Anne is an experienced accredited person-centred psychotherapy practitioner and educator. Presently running her private practice and working as a tutor, across both the undergraduate and postgraduate programmes in the counselling department.
Anne’s background in primary education provided the foundation for her interest in psychology and her belief in human potential. Her bachelor degree in psychology provided the stimulus to change career into counselling and the choice of a humanistic approach felt natural after child centred roots, the person-centred approach fitting perfectly with her philosophy in life.
Over the past decade Anne’s professional experience has included working in the third sector as a counsellor, but also as a supervisor and a manager of counselling services. The return to education began with tutoring on the counselling skills programme in 2009 and now extends into tutoring the Postgraduate Diploma. Anne is an accredited COSCA trainer at both certificate and diploma level.
Anne’s recent research for her master degree in person-centred counselling explored the tribes of the person-centred nation and how it influences the practitioner’s perception of their practice. This interest has influenced her work as an educator fuelling the desire to ensure a rounded and comprehensive Person-Centred Diploma at the university.
Anne's particular interest is in the "Tribes' of the person-centred nation and how the person-centred practitioner defines their practice.
