Passionate about Mental Wellbeing.

Mission Statement: To provide affordable counselling within the community and to be a part of the community.

Hello and thank you for visiting my website. My name is Ana Cox and I am a fully qualified Counsellor & Psychotherapist Registered & Accredited by the BACP. I provide confidential counselling in Croydon and I also work as a Clinical Supervisor with counsellors, youth workers, teaching staff, medical staff and coaches.

I work extensively with stress, anxiety, generalised anxiety disorder (GAD),  depressionrelationship & family issues. I am an Integrative Counsellor, put simply this means that my training allows me to work in more than one type of therapy and am therefore able to tailor counselling to meet your needs. I am a qualified EMDR therapist and have been successful in working using this approach for trauma, depression, anxiety, phobias and panic disorder.

I have worked in GP surgeries, schools, and private practice helping people from all walks of life with a very broad range of issues. Currently a lot of clients are coming to me with depression (low mood/feeling sad), stress, anxiety, relationship issues, together with traumas both big and small. My research interests are cultural/bicultural identity development, psychosis and psychotic experiences, stress, anxiety and trauma.

I have a mixed heritage English/Mexican background and am able to conduct counselling in Spanish. My practice room based in Croydon, CR0, has a warm and welcoming feeling to it providing you with a calm space in which to explore what is going on for you (see image below).

I know how hard it is to make the move to see a counsellor and I will aim to see you as soon as possible. If you do not receive a reply from me within 24 hours please check your spam box or call me.

My practice room where I offer counselling is in East Croydon very close to East Croydon Station and has a warm and welcoming feeling to it providing you with ivory-aztec-practice-room-ba calm space in which to explore what is going on for you.  I appreciate how big a step it is to reach out to a counsellor and with that in mind I aim to offer you a session as soon as possible.

I am a fully Registered Accredited Member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy) and also have membership with ISPS UK(International Society for Psychological and Social Approaches to Psychosis), and Metanoia. Membership of these professional bodies means that I abide by strict Codes of Ethics and professional practice.  You can be assured of the highest standards of discretion and confidentiality. I take equal opportunities seriously and embrace the principles of diversity and inclusivity.

I accept referrals from GPs and other health and social care professionals. I am experienced in providing the following services for the Croydon area: Counselling, CBT and EMDR, for private companies, EAPs, Insurance Companies & Solicitors.
