Before qualifying as a counsellor Annalee worked in commercial roles for various large organisations, so also has a good understanding of the workplace environment and associated dynamics.


Annalee works with adults in a relational way, building a trusting and safe relationship where you can say the unsaid, explore difficult feelings, complex or unfathomable situations and relationships. This will usually involve an exploration of your past and present experience of the world, looking at repeating and unhelpful patterns of behaviour, who and where you are now as well as possibilities for change. 


At ACT, Annalee offers 50 minute sessions with individual adults and is happy to have an initial half hour telephone consultation before you meet.
