Anouska Longley, Chartered Counselling Psychologist.

I'm a counselling psychologist with over 14 years’ experience of providing therapeutic care to individuals with a range of psychological and emotional difficulties which create distress and discomfort.

I specialise within perinatal health and wellbeing, supporting parents from pre-conception, during pregnancy and postnatally, providing antenatal support and education; couple support for expectant/new parents transitioning into parenthood; post-natal support to manage and improve maternal mood, promoting maternal well-being. I have extensive experience of working with maternal trauma/PTSD, maternal OCD, anxiety, depression, tokophobia and perinatal crisis intervention. 

Registered and accredited with British Psychological Society (BPS); Health Professions Council (HPC), UK; British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP).
