Hello, I'm Anna, the founder of Honeysett Counselling. With over 18 years of experience in the therapeutic field and 8 years of running my own practice, I bring a wealth of expertise to my work as a counsellor.

Throughout my career, I've helped individuals navigate through various challenges including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, grief, stress, and more, all of which may be hindering your life.

In addition to my counselling practice, I'm also an author and business coach, supporting fellow counselors in setting up their private practices. I serve as a lecturer and supervisor at the University of East London, where I'm dedicated to nurturing and empowering the next generation of therapists.

As your counselor, my aim is to provide you with compassionate and empathetic support for whatever has brought you to my door. Together, we'll work towards healing and growth in a safe and welcoming environment.

Mark Richards
Counsellor MBACP 
(Final year trainee)

I practice from a Person-Centred base, blending in elements of a Psychodynamic approach when needed. I believe in flexibility, understanding that each client is unique and may require a tailored approach to therapy. My goal is to create a safe and supportive environment where you can explore your thoughts and feelings openly.

By integrating Person-Centred and Psychodynamic approaches, I aim to foster trust and build a strong therapeutic relationship with you. I prioritize your needs and preferences, ensuring that our sessions are guided by your individual journey.

Together, we'll work towards deepening your self-awareness and understanding, leading to personal growth and positive change. My commitment is to provide a compassionate and non-judgmental space where you feel heard, valued, and empowered.

Whether you're facing challenges, seeking clarity, or simply looking to enhance your well-being, I'm here to support you every step of the way.




  • Level 2 Counselling Skills (CPCAB).

  • Level 3 Counselling Studies (CPCAB).

  • Level 4 Diploma in Counselling Skills and Theory (MNCS).

  • Level 5 Professional Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling Practice (MNCS). (Ongoing)



Working with children as they intuitively explore and engage with the world around them, just starting out in their journey of life, has taught me a lot about patience and what it means to truly listen and understand.


I have learned a lot from the wealth of experience and wisdom shared by older generations, who have negotiated much of life's ups and downs, emphasizing the value of empathy, compassion and authenticity.


As someone who is in the middle stages of this journey of life, I understand what it feels like to be lost and uncertain about the path forward, with no clear direction. I’m here to use my own experiences to support others through this journey, walking alongside them until the path becomes clearer.


As a dedicated individual with a diverse skill set and a strong passion for supporting and helping others in their personal and emotional growth, I bring a unique perspective to my work.

My background in Retail Management, coupled with ongoing education in Mental Health, has equipped me to positively impact the lives of both adults and children. Through fostering essential coping strategies, I strive to enhance their future well-being.

Warmth and compassion define my approach, and as your counselor, I am fully committed to supporting you on your journey should we work together. Together, we'll navigate through challenges and embark on a path of personal growth and fulfillment.
