Profile of Anne Gliddon
I trained at Heartwood Centre for Counselling and Psychotherapy which is based at Dartington Hall near Totnes. As part of the training I had to attend counselling sessions and understand what it is like to have counselling and how you might be feeling as you decide to undertake counselling sessions.
Having gained the ABC diploma, I am a qualified Integrative Therapeutic Counsellor and am trained to help clients work through a variety of life's experiences that they bring to sessions and have a particular interest working with clients who are going through bereavement and those on the Autism spectrum. As an integrative counsellor I work with three theories – Person Centred, Gestalt and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. Working with these theories enables me to work creatively with a client with their individual needs to help them process what is going on right now.
Sometimes we feel stuck and cannot find a way forward, counselling can help with this 'stuckness'. It can be something connected to the present or has its roots in the past and therefore counselling can help break the cycles of experience you are faced with. This in turn can be empowering so that you can see 'the wood for the trees' and move forward in your life.
I am involved with voluntary work as a counsellor with Jeremiah's Journey, a children's charity supporting children through bereavement which is based in Plymouth and also with Counselling for Carers, part of Devon Carers Consortium which is base at Newton Abbot.
I am a registered member of the BACP (British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists) and abide by their code of ethics. I attend regular supervision sessions to ensure continued standards of professional practice.
I offer an initial 30 minute consultation free of charge to ensure that I am the right counsellor for you.
