Annabelle Boyes - BA Hons (MBACP) Registered
25 East Street
It can be challenging to recognise that you need to talk to a therapist and it takes courage to pick up the phone and make your first call. It can be daunting to know what to expect.
Whether you are looking to find more balance in your life, are feeling anxious, depressed or are having relationship issues, I offer a safe, non-judgmental and confidential place for you to take some time-out and explore your thoughts and feelings. Helping you to create a more meaningful and fulfilling life.
If you feel you could do with some help please see below....
I am a Registered member of the BACP and work to the BACP ethical framework. I offer counselling and Psychotherapy services in Farnham and Hindhead, in Surrey. I provide a safe, nurturing and completely confidential environment in which your thoughts and feelings can be discussed and explored openly. My door is open to anyone regardless of the nature of their difficulties, so please get in touch even if your problem is not listed below.
Coming to terms with getting help either for a recent difficult event or a past experience can be overwhelming at times and can sometimes feel painful to begin with. I work with clients to help them gain a greater insight and understanding of themselves and how they relate to and understand others.
I am able to offer both short term and long term therapy for a variety of presenting issues, with adults the elderly and adolescents from diverse backgrounds:
- relationship issues
- generalised anxiety
- seasonal affective disorder SAD
- postnatal depression
- family issues
- work issues
- separation and divorce
- low-self esteem
"I went to see Annabelle to help me make sense of grief and a series of bad relationship patterns. I had no expectations of her and initially thought I'd only go the once! Six months later, my life has completely turned around. Annabelle helped me find answers through all my confusion, she supported me whilst I made the changes I needed to make and was my guide through a very difficult time. I am happier than I've ever been and I could not have done it without Annabelle's outstanding work with me. I am a convert! To anyone thinking about seeking counselling, I urge you to go and see Annabelle and give her a chance to make the same fantastic difference to your life. Thank you so much Annabelle."
"I had just been diagnosed with a long term health condition and I was feeling very sad and angry. I had suffered from depression years before but with the sudden impact of my illness I felt unable to cope. Annabelle really helped me to come to terms with my condition and some of the changes I needed to make in my life. She was very supportive and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for help." Tony
