Annemarie Hawley PGDip, MBACP
Sometimes we all need someone to listen..
I have a PGDip in psychotherapeutic Counselling and I a member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (MBACP), and am bound by its Code of Ethics.
I am also a Spiritual Member and Children and Young People member of the BACP.
As a member of the BACP I offer an integrative counselling practice, which means that I use several different modalities, including Person Centred Theory, Attachment theory, ACT (Acceptance and Commitment therapy), CBT (Cognitive behavioural therapy) and others including Mindfulness and meditation. However I am client led, and that the therapeutic relationship that we establish together is the most important aspect of therapy.
I believe in a non-judgmental relationship, and by working together to find the most productive way for you to move forward and make sense of your life and it’s problems.
I provide both short term and open ended therapy. Short term therapy may be all you need if you are having problems with a particular issue, but if you have suffered with more complex issues, long term open ended therapy could be needed to help you move forward gently and safely.
Weekday and evening appointments are available Wednesday, Thursday and Fridays. Other times including weekends can be arranged.
I am also available for home visits if this is a specific requirement.
I have an up to date enhanced police safety check (DBS). I hold professional indemnity insurance and my work is supervised by a BACP approved supervisor.
