Anna Gooch Counselling

Empowering Minds, Healing Hearts.

About Me

My name is Anna. I retrained as an Integrative Counsellor, having experienced for myself, how transformative counselling was on my own personal journey.

Life can be hard, and I will walk alongside you as you navigate feelings such as fear, confusion, shock, shame, rejection, grief, anger, and sadness.

I will support your therapeutic journey within an empathetic, authentic, non-judgemental, safe space. I work collaboratively and will help you find a deeper understanding of how you think and how to process the parts of life that are hard for you right now.

I am grateful for the enormous help I got from you for the last few months. You helped me to see things clearer and you helped me to stand on my feet and be strong to face new challenges in life and not to be afraid of the future. In fact, I am looking forward to living the next chapter of my life. Many thanks

I went to see Anna and she was really helpful. I felt I could do so much when talking to her, she was kind and very supported.


I work over Teams and offer the opportunity of a free 15-minute Teams session for us to get to know each other. I would like you to feel heard, understood, and walked alongside, in this tough journey called life. I have an unconditionally positive approach, sometimes coaching in style, always tailored to your needs. Fundamentally, I believe in people, in listening and learning from others. I look forward to getting to know you.
