Annie Robinson I am passionate about my work as a counsellor and the process of therapy. I bring diverse experiences from earlier careers, my own family experiences and my life interests. I love the ‘great outside’. Above all, I enjoy making connection, and place great value on relationships. I work as a generic (any theme) individual counsellor. My approach is called ‘Integrative’ which means that it combines key ideas and techniques from the major counselling and psychotherapy traditions. I call myself a ‘Relational Integrative’ therapist, placing great value on developing a trusting, collaborative therapeutic relationship, which of course is confidential. Relationally, I will focus on picking up key threads from the dynamics of our interactions to help the two of us unpack potentially useful information about you.
