Anita Roy BSc NCS

Counsellor for Adults

In person:  Monday & Saturday daytime,  weekday & Saturday evenings

Fees: £60

Hello, I’m Anita, a registered & accredited member of National Counselling Society. I believe that our early lived life experiences manifest in infinite ways, and that each one of us is unique and worthy of equal dignity.

I have experience working with a range of concerns including trauma, sexual abuse, relationship with self and others, loss and grief, personality and identity issues.


  • BSc in Person Centred Counselling
  • Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling
  • Certificate in Working with Loss and Grief
  • Certificate in Working with Trauma ( Phase Orientated Trauma Model)
  • Certificate in Understanding the Self – Theories of Personality
  • Certificate in Working with Sexual Abuse

I have 10+ years’ experience in a range of settings including charity organisation and NHS referral services. My previous experience has included work in Rape and Sexual Abuse Crisis Centres, seeing clients with recent and/or historical sexual abuse.

With my unique skill set I can help you with talking about trauma, abuse, relationship difficulties, identity issues, cultural issues, work related stress, loss or grief.

My experience includes work with adults from diverse cultures. These clients often shared concerns around cultural transition and feelings of displacement. True belonging does not require us to change who we are, it requires us to be who we are.

I am passionate about working with clients who live with the effects of early life trauma. The pain one experiences in their present life is what happened to them.  Understanding the tapestry of that experience, accepting it, observing the many ways we have co-created it, is the beginning of our transformation; from pain to wisdom. Therapy enables the process of dismantling old belief structures and ways of being to development of an authentic self.

Approach to therapy:
My approach is integrative, pulling from humanistic & psychodynamic approaches.

The core of my work is building a therapeutic relationship with clients. I strive to create an empathetic, safe, reflective space for clients to look into their personal experiences, develop self understanding & improve their psychological wellbeing.
