Anne-Marie Cole MBACP
The Old Dairy
There may be times in our life when we experience overwhelming, emotional feelings and we find things tough for us to deal with. At times like this counselling can help you move forward and help cope with these difficult times.
I am a BACP regisitered counsellor working with adolescents (aged 13 years and older) and adults. I qualified as a Psychodynamic Counsellor to work with adults and then trained with Place2Be, the children's mental health charity, working with children in schools. I have worked in both Primary and Secondary schools as a School Counsellor, supporting children and adolescents with various emotional and mental health issues. For many years I have worked with adults, including two charitable organisations and have also been a Listening Volunteer with the Samaritans since 2009.
I offer a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment for you to share your thoughts and feelings. I aim to help you understand what is going on for you emotionally and work with you to find a way forward. I work with adolescents, young people and adults on a one to one basis, offering open ended and time limited counselling.
My private practice is based in Redhill where I work Tuesday - Friday, offering daytime and evening appointments. I am in easy access of a bus stop, offer off road parking and wheelchair access. As part of East Surrey Counselling Group in Godstone, I am available on Monday afternoons and evenings. Sessions last for 50 minutes, once a week.
Please feel free to contact me so that we can discuss your child's or your individual needs and how counselling may be able to help you.
