About me

Hi, my name is Anne. I have been a counsellor for 21 years and supervisor for 11 years, working with adults, couples, young people and children. My focus is very much on the client's needs and working at your pace, in a caring and safe way, looking at a wide range of short term, on-going and/or long term issues around trauma, stress, anxiety, phobias etc. which can affect your everyday life.

I am also an Accredited Certified EFT Practitioner, which is known as a tapping tool, that can help you to overcome and let go of negative beliefs, emotions and thought patterns, reduce anxiety over exams/driving test etc., chronic pain, cravings, phobias, past trauma, etc. that allows you to feel more relaxed and more able to cope with every day life.

I have extensive knowledge and experience of working with past historical issues, however big or small and I can help you to overcome the issues that are still affecting you.

With regards to the current Covid-19 situation, I am still accepting new clients and am offering phone and video sessions via Zoom.  This will be ongoing for the foreseeable future.

I am a Registered Member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapists (BACP), a Member of the British Psychological Society (BPS) and a Member of EFT International.

Member organisations


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.
