Coastal Talking Therapy is a counselling practice owned and run by me, Anne van’t Hoff. I am an experienced UKCP accredited counsellor practising from the lovely costal village of Alnmouth in a warm, safe and cosy setting.
I understand that everyone can go through difficult times in life and we all can benefit from support in handling these challenges. I can help by offering you a relaxed, safe and confidential therapeutic space to explore issues that may be troubling you in a caring, accepting and non-judgemental way.
As a counsellor I promote and aim to improve positive mental health and emotional wellbeing for adults. I advocate mental and physical wellbeing as I believe the two together produce better results.
Empowering people to become autonomous about the decisions they make is at the heart of what I do. Being a counsellor and working together with you, my clients, can enable us to make a real difference to your life. I work with my clients to help them to become the people they want to be free from emotional baggage and poor coping strategies that have held them back from being fulfilled and satisfied with their lives.
During this COVID 19 situation I am largely working remotely via Zoom or other remote systems. I am also able to offer socially distanced walking therapy sessions. As soon as I am advised by my accredited body I will resume face to face counselling but this is not advised currently.
My additional and specialist training includes CBT, EMDR, work related stress, anger issues, bereavement, depression, low mood, anxiety, relationship difficulties, loneliness and low confidence, mental health issues, domestic violence, and sexual violence and abuse.
In difficult situations I aim to help you to:
- Understand your problems
- Clarify any confusion you may have
- Feel more control in your life
- Cope with your life more easily
- Approach life with a clearer mind
- Move forward with your life
