Annette Hill Dip. Accredited BACP
Currently I am able to offer face to face counselling, telephone or On Line Counselling.
I am a experienced Integrative Counsellor. I run a successful private practice working with both adults and young people (aged 14 upwards) who have difficulties with Stress, Relationships (Separation and Divorce), Anxiety, Abuse (Mental and Sexual), Bereavement and loss, Isolation, Self Harm, Suicidal Ideation, Anger Management, Depression, Eating Disorders and Low Self Esteem. I am also experienced in working with adults and young people who come under the Autistic Spectrum and other conditions e.g. ADHD, Oppositional Behaviour and Tourette's Syndrome.
At times in our lives, we may feel we are at a crisis point and have an overpowering feeling that life has become a struggle and we find it difficult to cope.
We may experience emotions and situations that we cannot make sense of and can often feel: Lost, Confused, Isolated, Depressed, Stressed, Angry, Frustrated, Fearful, Terrified or even Suicidal.
This is where counselling can help! Counselling provides a Safe, Confidential Environment where no judgements are made.
It allows you space and time to talk and explore how you are feeling and how to handle the many issues that life throws at you. Counselling can help us move on in life with valuable insight, understanding and growth.
I work with individuals either open-ended basis or for an agreed time period, with the aim of enabling you to enhance your life and to live it more fully.

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.
