Meet Anne

 

Hi, my name is Anne and I am a qualified counsellor, psychotherapist and hypnotherapist, working with the National Counselling Association.

 

I use a range of counselling styles, based around the individual's needs and I form a strong, therapeutic relationship with clients, which I feel is essential in providing a safe environment for clients to talk and bring about effective change.

 

I offer a warm, calm, empathic and non-judgemental approach to counselling, giving time and space to talk.

                        The benefits of breathing

Breathing correctly is important for your overall wellbeing and will help with many health issues, including:
Calming down anxiety - Deep breathing slows down your heart rate, allows the body to take in more oxygen and ultimately signals the brain to wind down.


Improves immunity - it helps promote a cleaner, toxin-free and healthier blood supply, helps ward off infection-causing germs from the base and strengthens your immunity


Helps you sleep better - following a simple deep breathing regime can guarantee better sleep. Taking slow, deep, long breaths can signal your body to detoxify and return to a sense of calm, which can help you sleep better.

Increases energy level due to increased blood flow. We get more oxygen into our blood. Increased oxygen results in increased energy levels

Breathing relaxes mind and body - when you are angry, tensed or scared, your muscles are tightened and your breathing becomes shallow. Long deep breathing reverses this process, allowing your body (and mind) to become calmer.
