Annie Rankin, MBACP, DipCouns, CNVC, BFA
I offer counselling and empathic listening to individuals and couples. Through genuine relating, I hope to create a climate in which greater awareness, clarity and self-acceptance emerges. My approach is Humanistic and Integrative, drawing on a variety of models and processes. I have been teaching & supporting others in Compassionate Communication and Conflict Resolution for 12 years, and this informs my Counselling practice. I also teach Focusing, a body-based meditative way of listening to ourselves, which softens self-judgement and eases inner conflict. A key interest currently is helping people to release bodily-held trauma.
I work with long- and short-term clients, usually once a week. I see a benefit in committing to the work regularly, and I value being flexible - responding individually to each person's issues and circumstances. I'm also an experienced mediator, to free up deadlock and build harmony.
