Carrie-Anne Heath BAHons - MBACP ACCRED (Registered) - SNR. ACCRED MNCS.
*Proud to be an inclusive friendly therapist*
LGBTQ+ cis ally. (Pronouns: She/ Her).
About Me and my Background:
I am an accredited and experienced integrative counsellor / psychotherapist and therapeutic supervisor. I can work using several different modalities including DIT ( Dynamic Interpersonal Therapy), and work using core modalities such as CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy), Humanistic theory and Psychodynamic theory.
I’m trained in both long term and short-term therapeutic settings, as well as using online therapies or resources, telephone counselling and using services such as Skype or Zoom. I also work using mediums such as email to help work with and support those who may be hard of hearing or have accessibility issues.
I have been working in the industry since 2007 and have an extensive history of working with a large diversity of clients including children, adolescents and adults. I am an experienced CAMHS therapist, as well as working with adults within both the private and public sector. I have experience working within the NHS IAPT sector, including working with long- term health conditions, working within the crisis intervention sector, as well as working alongside specialist services including the armed forces and ex-offender services.
I have experience working with key workers and frontline staff throughout the Covid19 pandemic, as well as working with communities affected by distressing and traumatic events.
Through my career I have set up multiple charity based support groups and services, including services for refugees, personality disorders, and groups for those hearing voices. I have appeared in several media campaigns regarding mental health and have held radio and TV interviews with news channels.
I understand the past year may have particularly left feelings of isolation, sadness and anxiety amongst other things and its completely understandable to feel overwhelmed and not sure what to do with these feelings. I'm a big advocate for normalising and validating our own personal experiences, and equally, I am passionate about supporting people through their issues.
I fully appreciate how difficult it can be to open up to others about how you are truly feeling and would like to reassure you that I have a strong ethos in ensuring a safe , warm and accessible environment for all my clients.
Please do feel free to get in touch if you have any questions or queries.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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.
