Anoushka Beazley, Transactional Analysis Psychotherapist and Counsellor, MSc, Dip, Certified Transactional Analyst, CTA, Diploma in Trauma Therapy. BA (Hons), MA.
Happiness has been suggested by ancient philosophers as a habit we must practice rather than something that happens to us. There are times in our life when we struggle with the idea of happiness.
Certain experiences and events can make it more difficult to cope and find a way through.
Anoushka is an experienced psychotherapist and counsellor. She provides a confidential, safe and non-judgmental space and sees the therapeutic relationship as an anchor during times when life feels too overwhelming to go it alone. She believes people are unique beings with their own story and works intuitively and with compassion – everyone has the right to feel understood.
Anoushka’s personal approach is formed from Transactional Analysis; the social and behavioural study of human interaction. Attachment theory; the first pattern of relating formed via parents and family experiences and existentialism; the philosophy of how we manage ‘being’. She asks who we are in the world, what we want in our lives and how we make our choices.
Within her private practice and as a practising counsellor in multiple GP surgeries within the NHS, Anoushka is highly experienced in working with clients presenting a range of conditions including;
Depression and Anxiety
Trauma and Abuse
Childhood Neglect and Abandonment
Cultural and Race Issues
Family and Social Relationship Difficulties
Anoushka is one of the in-house counselling teams at the charity Rahab.
Many of her clients work internationally in high-profile occupations and Anoushka is sensitive to these pressures. Before entering psychotherapy, Anoushka worked in the arts for ten years as a television researcher and then in theatre as a trained actress. She writes fiction and nonfiction with articles published in various mental health journals as well a novel and short stories.
