Why choose Anglia Counselling and Bob Brotchie?

Succeeding in working with people to understand themselves better, and letting them find their best resources to overcome difficulties is core because clients and their challenges rightly demand this – and a sustainable strategy for life.


You will find a therapist possessing an excellent reputation and professional background.


I demonstrate how I understand!

Importantly – and without the ‘guff’, you will recognise the lived experience I understand AND that I really am able to empathise with so many of the challenges clients present with, I can most often ‘see’ through their eyes, and so, may feel what they feel. Most prefer this knowledge compared to the sometimes ‘cold’ academic, lacking ‘real-life’ exposure! Furthermore, you will find I engage – and I’m very proactive! No long uncomfortable silences here! I will ‘drive’ meetings if required until you are in a position of knowledge, trust and comfort to do so.

Training and Awards

Having re-trained, my earlier professional background involves almost two decades serving as an award-winning senior emergency paramedic, and innovator. Much of a paramedic’s emergency work involves being with those suffering chronic and acute psychological and psychiatric events! As such, and in an honoured profession I was privileged to bear witness and assist in the happiest – and the most traumatic of times. These experiences have provided me with a wonderful insight for those I will meet today along with my extra training and awards as follows:

  • Counselling & Psychotherapy
  • Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) Diploma (SAC Dip) (Distinction)
  • The Human Toolbox Program Practitioner Training
  • Working with Children and Young People Who Express Suicidal Feelings
  • The Rewind Technique (cPTSD, PTSD, OCD)

  • How to Lift Low Self Esteem in Your Clients

Who do I work with?

Person-centred counsel, to those aged 8 and over, to empower and inspire individuals to take back control of perhaps less than nourishing cognitive behaviours, including negative thoughts and low esteem, depression, stress, and anxieties in their various forms.

I am committed to providing quality and value that will be bespoke to you. Unique, and without discrimination, I deliver results whilst maintaining confidentially, ethically, to a diverse client list and work to best practices frameworks endorsed by the ‘industry’s’ governing organisations such as the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).

What safeguards are in place?

For your reassurance, I’ve put the following in place:
