Anneka Barrett MA, PG Dip, MBACP
Hello, if you are here I'm guessing you are feeling something isn't right in your world. Maybe you feel it physically? Like the weight of the world is bearing down on you. Perhaps life doesn't seem as colourful as it once was? You are not alone. Counselling is a safe, private space for you to dive deeper into those feelings and thoughts, I'll be there with you every step of the way. I can't fix your problem, but, I truly believe I can empower and support you to find the answers you are looking for. I like to be guided by you, making our sessions bespoke to your needs.
A typical session would last 50 minutes, we would explore whatever it is that's brought you here. I am very much guided by you and what you are looking to explore.
Reaching out is the hardest part, it can be scary, I want to encourage you to be bold, this is your first step to finding the change you want to make. I offer a free 20 minute phone consultation initially to see if we want to work together. If you don't think I'm right for you I'm happy to support you to find someone who is. Email or call whenever.
Training, qualifications & experience
I trained at the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow completing my diploma in 2007. Since then I have worked in a number of face to face counselling roles and well as a phone Counsellor for Childline. My work took me into the corporate world for a time where my focus was with anxiety, work life balance and stress management. I now run a general private practice, I work with people from all walks of life and with a variety of challenges.
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.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
