Anna Murphy

I am a Humanistic counsellor in my final year of training. I believe in people’s innate ability to think for themselves and to grow, develop and heal.

I offer an empathic, non-judgmental space, and I am committed to working alongside you as you explore and bring about the changes you want to make. 

I believe that a warm and trusting relationship between client and counsellor is the key to effective therapy. I see each client as a unique individual and I will be led by your pace and by whatever you choose to bring to our sessions.

My training includes Person Centred Therapy, Gestalt and Transactional Analysis and I will always strive to work in a way that feels right for you. That might mean offering a non-directive, compassionate ear, helping you to focus on your thoughts and feelings in the here and now, or working to examine, and perhaps change long-held beliefs or patterns of behaviour. 

I have previously worked with people who have experienced domestic abuse, and with bereaved clients. 

I am a student member of the BACP and adhere to their ethical framework.
