Annie BroadbentTranspersonal counsellor
I work in a way that is tailored to meet the unique needs of each individual client. My core training is in Psychosynthesis, an integrative and transpersonal model of therapy. My holistic approach will look at what you experience through your mind, body and feelings and always holds space for what is trying to emerge through the presenting problem, as well as offering support for managing life's challenges.
I also see the past, present and ideas of the future as interrelated which enables me to support you whether you wish to explore how you were, how you are or how you would like to be.
I also work in a relational way, meaning I bring core values of compassion, respect and inclusiveness in to our work and will bring my own human-ness in to the space.
My main areas of specialisation and experience are with:
- perinatal mental health
- grief and bereavement
- depression & lack of meaning
- relationships & interpersonal skills
- workplace stress
- personal crisis
- anger & rage
- need for self-exploration/self-discovery
- low self-esteem
- coping with change
The first appointment is an opportunity for both of us to decide whether we wish to work together and, if so, negotiate a contract. I will ask you some questions about yourself, your history, what makes you seek therapy at this time in your life and your hopes from therapy. We will also discuss how I work, fees, confidentiality and the practical arrangements for working together.
