MY PROFILE


My name is Ann Hodges-Smith and I am a qualified counsellor/psychotherapist. I am a Registered Member of the BACP
(British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy).

I work within the BACP Ethical Framework to ensure good practice at all times.


I spent many years working at a supervisory/management level within the retail industry, having responsibility for various duties and personnel.  Working with colleagues and members of the public from all walks of life. I have also dedicated many years to raising a family. Along the way I have encountered and witnessed many hurdles, and it is these valuable experiences that lead me to pursue a vocation where I could actively help and support people utilising my wealth of life skills along the way.

As a result I embarked on a career as a Counsellor/Psychotherapist.


I currently have a private practice in Southend-On-Sea, Essex and am also a bereavement volunteer and counselling supervisor for the Cruse Bereavement organisation.


QUALIFICATIONS


AQA Certificate in Counselling Skills

Awareness in Bereavement Care - Level 2

AQA Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling

Practitioner Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy

Certificate in Counselling Supervision - Level 3 (Cruse Bereavement Care)


In order to keep up to date and maintain skill levels, personal development is important.  To ensure this is achieved I regularly attend workshops and training courses for counselling/psychotherapy.  Some of these are as follows:


Child Protection/Safeguarding Workshop

Drug and Alcohol Theory and Practice

Counselling Children & Young People
