Anastasia Seale

MBACP, MACC, Integrative Counsellor, BA (Hons) Counselling, PGDip Counselling, PGDL, BA (Hons) Business Administration

Integrative counsellor woking empathically and non-judgementally with adults who need psychological and practical help. Each person is a unique individual and I work holistically with all areas of human functioning – emotional, rational, physical, volitional, spiritual and relational.

If you find yourself needing support and a place to work through difficulties, I am here to assist you.
I am a qualified integrative counsellor. Because I believe each person is unique, I use a multi-method approach to suit each person individually. This includes exploration through conversation, but can also include creative channels such as writing and the use of art. I offer short-term and long-term counselling depending on your needs. I work in an empathic, non-judgemental and respectful way regardless of your gender, race, religion, age, abilities, culture, class, ethnicity, sexual orientation, faith or its absence.
During the sessions, we will explore ways to help you become more mentally, emotionally, physically, volitionally and spiritually balanced so that your life journey and your relationships become easier and more fulfilling.
I am a registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (MBACP). I am also a member of the Association of Christians in Counselling (ACC).


I have counselling experience and work in the following areas of counselling: abandonment, agoraphobia, attachment trauma, autism, bereavement, borderline personality disorder, bullying, child-to-parent violence, couple relationship difficulties, cross-generational trauma, developmental trauma, divorce/separation, domestic abuse, dyslexia, emotional abuse, exam stress, generalised anxiety disorder, low self-esteem, obsessive compulsive disorder, panic attacks, parenting issues, sensory processing disorder, separation anxiety, shame/guilt, sleep problems, social anxiety disorder, spiritual issues, stress, suicidal ideation, trauma/PTSD.

My work experience includes working as an adult counsellor at Crossways Counselling Service, working as a child and adolescent counsellor with Place2Be, working as a Non-violent Resistance parent group co-facilitator with Guildford CAMHS, working with parents as a parent educator as part of Anastasia Seale Infinity Parent Coaching. I also worked as a finance/corporate lawyer at Herbert Smith, BP and MFB solicitors.
