"It is never too late to be what you might have been" - George Eliot
My name is Anne Evans. I am a counsellor and psychodynamic therapist with many years experience of working with individual adults of all ages, and with couples. I am also an experienced therapy supervisor for individual counsellors and therapists and small group supervision.
I started working in Mental Health in the NHS in 1995, and bring a depth of knowledge and experience to my counselling work. I trained in psychodynamic counselling with Gloucestershire Counselling Service (GCS), the largest counselling provider in Gloucestershire, and also completed their Associate course for qualified counsellors and therapists. The training was accredited by the Westminster Pastoral Foundation (WPF) and the British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC).
I have experience of working with adults, young adults, couples and children. I currently provide both open-ended and time-limited counselling for individual adults and couples, and work both for Gloucestershire Counselling Service and privately through Compass Point. I have had the privilege of working with many different people who have brought a vast range of issues to be explored in counselling.
I provide a calm, welcoming, confidential space where we can discuss and explore the issues that have brought you to counselling. During our first meeting we will decide on the best way for us to work together, and if you decide you would like to work with me, we will meet weekly at a regular agreed time.
If you would like to arrange to see me for a free initial assessment session, please phone or email me via our Contact Page. If I am not able to answer, please leave a message in confidence and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
I am able to provide home visits for clients who have mobility issues - please contact me for further information.
I participate regularly in CPD, and have special interests in couples work and working with older people.
I provide psychodynamic supervision for small groups and individual qualified counsellors and other professionals - go to our Supervision page or contact me for more details if you are interested in this.
