Anne-Marie Cooper-KilroyPsychodynamic counsellor
Hello, thank you for reading my profile. I am a BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) registered counsellor working face to face and online with clients who feel that they need extra emotional support in their lives. I see clients with a variety of problems and have a specialism working with clients dealing with anxiety, depression, life changes and loss.
My foundations in psychodynamic counselling means that, not only will we talk about what is happening now, but we will also talk about your previous life experiences and explore how what is happening now may have originated in your younger years.
How might I help you? Everybody has problems, but for some working through them is more challenging than for others; perhaps because of an early childhood experience or trauma, or a relationship problem, or a feeling of sadness that might feel too hard or frightening to unpack alone. I can help.
It’s ok not to be ok, but you don’t have to be alone with your struggle. Counselling will help you make meaning of how and why you are feeling the way you do and enable you to move forward with resilience and confidence.
It is really important that we feel comfortable working together, please get in touch and we will talk about how we are going to support you. Thank you.
Alongside my private practice, I also carry out volunteer work with bereaved families at a hospice in Bedford. While the work is challenging, I feel privileged to be able to support families through their grief and the changes that they face.
