…After my marriage breakup, life seemed to spiral out of control and I discovered confiding in family was sometimes counter-productive. I was quite cynical about counselling but knew I needed to talk to someone outside my usual circle. It took a few attempts before I found someone I clicked with, and that was Anna. She was positive and practical and I relaxed enough in her company to pour my heart out. She gave me the space to find my own answers and I’d definitely recommend her as a strong, realistic woman of our time.
Anna is brilliant, went to her once around a year ago and then lost track, I finally went back for a few sessions a couple of months ago and now I can say I feel I owe her my life and my sanity. I can’t say how bad things were- physically, mentally and spiritually- I had lost everything; my relationship, my job, my health and all of my support. Anna did a first healing for me and we talked, she really helped me see things and gave me tools to change. I never felt judged or anything. she has a real connection to her Guides. Thank you so much Anna for giving me back my life and being so caring and supportive when I needed it most. “
I was so lucky to have Anna to help me through a very difficult time in my life. She is not only an experienced and professional Counsellor but a kind and caring person which instantly made me feel like everything was going to be ok. She has a very special gift and was, for me, a beaming light at the end of a very dark tunnel. I now count her among my blessings of life.
I initially saw Anna as my Counsellor. I had a lot of issues from my past that were preventing me from moving forward in my life. I felt very alone and was unsure if I could be helped as I had tried so many other avenues before. Thankfully Anna was different, she was not just a counsellor, and did not hmmm and raise eyebrows at my awkward bodily reactions to questions..instead she was warm and empathetic. .seemed genuinely interested and concerned with my life.
She had a number of tools we were able to utilise during the course of our sessions. One of these I found particularly invaluable, and still use today, this is EFT Emotional Freedom Techniques Therapy. It does exactly what it says on the tin! When I reached a stumbling block in therapy after unraveling so much trauma, EFT was the technique that removed the final memories of trauma from my cells. It was the perfect solution after talk therapy..this was a directed but free flowing technique where I could remove the final layers of pain. It seemed too easy at first… just tapping and talking… but with Anna’s help it really worked wonders for me! Best of all I can now use it myself, which I do religiously. Anna’s teaching of EFT has given me the emotional freedom I thought I would never have…and the technique to remain free. I can’t recommend Anna and EFT highly enough.
I would highly recommend Anna and the Counselling and Therapy Service she provides. Anna takes a professional yet endearing approach to her work environment and truly focuses on the client at hand.
I see the service as extremely client based throughout, reasonable and affordable fees, professional service in a down to earth comfortable environment created by Anna and her work.
I can’t say enough good things about Anna as a holistic counsellor, she helped me when no one else could get close, I could talk to her about anything and she just understands. I was on the edge a few time but she was a light at the end of the tunnel. I don’t understand half the things she does but they made such a difference, my sister recommended me to her and I wasn’t going to go, it was the hardest thing but I did it. If you aren’t sure, give it a go, you won’t regret it, I don’t and that says a lot .
I have struggled with my life at least since I was 8 years old. Over the years I have used self harm, food, drugs and unhealthy relationships as my coping mechanisms, always trying to find help and support but repeatedly failing. I had tried counselling, group therapy, the 12 steps and even a substance abuse clinic. Nothing seemed to help and I always ended up back with my old unhealthy and unhappy habits.
My sessions with Anna have literally been life changing. After 32 years of sadness my life has turned finally turned around. She helped me focus on myself and find my voice. I have taken control of my life and am so much better; a better mum, daughter, sister, wife and friend. I no longer have that darkness following me.
I truly can’t recommend Anna enough
Trust is something that does not come easily for me and Anna has been patient with me through this process. Her acceptance of who i am and where i am at, all my flaws, my darkness and my struggle to find a way out enabled me to begin a relationship with her with trust as the foundation. She continued to be non-judgemental, supportive and caring throughout the 18 months of us working together. Anna’s confidence in me and her belief that i had some value in the world began to sink in and i have started to believe this for myself. It has been rare in my life to find someone who belives in me and accepts me for all that i am and i feel i found this at your counselling service. Thank you from the bottom of my heart
I have been working with her for over a year and have found the sessions invaluable. The open, honest and supportive environment has enabled me to discover how to overcome anxieties and challenges in my life. I have been on a long journey from the first session and I can’t thank Anna enough for the help she has given me and would definitely recommend her therapy clinic. Do yourself a big favour, you are worth it and so am I
I have always felt safe and happy at counselling with Anna. I felt comfortable and in good hands. She has always been professional and kind to me. At the start I had the offer of extra sessions or telephone consultations, should I need them in between appointments.
When I first decided to try counselling I was at rock bottom. It was my very last resort, as I felt very ill mentally and physically. The health anxiety was cemented in my brain to a stage where the anxiety was so severe it was with me 24-7. I was suicidal. I could not go on feeling so ill. I feared each day. My head was full of things from when I was a child. I felt when I put my trust in people they let me down, to a stage where I could not trust anyone again. Until one day I picked up the phone and dialled the number I found on the internet.
That phone call I believe saved my life! The best thing I did.
On my first visit with Anna, my counsellor, I instantly felt relaxed. I off loaded a lot of what I was feeling. All the pain I had. I knew straight away I could trust her as she did not judge me. She understood me and listened to me. Finally I had someone there whom believed in me. She listened to me. Thank you
