Annette Hill Dip. MBACP
I am a mature and experienced Integrative Counsellor. I run a successful private practice working with adults and young people (aged 14 upwards) who have difficulties with Stress, Relationships (Separation and Divorce), Anxiety, Abuse (Mental and Sexual), Bereavement, 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.
