Anne is a Person Centred Practitioner who is employed as a Counsellor and Group Co-Facilitator of a Woman’s Support Group at The TRYangle Project. This position allows Anne to work closely with both perpetrators of Domestic Violence (DV) and also their victims. She has gained extensive experience working with these client groups and believes the comprehensive, all-embracing studies she engaged in at LC&CTA gave her a solid personal and professional base that continues to stabilise her practice. Anne writes “My training at LC&CTA helped me to come to know how to adapt my way of working to meet my clients needs without compromising my theoretical and clinical views or corrupting my practice and philosophy. My training also assisted me in knowing how to give more of myself without ‘burning out’. I thank my LC&CTA Trainers for helping me to mould myself into the person and practitioner I am and continue to want to become as I learn and develop more.”
