBT, and other approaches, dependent on your needs. This is all done as a gradual process, working at the pace that's right for you. This helps build your personal resilience and acceptance. The work we do is tailored around your needs and preferences for therapy, and designed to fully support and empower you. Transition through all life changes with support, adjusting to Grief & Loss & any difficulties in proactive ways.
If you feel I could help you then please contact me.
If you are interested in any of the other services I offer in addition to counselling and think they may be of benefit to you, please feel free to enquire, I will be happy to provide more details.
