Anne McLain, Dip. Couns., Reg MBACP
We all started the year in different places, experiencing our own lives in our own ways – some good, some less so. If you had worries before Covid 19, they probably haven’t gone away and as lock-down begins to ease, you might be feeling your anxiety rise. Uncertainty and a lack of control can leave you feeling overwhelmed, perhaps even scared. Are you struggling to cope? Need someone to talk to? Feeling angry, lonely, self-harming, having panic attacks? Not connecting with others? Are you looking to make a change, but you are not sure where to begin? Whatever your reason for having clicked on this link, I would like to help you.
My name is Annie and I am not here to judge you. I will listen and hear you. My focus is on being able to build a genuine relationship in which you feel comfortable enough to explore what you want and who you are. I would like to help you figure out a way to make your life better.
I am a fully qualified, person-centred counsellor, which means that you decide what you want to bring to each session, and we move forward together from that point. I have worked with adults, young people and children from a variety of different backgrounds and with a rainbow of individual needs (including SEN). I hope to be able to meet with you soon.

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.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
