Available for regular sessions on Mondays-Wednesdays. For urgent work during the pandemic, I can be available for one-off sessions outside these days.
About me and my therapy practice
When we face indecision, confusion, sorrow, pain, anxiety, anger - all that it is to be human - often our instinctive reaction is to turn away from the feelings; to try to escape from them or to brave them out, telling ourselves, "I'll deal with this on my own". We can become very adept at escaping, through work, exercise, relationships, alcohol, substances, so many options - some more socially acceptable than others!
The more we practice our chosen method of escape, the sense of brave independence hardens into isolation, where we shut down the parts of ourselves that feel love and joy, and disconnect from those around us.
As an integrative psychotherapist and drama and movement therapist, my treatment plan and therapeutic approach are geared towards what the individual client needs. I have a background in working with clients experiencing intense crisis, combining creative tools with a cognitive approach.
I work in a collaborative, relational way, and where useful, share my intervention processes with the client - to become a fellow explorer of the client's past and present, so as to clear the trodden path and begin to shape a new future.
I offer a free confidential phone or video call if you would like to connect while deciding whether to book an initial consultation.
What you seek is seeking you - Rumi
Currently all sessions are online via Zoom. After our initial phone call, I send you a link to click on at the session time and welcome you into my practice room.
During the pandemic, I am offering clients additional support in the form of more regular communication via secure applications, and videos to use between sessions, such as relaxation, meditation or movement practices from the session. I share emotional wellbeing posts on my Facebook page @AnnaRose.Psych
