Feedback from previous clients...
"Ann helped me to get back into the workplace by dispelling negative thoughts, building my confidence and helping me to believe in myself again."
"Ann has genuinely changed my outlook on life and I don’t know where I would be without her support and care over the last 9 months."
I have a Masters degree in Counselling and Psychotherapy Practice and am an Accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
Previous qualifications include:
Higher Educational Diploma in Psychodynamic Counselling
Certificate in Counselling Studies - level 3, person centred
Continuing Professional Development (short courses) in:
Diversity and Difference
Croydon Counselling Foundation - long term (up to 3 year contracts) psychodynamic counselling
Care to Listen Counselling, - short-term integrative counselling, mainly to NHS IAPT clients.
Samaritans - 5+ years as a listening volunteer with this amazing charity which provides 24/7 listening support to anyone in distress or despair.
Before retraining as a counsellor I worked in a wide range of industries and organisations, from home-grown start-ups to global blue-chip corporates. I believe my varied work and life experiences have given me valuable insight into the the toll that work and life demands can take on mental health.
