Anne McLain, Dip. Couns., Reg MBACP
New Year - same difficulties? Covid and lockdown seems to be never-ending but there may be other things in your life that are also becoming a problem. You may be finding old anxieties resurfacing, perhaps mixing with new worries and an increased feeling that you are struggling to cope – life can be overwhelming. Anxiety, anger, depression, loneliness, self-harming, panic attacks – these are all normal reactions to stressful situations. That applies to children too. Whatever your reason for clicking on this link, you don’t have to face your feelings alone. I would like to help you - or your loved one - discover a more positive future.
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).
