About me

Would you like to feel more positive and find some strategies that will help you to overcome the feelings that are holding you back? Anxiety, anger, depression, self-harming, panic attacks – the brain has many ways of dealing with stress. If you are struggling to cope or feeling overwhelmed, take that courageous first step and start talking. Whatever your reason for clicking on this link, I would like to support you in your learning and understanding of yourself.

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 work out ways to make your life better. If you are a parent, worried about your child, I can provide the space they need to feel more confident.

Asking for help can be difficult. I will do my best to make things as easy as possible for you once you have taken the leap.

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 there.

I work with adults, students, 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.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

There is a step up to the door. So depends on type of chair.
