Hi my name is Anne and I am an Integrative Counsellor working privately in Lisna Aid Counselling Service. I focus on helping my clients to gain balance and a sense of control when they are overwhelmed and exhausted due to challenges in life which may be linked to Stress, Anxiety, Depression, Relationship Issues, or Grief. I also specialise in Chronic Heath Issues such as MS, ME/CFS and Fibromyalgia. I offer a confidential service and adapt therapy to suit your individual needs. Helping you find ways to apply coping strategies, develop self awareness and set goals for your future. This therapy will teach you to become your own therapist therefore when faced with challenges in the future you will be more able to cope and develop resilience
Sometimes you can become overwhelmed by things that feel out of your control and this can be a very lonely place. I can be contacted on the number or email provided and an appointment will be arranged. Your session will be held in a safe environment where there is no judgement and you will be made feel at ease knowing everything is confidential.
Chronic illness can be a difficult struggle and from my own personal experience I can help you find ways to manage your illness with specific coping strategies therefore improving your quality of life.
I provide workshops on stress and its impact on mental health and well-being both in the private and voluntary sector. This programme delivers stress management and techniques to help reduce stress both in work and home.

I am a registered member with BACP working towards my accredition. Working within their ethical guidelines.
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.
