Peace Anumah (Accred MBACP, BAATN), BA (Hons), MSc
In my practice, I create a safe space where my clients can feel relaxed and can openly speak, scream, cry, vent and charge forward with fierce determination to a more rewarding life. I offer a confidential, non-judgemental setting where individuals, couples and families can have time and space to explore and understand their thoughts and feelings, helping them navigate through the complexities of family life, work and relationship in general.
As a trauma informed therapist, I am aware of the complex impact trauma (any perceived trauma) has on a person’s suffering and how it shapes a person’s ability to cope. I also help clients whose childhood, bad relationships, bad experiences and over all past, affect their decisions and choices in having a fulfilling life. Don’t let the voice from the past ruin your present and future.
I offer counselling support to help clients – individuals, couples and families, to create a vision, set goals and time lines to encourage them to remain organised and focused on their journey to therapeutic healing and change. With my strategies, clients are able to realise and learn how thought processes (the negative self-talk) impact feelings and behaviours; how to resolve conflict and develop healthier ways of communicating.
I enjoy helping people; this is my innate and natural instinct. When a person is in need, like a knee-jerk reaction, I always offer a helping hand. I value personal growth and connection to clients, helping clients get “unstuck” by removing any barriers and roadblock inhibiting their passion.
Remember “Even flowers have to go through dirt” but just like flowers, you too can blossom into your own potential. Beautiful, empowered, fulfilled and unique.

Training, qualifications & experience
I have been in the field of mental health since 2004 and have sixteen years therapeutic experience with a wide range of clients from a variety of treatment settings. These have included providing therapy in a psychiatric hospital (USA), substance abuse and mental health centre (USA), court mandated (USA), and a well-known charity counselling organisation in the UK. I have also worked with a local authority in the UK supporting care experienced children and young people, advocating and championing their educational and therapeutically needs, as well as ensuring educational settings are trauma and attachment informed.
I hold a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and Sociology (Honours); a Master’s of science degree in Marriage and Family Therapy (Distinction). My practice incorporates research findings, skills learnt through training, and working as a Psychotherapist (Marriage and Family Therapist), along with my personal skills and talent in helping people.
As an accredited registered member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy), I have a diverse range of experiences for my clients. I am aware that no single approach will be right for every individual. I have therefore received training in a range of therapy such as Systemic therapy, Psychoanalysis/psychodynamic therapy, Attachment –based therapy, Solution-focused therapy, Family therapy, Couple therapy and Trauma informed care therapy.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy.

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.
