My name is Anna Bajus. I am qualified, accredited Registered Clinical and Counselling Psychologist (HCPC) .Ever since I was in High School I have always wanted to become someone who assists other people in time of need.
A career as a clinical and counselling psychologist gives me the opportunity to do this in addition to allowing me to pursue my interests in treating individuals experiencing psychological distress and mental illness.
An unique combination of clinical and counselling training gives me the chance to help you by using various tools.
What’s the difference between clinical and counselling Psychologists?
Counselling psychologists integrate psychological theory and research with therapeutic practice. They work closely with clients to look at mental health issues and explore the underlying problems that may have caused them. They work collaboratively with individuals to empower them to make decisions for themselves to improve their sense of personal wellbeing. They work across a range of human problems including bereavement, relationships, mental health issues and other significant life events.
Like counselling psychologists, clinical psychologists aim to reduce psychological distress and to enhance and promote psychological well-being. They deal with a number of mental and physical problems including anxiety, depression, addiction and relationship problems. To assess clients, they use a variety of methods including psychometric tests, interview and observation.
You don’t need to decide which one suits you better – I am fully qualified in both fields.
I have the knowledge, skills, desire and drive to help other people when they need assistance or guidance through difficult or challenging times. There is great satisfaction in being a part of a person’s road to change. It is a powerful and rewarding journey.
You may not have anyone in your life that you feel you can talk to, or maybe you do but they don’t understand you. Perhaps you do not want to burden someone that you are close to, or maybe they are part of the problem. If you are struggling with things in your life, past, present or future or have problems at work, university, home or in your relationships, counselling may help.
I am friendly, calm, personable and down to earth and I am committed to building a relationship with you that allows you to be open, honest and feel safe enough to explore yourself, your world and your problems.
I am a member of the PVG scheme (covering vulnerable children, adolescents and adults).
I work with children, adolescents and adults.
I am based in Edinburgh, Scotland, UK. I provide sessions at my home or online, via Skype or Whatsapp.
A FEW THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT ME:
- I am a wife and a mother of two little children. On daily basis, my patience is tested with my two toddlers, and I certainly feel that my self-awareness reached the height where my frustrations will never get the better of me, even with two young, very active and precocious young children that challenge me every day.
- I continuously keep up with current research and I work under ongoing supervision.
- I love all elements of psychology and its ability to help me connect with people, develop strong relationships and demonstrate my knowledge to helping you. These are the most valuable things to our relationship and your healing process.
- One of my main field of interests are anxiety disorders and Complex PTSD. Intergenerational transmission of relationship patterns is something I’m also very interested in.
