About Me

Anna Morgan of CanterburyI am a fully qualified Integrative counsellor, an accredtted member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I am also a member of  CCYP Counselling Children and Young People.

Of central importance to my work is respect for confidentiality and to work  within ethical standards set out by BACP. I am committed to on-going professional development and frequently attend courses to enhance my work .

I trained as an integrative counsellor, studying various therapeutic methodology. This means that I am able to mould my approach around a particular client’s needs with sensitivity and flexibility.

As everybody is different in their needs and their approach to life, an integrative approach enables me to work with a variety of issues,  where the quality of the relationship between client and counsellor is central to the counselling process. I provide all of my clients with a warm, confidential and non-judgmental space, always allowing the client to guide me in providing the right kind of support. Some clients may find it helpful to explore their past, especially their childhood experience. I integrate my theoretical knowledge and tailor each session to match each clients  unique needs.   I fundamentally believe that the client is the expert on themselves.

I offer open ended and short term counselling depending on the clients individual needs. I have experience working with individuals of all ages including children and adolescents.

Some of the life issues I have experience working with:

  • Feelings of stress or anxiety
  • A lack of confidence or self-esteem
  • Anger
  • Fear
  • Shame
  • Depression, emptiness or loss of sense of self
  • Difficulties with starting, sustaining or finishing relationships
  • Work-related problems
  • Sexual abuse
  • Domestic Abuse
  • Childhood issues/trauma
  • Losses such as bereavement, divorce or redundancy
  • Eating difficulties and body image
  • Family worries, conflicts and crises
  • Sexual dysfunction
  • Sexuality
  • Anger issues
  • Self Harm
  • Trauma
  • The effects of serious physical or long-term illness
  • Identity issues/Understanding yourself better

My experience has shown me that although counselling cannot get rid of a painful past, it can help people to develop a greater depth of understanding and self acceptance. When an individual gains acceptance of themselves, self esteem and confidence will grow and life changes occur.

I offer Counselling sessions at:

The Wellbeing Centre, Canterbury

The Church Street Project, Folkestone
