About me and my therapy practice

Hello, my name is Anna Planedin and my main approach is psychodynamic but I'm also trained in person-centred practice. I'm interested in helping people find relief and movement from a place of feeling 'stuck.' I specialize in working with loss, chronic pain, trauma, life transitions, shame and sex/sexuality. I view therapy as a process of helping others listen to their gut feelings, find safety and containment and feel less alone in overwhelming life experiences. It is my hope that through speaking about difficult or taboo feelings with me, you will feel understood and accepted, and that over time you feel more powerful in how you respond to difficulty.

Practice description

I work from a place of curiosity, compassion and openness. I draw from ten years as a social worker to bring an awareness of power and trauma-informed practice. Psychodynamically, I pay attention to unconscious relational processes between us and make links between what you're presently experiencing and what happened in the past. My person-centered roots involve bringing core conditions of empathy, acceptance and non-judgment.

I deeply enjoy witnessing my clients' processes as they find greater connection with themselves and others. Counselling is a dynamic relationship and I am grateful for the opportunity to continually learn from my clients. If you think I might be someone you can work with, please get in touch.

My first session
