Who am I?
It’s always good to get to know a bit about your counsellor before you dive in.
Firstly, I’m Ann, and I’ll be your therapist when you start your journey with me. I’m a warm, approachable and understanding professional.
What training have I had?
In terms of accreditation, I’m trained to the highest standard of Counselling (Psychotherapy) with up to date thinking in the Person Centered Therapeutic approach and Integrative Therapy. Also Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT).
As well as this, I’m also a member of the National Counselling Society and adhere to the associations’ ethical framework for good practice to maximise your safety and wellbeing.
Who have I worked with?
I lecture counselling at a local college under the Counselling and Psychotherapy Central Awarding Body CPCAB www.cpcab.co.uk/ allowing others to understand more about counselling and how it can alter people’s lives.
I teach at a mental health college supporting students through their journey to recovery in Nottingham www.nottinghamshirehealth.nhs.uk.
I have worked as an Advocate for a well known national children’s organisation and work with children who are victims and witnesses of crime through the court procedure.
I’ve worked with clients suffering from issues such as:
- Domestic Violence
- Low mood
- Trust & acceptance
- And relationships
I’ve always found that the best way to be with clients is supportive, nurturing and patient. This has been reflected in the feedback I’ve had, and the guidance I’ve been able to give.
I have found happiness and peace, my self-esteem and self-worth have grown over the past twelve months after having worked with Ann.
