Hello and thank you for visiting my website. My name is Ana Cox and I am a fully qualified Counsellor & Psychotherapist registered and accredited by the BACP.

I work in Croydon and the surrounding areas providing confidential counselling to adults & young people, in private practice face-to-face, at my home, or via video call & telephone. I also work as a Clinical Supervisor with counsellors, teaching staff, medical staff and coaches.

Perhaps you have landed on this page because lately you have been feeling irritable, blowing up at family, friends, and work colleagues without knowing why. Maybe you have found yourself unable to control your thoughts and get on with life and have either got over emotional or have shut off your emotions. If any of this rings a bell you may be suffering from stress, anxiety or depression which in turn may be causing relationship issues. If this has been going on for over two weeks it is a sign that you need to take action to rid yourself of this. I aim to provide you with a space where you can talk in confidence about issues or problems that might be affecting your life and by this means find a way forward that is more rewarding.

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  a 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 also a Registered Provider and Associate Counsellor for several Employee Assistance Programmes (EAPs). Please feel free to contact me to access counselling through your EAP or pass my details on to them when contacting their dedicated helpline.
