About me

If you find that life feels like there is something missing and your confidence to trust your decisions is left to others for fear of getting it wrong,  I can help you to  to build a trust in yourself to make your own decisions without fear of judgement or blame and to rediscover your fun side, where life becomes brighter.

I can help you to understand why you may be sabotaging certain aspects of your life, like your dreams, your Health and even your relationships. Understanding that part of you, will give you back control and enable you to remove the obstacles standing in your way.

Together we can open a pathway to a more positive perspective of yourself that leads to a more fulfilling life.

I offer a warm friendly welcome where you can speak freely and safely and you are accepted without judgement. Your confidentiality will be assured within the terms of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) of which I am a member. I am DBS checked and I am fully insured.

I can draw upon Person Centred, Psychodynamic and Gestalt with creative techniques to maximise and enhance your Counselling Experience.

Please contact me for an informal chat, if after speaking, you would like to take the next step then we can agree a suitable time where we can have an hour long counselling session to discuss the matter in detail. I look forward to hearing from you by phone, text or email. Annette

Member organisations


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.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

I can help adults who have experienced a challenging childhood.

The child we once were doesn't disappear, they still exist within us.

I can work creatively to help you to reconnect and build an understanding with your child within, this can enable you to discover a more fulfilling life and relationship with You.

This type of therapy alters the way we speak to ourselves, we become more conscious of our own needs leading to a much more positive view of ourselves,

My clients describe this type of counselling as powerful and liberating.
