Annette Lilley - Counselling & Mindfulness (Reg. MBACP)
At times life can be difficult and we can feel stressed, anxious and overwhelmed by our experiences, situations and relationships. By understanding why you think, feel and behave as you do you can then start to make positive changes leading to an increase in peace, contentment and happiness. Counselling is a unique relationship built on trust and honesty that can help you to understand more about yourself as well as find solutions to the things you are finding difficult.
I have 11 years experience of working with teenagers and adults to bring about positive changes in mood and behaviour. My approach to counselling means that I can be flexible in the way that I work with you depending on your preferences and personal goals. I am trained in Integrative Counselling and this means I combine different approaches depending on your needs. My approach to counselling combines Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Psychodynamic and Person Centred Therapy as well as Mindfulness.
I have experience of working with people with a diagnosis of Aspergers and ADHD. I am particularly interested in working with people that are experiencing anxiety, panic, low mood, depression and stress.
