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.
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.
