Heather Anderson MA Adv Dip CBT PG Dip Clinical Supervision registered MBACP
I have been a counsellor now for over 10 years. I mainly work with adults however I have experience of working with young children ( I worked as a therapist in a primary school for 7 years), teenagers ( I worked as a therapist with teenagers in care for 3 years), families and adults. I worked with C.A.N. for 2 years, Northampton hospital bereavement service and Northampton University as a counsellor. As well as this I have worked for the past 7 years with the BMA counselling its members. I try to keep my prices affordable so that people are more able to access counselling. Life can be quite a challenge at times, and when stress levels reach the point where you feel completely overwhelmed, it usually doesn't only affect your personal life but also your health, your well-being, your performance at work and your quality of life.
I offer support and assistance to clients who experience difficulties in handling personal and work related problems, clients who have been exposed to severe trauma, or who have trouble coping with change and anxiety.
Counselling is an effective way to provide you with insights into the way you behave in certain situations.
I am a humanistic counsellor, and work in a person centred way.

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.
