About Annika Giles (Counsellor for York Therapy Clinic)

Annika is one of our dedicated counsellors at York Therapy Clinic, offering individual counselling for adults, as well as couples and mother/daughter counselling for those looking to overcome a variety of challenges.

With a particular focus on helping those dealing with anxiety, stress, burnout and relationship issues, Annika places a person-centred approach at the core of her counselling sessions, putting the individual needs of her clients first and foremost.

Experienced Counsellor in York

Since qualifying as a counsellor, Annika has spent three years working within her private practice. During this time, she has gained extensive experience working with people with a variety of issues, including depression, anxiety, burnout, and stress.

She has also counselled adults through the NHS, at Look UK, a charity supporting visually impaired young people and their families, and at bereavement charity Talking About Loss. In addition to this, Annika has spent time counselling NHS and frontline workers through charity Frontline19.

Prior to qualifying as a counsellor, Annika worked in a senior position in sales management. She believes that working within this male oriented environment helped her to understand how difficult it can be to ask for help, particularly for men.  

Annika has always worked with people, and felt that counselling was the career path where she could use the skills that she has learned over the years; following her passion to support others to feel better about themselves.

Adult & Couples Counselling York

Annika believes from her personal experiences, and her professional work with clients, that counselling provides more than an understanding of where anxiety, low mood, stress and relationships might be coming from.

Counselling also provides a range of useful strategies so that you feel more confident in coping with your daily life. It gives you a place to openly, confidentially discuss your daily life, your past, your dreams so that you feel listened to.

Registered with the BACP, Annika offers a range of therapy approaches within her counselling in York, including CBT, psychodynamic therapy, self-compassion therapy, and mindfulness.
