About - ANC Therapy | 67 Grosvenor street, London

Anya Charnaud BA (hons), FdSc, PGCert, MBACP (Accred)

Anya Natasha Charnaud founder of ANC Therapy.

I am an experienced, qualified and accredited psychotherapist therapist offering private therapy to those looking for someone to talk to.

Life can be difficult and sometimes we all need someone to talk to. Whether you're experiencing current challenges or have unresolved issues from the past, talking through your problems with a qualified therapist in a safe environment can help you transform your life. As the old adage goes, a problem shared is a problem halved...

Finding the right therapist is a personal and often difficult experience. How do you choose someone to confide your most difficult feelings to? When it comes to finding a therapist it is important that you feel in control of who you choose to work with.

Anya's Experience:

With over 15 years' experience in statutory, private and NHS counselling, I have extensive understanding of individual personal needs. I have worked in a specialist trauma service within King's College Hospital for over 11 years, holding a senior psychotherapy post, and now working in a complex adult NHS mental health team. Prior to this I have worked in the addictions field.

I am a qualified supervisor and supervise qualified and trainee therapists.  I have completed my EMDR training which is a NICE (national institute for clinical excellence) approved treatment for trauma. 

I hold graduate and post graduate qualifications in psychological therapy and maintain a high calibre of continued professional development to provide the best possible training to allow you the best possible up-to-date treatment.

I have worked in a wide range of settings and have no limitations of types of difficulties I would work with.
