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 to provide a uniquely 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 & wellbeing.
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 & Meditations & Compassion Focused Therapy, amongst other approaches, to help build personal resilience, acceptance, and to empower you in transition through all life changes, Grief & Loss & any difficulties.
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.
