Anna Powney has a background in project management but retrained to be a counsellor in 2016. Combining both skills Anna manages Dorset Mind Your Head, Dorset Mind’s Children and Young People Service.
After many years living and working in London, Brighton and France Anna moved back to Dorset where she grew up, along with her husband and two children. She became involved with the community through volunteering as a Beaver Scout Leader and helping-out at a local school and college, particularly within pastoral care.
Aside of work, Anna is a keen walker, passionate about the outdoors which she considers key to our wellbeing. She’s also a lover of poetry and literature.
