The Walk & Talk Therapist

About me

I'm Annie, and I would like to introduce my outdoor counselling business based in Market Bosworth.

Movement of the body, and a shift in environment, can help us to think differently about aspects of our lives that have before seemed immovable. Aside from the obvious benefits associated with physical exercise, working therapeutically outdoors can help with feelings of being “stuck”, anxiety, stress or anger; plus the physical space and headspace that being outside provides releases endorphins and is generally mood-enhancing.

I offer support for ages 18+ and am also able to offer face to face, on-line and telephone sessions if you would prefer; maybe working outdoors is something that you would look to work towards in the future.

Being outdoors has so many therapeutic benefits, and in a time where there is so much uncertainty, a good walk can offer some great headspace and can feel like a great release of tension and endorphins.

Counselling can help unravel any negative or confusing feelings you may be experiencing in a safe and non-judgemental way.

You may feel that family and friends want to listen, help and advise, however, their advice will be based on their experiences and what would suit them and their lives... not you and yours.

If you think this approach feels like it would suit you,  or you have any questions, please get in touch via e-mail or leave me a voice message on 07709 967731. (*** please note that if you e-mail me, I encourage you to please check both your Inbox and your Spam/Junk Folders for my response***)

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
