Msc, CTA, PGCDipCouns, PractNLP, RegisteredMBACP (Accred)

Hello and welcome! I provide online and face-to-face therapy and counselling services for individuals over 18 years of age from a diverse range of backgrounds, cultures, occupations and ages.

I am a fully qualified, Registered and BACP Accredited psychotherapist and counsellor with over 10 years’ experience as a private therapist. I hold a Masters Degree in Transactional Analysis Psychotherapy, a PostGraduate Clinical Diploma in Counselling, am a Certified Transactional Analyst and an NLP Practitioner.

Throughout my counselling career I have integrated various theories and techniques into my approach, this gives me greater flexibility in how I respond to you as a counsellor. I strongly believe there is no set formula for recovery or improved wellbeing and will draw on a variety of methods to meet the needs of each individual. As an experienced, caring, professional counsellor I offer confidential sessions at my private practice near Loughborough. I am committed to working inclusively with a diverse range of people over the age of 18.

If you think I might be able to help you, then I encourage you to set up a call with me and let’s talk.

"In coming to see Ann, I have been able to come to terms with certain issues and now I feel as though my life is back on track. Don't be scared - trying therapy might sound daunting but it really does help."

– Brian, 26

"Feeling completely safe, feeling that no matter what is happening in my life or how I am feeling, that in this room I will not be judged, just helped. "

– Dionne, 25

"I feel more confident about myself and don't put myself down any more. I honestly can't pinpoint one thing. It really has changed my perceptions and helped me to understand othr people more as well."

–  Charlie, 24

"I have learned to manage my anxiety and apply skills and techniques to do that now and long term. You don't realise what things can be addressed and resolved until you try. Be open-minded and take the plunge!"

– Hannah, 30

"I was put completely at ease, therefore I found it very easy to open up and talk about everything. In my first few visits I felt I had cleared my head and began to feel better and more positive."

– Helen, 63

"Overall I have become a relaxed individual. I feel like I've not just overcome a problem but I have become a much more complete individual from the experience, something which took me by surprise."

– Jamie, 24

"I was able to talk in a confidential, comfortable environment where I could understand that my feelings and thoughts were OK."

– Joanne, 27

"It has been invaluable, allowing me to move forward in my life, helping me understand so much and helping me let go of the past and grow as a person."

– Jenny, 35

"I truly believed I would never get over what had happened and feel happy again. Talking to you made me realise that what I was feeling was normal. It took a while but I think I have made it."

– TL, 50

"I am kinder to myself and allow myself to feel a range of emotions. I now feel in control of my life and I am looking forward to the future."

– Mary, 36

"I no longer lose my temper to my and other people's detriment. I am no longer a negative thinker about myself and life."

– Mark, 32

"Made me look at my life and I have realised that I can make a new start and have a new "normal" for my future. I always felt comfortable telling you intimate things and knew you would not judge."
