My name is Ana, being in the Jehovah Witness organisation for 18 years impacted my life greatly. That is why for the last 8 years I have become a qualified counsellor and an accredited member of the BACP ( British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy).
I specialised in working with current or former Jehovah Witnesses thinking about the transition of leaving or working through the trauma and abuse they experienced within the cult.
I believe, from my own involvement and exit, that no one should be alone through this process. My aim is to facilitate a safe space to make sense of the experience whilst moving forward.
I am involved with the Family Survival Trust in London which provides support groups, talks and awareness related to the damage that cults inflict. I work online via Skype with people exiting the cult from different countries, on a one-to-one basis as well as telephone. I am happy to answer any doubts or questions you have before hand.
