About me

How Counselling Can Help

Hello, my name is Annelaine, and I am very passionate about helping all individuals, from all walks of life, to gain control back into their lives, be able to use their own initiative and make decisions for themselves. When all of us reach a low point within our lives it can make us feel vulnerable and enhance feelings of insecurity. Here is where I would like the opportunity to unravel and explore alongside of you, any issues you may be facing, from: Anxiety; Depression; Relationship Issues; Work Related Stress; Trauma; feelings of Low Self-Worth; Confidence Issues and much more, so you can have a better understanding of what is going on for you and be able to put these into perspective. I want to then, be able to offer you coping mechanisms and strategies in moving forward, feeling freer within yourselves, to enjoy life more, without either past or present negative thoughts, feelings and emotions standing in the way. I also want to help you, to understand and manage these powerful normal reactions, that can be distorted through many different issues we face daily. Such as, hectic lifestyles that have been thrust upon us from a very fast-moving world, with lots of demands and constant changes which are ongoing and unsettling. These can both be historical or present and rearrange them together in a more productive and healthier way in moving forward.

Member organisations


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
