Anwar Shea Psychology/Sports Psychology



I am a highly qualified and experienced counsellor/psychologist.  I have medical training and also a diploma and masters degree in counselling / psychotherapy from Surrey University.  I am also BAC accredited.

I have more than 20 years experience working with people from various background and cultures including ethnic minority.

Counselling/therapy are sought for various reasons.  The following are a few examples:

  • Relationship or marital problems
  • Stress
  • Depression
  • Bereavement
  • The effects of abuse
  • Important life changes
  • Eating disorders
  • Family issues
  • Children and teenage problems like bullying, pregnancy etc
  • Phobias and anxiety like fear of flying, fear of exams, social phobia and travel anxiety
  • Addiction
  • Lack of confidence and self-belief
  • Medico-legal claims

I have a long and successful experience in all of the above.  In addition, I also work with people on building their confidence and self-belief and help them with mental preparation before any performance (sports or stage).  This includes mental training by changing negative thoughts into positive ones to overcome fear and mental block. One of the therapeutic methods I use in my practice is a Cognitive Behaviour therapy.

An initial interview is offered without obligation to individuals or couples, for the purpose of exploring problems and concerns and deciding what help may be needed. I am BUPA registered.
