Counselling Process and Tools

Your first session is free. This gives you and Anna a chance to meet and discuss your needs and treatment options. It’s also an opportunity to see if you are a good fit to work together, as Anna believes finding the right Counsellor for each individual is vital for the best therapuetic outcomes.

If you would like to make an ACC Sensitive Claim, Anna will begin the process for you and support and guide you throughout your treatment.

Every client and their needs are different and Anna feels it’s important to “go with the flow” and adjusts her style and therapuetic techniques accordingly. She uses a variety of tools and modalities, including:

  • Cognitive behavioural therapy

  • Person-centred therapy

  • Psychodynamic counselling

  • Hakomi

  • Solution Focused Therapy

  • Trauma Focused Therapy

  • Narrative Therapy
