Penny Flowers MBACP, Dip H E, Life Counselling and Hypnotherapy.
I am an Anxiety Specialist. I cover the areas of Harlow, Ware, Braintree, Bishops Stortford, Epping and surrounding areas.
I studied at Anglia Ruskin University in Chelmsford, I adhere to the BACP Ethics and Principles. I have experience in working with Bereavement at St Francis Hospice in Havering atta Bower and have worked in women refuges/colleges and private practice.
I became interested in counselling and attended an introduction course at Epping Forest College, since then I haven't looked back. I take an holistic approach to every day life, I feel we all have the answers in us we may need a little support to find our voice.
I have searched high and low for mine, it took a few years to find and now I find myself supporting others to do the same, it's an amazing position to be in. I had an amazing counsellor years ago who made a huge difference in how I perceived myself and the world around me. One word, one change of perception, one decision can change your life for the better. It changed mine and I'm very happy to be able to accompany you on your journey of self.
I also offer hypnotherapy and specialise in Anxiety for adults and children. I am a Calm Kids Coach specialising in Exam stress and Anxiety.

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).
