About

It takes courage to contact a Counsellor for the first time you may be feeling stuck or overwhelmed, needing to make sense or gain clarity of your personal issues. As an experienced Professional Counsellor, I provide a safe, non-judgemental and confidential space. A place where you can explore the changes "you want". Building resilience and strategies to cope with relationship or work issues, such as stress, anxiety, depression, bereavement, low self-esteem, bullying, or stressful health challenges. Short & long-term therapy 9am -7pm + Sat mornings. A calm comfortable garden studio or outdoors and online during Covid19.
As an Integrative Counsellor, I draw upon a range of approaches, including Person Centred, Psychodynamic, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) EMDR and Mindfulness. I tailor therapy to meet client's individual needs. I offer an introductory 15 minute telephone call, to assess your needs, following that we can meet in my office, online via Zoom or outdoors.
Personally, I know what it's like to make that first call to see a counsellor, a big step. I am passionate about my work, aiming to enhance your resilience and wellbeing. An experienced clinician, I have worked in the NHS as Senior Nurse and Midwife, mainly women's health gynae, IVF and cancer. Call or email and we can arrange an introduction session.

Annie Ford's Groups

Supervision Group

As a counsellor, group supervision offers an opportunity to grow and flourish in your practice. I offer 1 hour 1:1 work or 3 hour sessions for 3 Counsellors. An opportunity to share your professional experiences. I believe all professionals, particularly those working with people require a facilitated space to reflect upon their professional practice. I provide 1:1 and group supervision where issues can be raised in a supportive non judgmental environment. Supervision can provide a place for high levels of support enhanced self awareness and challenge.
