About me

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.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a Law degree and trained as a Barrister.

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.
