I'm Annie an integrative MBACP therapist based in London and St Albans. This means I use a range of both traditional and modern approaches in therapy. I have extensive experience in Law and the media industry as well as in counselling and psychotherapy. My background means I work with many professionals who navigate life's challenges around work and relationships. Sometimes clients have a specific need such as anxiety/stress at work or relationship breakdowns or feel depressed. Sometimes it may be a long standing issue. Or sometimes clients simply just feel something isn't right. It might be feeling overwhelmed or alternatively underwhelmed or flat.
I provide a safe place face to face in a beautiful Edwardian home alternatively I work face to face in London. Many of my clients prefer to see me on zoom both international clients and those that are time short and fine online therapy easier to fit into their time limited office days. Often this safe space can act as an anchor each week which can be very supportive. Sometimes it is difficult to talk to even the closes of friends or family.
My clients find that the work we do together can provide the bridge between where they are now and where they want to be.

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.
