Anne Thomas, Registered Counsellor
Qualified, Experienced, Creative
Following a 15 year career in computer design, I re-trained as a Counsellor, qualifying in 2012 at Salford College
I began my health and social care work with one of the leading Social Enterprises in the country, Unlimited Potential, where I worked as a smoke free spaces advisor. This pivotal post brought an abundance of experience for me, working with hard to reach groups and vulnerable adults
Here I developed my style and approach and applied the latest health data and support to help people with addictions and harmful behaviours
Naturally progressing to a role as health trainer with Unlimited Potential, I supported individuals to change behaviours including, smoking, alcohol, weight, mood and exercise. During this time I completed my counselling placements within generic counselling services and prison settings. I gained valuable experience of working with individuals with basic and complex needs both on a short term and long term basis
In 2014, I worked as a health coach with The Big Life Company, gaining a European qualification in Motivational Interviewing. Focusing on the language and communication of change, I successfully helped individuals to learn coping strategies to overcome harmful behaviours and utilise their assets to reach their potential.
Presently, my portfolio includes contract work providing counselling for the NHS in Oldham and private client work.
