About this Service


Hello my name is Anita Carter I am a registered counsellor with BACP (British Association for

Counsellors and Psychotherapist) and an Expressive Arts Therapist.

I am dedicated to helping clients pinpoint strengths, create resilience and a healthy foundation

to cope with challenges in their lives.

I know it can be uncomfortable, frustrating, stressful and at times a scary place to be looking

for help when feeling vulnerable. So I invite you take a close look at what I do and how I can

successfully guide you through the challenges you may be experiencing right now.

Therapeutic Process~

I am here to help clients discover the resources within themselves through Solution Focused

Therapy. I will listened, notice, and hear what you’re saying and not saying. I will guide you to

find the solutions that will give you the tools to bring new perspectives in your life. In addition I

can provide an option of a therapeutic process call expressive arts therapy, which

encompasses all the arts (visual arts, music, drama, movement and writing/poetry). If you’ve

tried other therapies without success this may be a choice for you. Both Solution Focused

Therapy and Expressive Arts can be combined, if suitable for you as the client, but it is not

required. I will help you explore what feels right for you as a client.

Education and Experience~

For 25 years I have had the privilege of working as a counselor and expressive arts therapist.

My expertise is working with individuals who experience stage of life challenges in their

personal growth, career, work stress, women issues, and grief and loss. I also have experience

with depression, anxiety, and mood disorders. I have provided counseling and

expressive arts therapy to patients bedside in hospital and psychiatric settings. I’ve also

worked in a military hospital with veterans experiencing PTSD and addictions.

~Registered BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy)

~Master of Arts, Counseling

~Professional diploma in Expressive Arts Therapy

~Certified in Online therapy

In addition I subscribe to the following clinical approaches:

Mindfulness Therapy and Somatic Therapy

A little about me~

Over the years I faced the need to not shrink away from life’s stresses and unknowns. But

believe me it’s a daily practice. So I continue with my own therapeutic practices through

mindful meditation, journaling, art making and community connections. I am dedicated to my

personal development as well as ongoing continuing education in my field as a counsellor and

expressive arts therapist.

Please know I will be by your side helping you on your journey to gain the skills and tools to

lead a joyful and meaningful life. I look forward working with you!
