Counsellor – Ann Welsh
Adv Dip Couns, Reg MBACP
Hi, I’m Ann Welsh; I qualified as a Person-Centred Counsellor in 2011. Since then I have added many studies and methods to my counselling skills, and have had training in NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) and EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) amongst others. This enables me to work in integrative way from a person-centred core with whatever is best for you.
I have always worked in the ‘people’ sector, having provided trauma counselling for a major national bank, and also as a volunteer counselling clients in a Sexual Assault referral centre. I am a Registered Member of the BACP. I also undertake and deliver CPD (Continued Professional Development) as part of my counselling practice. I have regular supervision, as is the obligation for all Counsellors.
I feel it a unique honour to walk with clients on their path in their world and to help them gain self-respect, become empowered and find their courage within. I offer a warm, confidential relationship in a safe space to explore what feels right to the client. I am non-directive and non-advisory, believing that everyone is their own best expert.
I can help you to take your power back, in a confidential, non-judgmental, safe environment. I can help you dissolve those learned behaviours that are holding you back from allowing you to live your life to the full.
I am also a trainer, having gained a Teaching Certificate in 2010. I am passionate about sharing my learning with others in creative and supportive workshops. I have recently specialised in helping clients with weight problems explore their relationship with food / nourishment, without the need for self-abusive diets, tortuous scale hopping or traumatic tape measuring.
