Ann Rimmer BSc, MBACP Adv. Dip.
Are you wondering if counselling is the way forward for you? Maybe your life is proving very challenging and you are experiencing anxiety and unhappiness 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 to take and finding a counsellor you feel comfortable and able to work with can be daunting. Bearing all this in mind, if you would like to find out more, we could arrange an initial 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 and recognise the uniqueness of those I work with. I very much see the counselling relationship as being at the heart of the therapeutic work.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
