Anne Lindley-French MBA, MA, MBACP, FHEA

Anne is a Counsellor working with adults, couples and groups. She developed the Garden Gate program as a result of trying to understand and explain how theory works in practice.

“I have a life-long fascination with what makes people, organisations and societies tick, which makes counselling a fascinating and highly rewarding job for me. I am an atheist who believes in people and an optimist who knows there are difficult times.”

She is the founder member of the Beacon Counselling & Coaching Group and a Tutor for trainee counsellors at The Academy: SPACE. She draws on a business and teaching background developed as a Senior and Visiting Lecturer at Sheffield Hallam University Business School and Sheffield University Management School, an Investment Banking Consultant at Hogarth Davies Lloyd and Management Trainee at Ford Credit Europe.

Anne is straight-forward, supportive and highly persistent, which she hopes contributes to her ability to work effectively with clients who want to get to the bottom of things and optimise their lives.

Anne is a Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (Certificate Number 062545) and is bound by their Ethical Framework on standards and confidentiality.
