Ann Allega - Therapist

SPECIALIST IN AMERICAN EXPATRIATES • ADDICTIONS • WORK RELATED STRESS • RELATIONSHIP ISSUES • EXPATRIATE RELOCATION STRESS • FAMILY DYNAMICS • PTSD • ANGER MANAGEMENT • ANXIETY • DEPRESSION • LOW SELF ESTEEM • ADHD

Hello, my name is Ann and I am a registered member of the BACP. I have significant experience in online counselling and as a result I firmly believe in its benefits. I have done online and phone counselling myself and I found it to be effective. I've worked with lots of people who have never experienced counselling before and I am aware that this can be an anxiety provoking and nervous experience. However, based on my experience I am of the opinion that the release of speaking about something which you may have kept private for a long time is extremely cathartic. If you've come this far, I can offer you confidential and encouraging support through whatever it is you wish to work through. You may not even know what that is! Just that it might be time to talk to someone. My previous career was in the corporate world where I worked for over fifteen years in the beer industry. I'm an American expatriate having first moved to London in 2004. One of my special areas of interest is helping American expats adjust emotionally and psychologically with all the differences they face in the United Kingdom. I know because I faced the same challenges. In addition, I can work with any issue you wish to bring to me. As a registered member of BACP, I am committed to my continual personal and professional development and also work in accordance with their ethical framework for good practice.

My approach to therapy is to respond to my clients as unique individuals and as such over the years I have developed skills that enable me to utilise a variety of therapeutic approaches.
