Annika Hayes Reg.MBACP
Life can be challenging at times. You may be struggling with issues from your past that are having an impact on your life and relationships. You may be suffering from anxiety, depression, current work or relationship problems. You may not know exactly what is wrong, but you know that you want things to change for a more positive future.
I can offer a safe and confidential space in which to explore your issues, whatever they are. I work according to the person-centred model of counselling, offering a genuine and congruent space in which we can build a therapeutic relationship. I believe that each of us is our own expert and sometimes we just need someone alongside to bear witness to our experience, without judgement. My role is not to give advice or direction, but to offer the time and space for you to safely explore your issues.
In our first session we would explore a little of what is bringing you to counselling and I can explain how I work as a counsellor. We would agree when and how often to meet. It is usual to meet weekly, but I can be flexible.
I attend monthly supervision to ensure professional standards. I undertake continuing professional development to maintain and enhance my practice.
