Are you experiencing emotional difficulties in your life? You may be finding yourself unhappily repeating unhelpful patterns or behaviours. You might feel disconnected from yourself, others or both.
My name is Maitena Anda and I believe I can help you.
Counselling Psychotherapy can provide a confidential time and place for you to explore events and issues in your life. Together we can examine your relationships, your thoughts, your feelings and anything that might be confusing, painful or worrying. Your trust will be received without judgement or prejudice.
My approach is one that validates people’s experience and feelings. As your Counsellor Psychotherapist, I’m committed to working alongside you to identify the changes that you would like to have happen and to work with you to improve your well-being. I am empathic and non-judgemental. I have a Post Graduate Diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy from Leeds Beckett University accredited by the BACP. I am qualified to Level 7 as an integrative relational Counsellor Psychotherapist. I have the knowledge and experience of several models of counselling and psychotherapy. I can integrate the most appropriate approaches to suit your individual needs. It was during my time as a Listener Volunteer for the Samaritans, providing support to people in crisis, that I realised Counselling Psychotherapy was my true calling.
I am a Registered Member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (MBACP Registered) and committed to working to the standards set out in the BACP Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling. I hold an Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) Certificate. Client information is protected following the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) guidelines.
