About me and my therapy practice
My name is Peace Anumah, and I have been working in the mental health field since 2004, with over fourteen years of experience in the counselling/therapy field.
My private practice is Piece into Peace (www.pieceintopeace.com)
I have a range of experience working with children, adolescents and adults. I am used to working with people from diverse backgrounds and have worked within Psychiatric hospitals, statutory organisations, the corporate world and the voluntary sector.
Having trained and worked in the United States of America and with a member of the Ackerman institute as my mentor, I bring a wealth of cross-cultural expertise.
I use a combination of different therapeutic approaches such as Client-centred; CBT; Psychodynamic; Systemic; Narrative, and Solution-focused.
In my practice, I create a safe space where my clients can feel relaxed and openly speak, scream, cry, vent and charge forward with a fierce determination to a more rewarding life. I offer a confidential, non-judgemental space where individuals, couples and families can have time and space to explore and understand their thoughts and feelings, helping them navigate the complexities of family life, work, relationships, etc.
As a trauma-informed therapist, I know the complex impact trauma (any perceived trauma) has on a person’s suffering and how it shapes their ability to cope. I also help clients whose childhood, bad relationships, bad experiences and overall past affect their decisions and choices in fulfilling life. Don’t let the voice from the past ruin your present and future.
I offer counselling support to help clients – individuals, couples and families- create a vision and set goals and timelines to encourage them to remain organised and focused on their journey to therapeutic healing and change. With my strategies, clients can realise and learn how thought processes (negative self-talk) impact feelings and behaviours, how to resolve conflict and develop healthier communication methods.
I enjoy helping people; this is my innate and natural instinct. Like a knee-jerk reaction, I always offer a helping hand when a person is in need. I value personal growth and connection to clients, helping them get “unstuck” by removing barriers and roadblocks inhibiting their passion.
My first session
An initial paid counselling assessment is offered to all clients. This assessment process is not counselling but it is a necessary part of deciding if we can offer you counselling going forwards.
The initial assessment gives you an opportunity to meet me and discuss why you have come to ‘Piece Into Peace’ and what you want to get from the counselling. We will also discuss a number of other topics such as explaining what counselling involves; the Counselling contract; and answering any questions you might have.
The initial assessment session (s) will normally take 50 minutes. An essential part of your therapeutic experience requires developing a therapeutic relationship with your counsellor. It is okay to say that you don't wish to work with me as it needs to feel right for you. Please note that the initial assessment can be more than 1 session depending on the situation.
If at the end of this assessment process it is agreed that we may be able to help you, it is then for you to decide whether you would like to undertake ongoing counselling. If your counsellor doesn't think we are best placed to help you, they may suggest another organisation or other services that would be available to you.
