Ann Rimmer BSc, MBACP Adv. Dip.
You may be wondering if counselling is the way forward for you. Your life may not be as you hoped and maybe you are feeling anxious and unhappy in your current life situation. I know how important it is to be listened to and to be heard. Choosing counselling as a way to explore your concerns is not an easy step. Choosing a counsellor you feel comfortable and able to work with can be daunting. Bearing all this in mind, if you decide to proceed, we could arrange an initial no obligation meeting to consider what you would like from counselling and discuss whether and how we could work together to address your concerns. As a qualified integrative counsellor, I can offer a safe, warm, non judgemental and confidential setting for you to focus on the difficulties you are facing at a pace which meets your needs. I could work with you to help you understand your inner life and your options which might involve making changes or maybe seeking closure and acceptance.
My training and experience enables me to draw on a wide diversity and richness of theory which means I can offer a degree of flexibility in the way I work. My work however is underpinned by a person centred approach and as such I value each person as an unique individual and I see what I do very much in terms of empowerment and potentiality. For me the counselling relationship is at the heart of therapeutic work.
