My Biography

About Me

"People are just as wonderful as sunsets if I can let them be... when I look at a sunset, I don't find myself saying, 'Soften the orange a bit on the right hand corner.' I don't try to control a sunset, I watch with awe as it unfolds." - Carl Rogers

Hi, I’m Anita Day.

I am a qualified Person-Centred Counsellor in Nottinghamshire.  I provide a variety of therapy forums, from telephone and online, to walking therapy and traditional in person therapy.   I am a registered member of the BACP, a member of The Person-Centred Association, and I hold professional indemnity insurance.

Prior to counselling, I worked in the wonderful world of logistics as a senior manager, dealing with large ecommerce and charity clients.  I had a team I was responsible for and was keen to provide them every opportunity for advancement as personal development has always been my thing.

I am American but moved to Nottinghamshire the summer of 2003 and have not looked back since.  I am proud to reside in this wonderful and beautiful country and often give back to the community through regular volunteering.

My Experience

During my placement as a student counsellor, I worked in a variety of counselling agencies – from general adult counselling, to young people counselling, counselling for those affected by alcohol and substance abuse, and also counselling for adults who experienced sexual abuse as a child.

After I qualified, I remained volunteering at two of the agencies, specialising in childhood sexual abuse, and alcohol and substance misuse.  In my experience I have seen clients with a range of issues from bereavement and grief, to relationship, CSA, exam pressures, self-esteem and self-worth, mental health conditions such as anxiety and depression, hearing voices, suicidal ideation, and trauma.
