Anna Maplesden BA (Hons); Dip. CP; MBACP (Accred)
I am a qualified integrative therapist who holds a BA (Hons) in Counselling (1st) and an Advanced Diploma in Psychotherapy (Distinction).
I am an accredited and registered member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)
which demonstrates a professionally assessed and recognised level of training and practice.
I started my career in counselling in 2008 and have worked in a number of organisations with a diverse range of adult clients which includes a well-respected University;
a national charity running parenting workshops and with a hospice supporting family members who have suffered a bereavement.
Currently I work within the emergency services as a counsellor supporting staff with many issues that include stress; trauma; anxiety; depression; bereavement; low self esteem; relationships and abuse. I also write and facilitate general mental health awareness courses and wellbeing sessions tailored to groups.
In my private practice, I offer a welcoming and tranquil environment where you feel able to explore the difficulties that you face and decide if I would be the right counsellor to support you.
