AnnaMaria Williams (MBACP)
Hello, I work in East Grinstead offering counselling services to individuals and couples. I work with adults and with young people from the age of 11 years.
I also offer psychosexual therapy and anger management sessions.
I will work together with you on whatever you would like to talk about - it may be you would like to talk through a particular issue you're experiencing at the moment to find some clarity and understanding, or perhaps you feel you need some additional support at a difficult time. We can discuss at an initial appointment whether counselling might be helpful to you right now. I offer a confidential and non-judgemental space to share, explore, reflect and come to understand what’s happening for you at this time in your life.
I work with a wide range of issues, including anxiety, depression, panic attacks, stress, self-harm, abuse, self-esteem, low confidence.
I have both personal and professional experience of working with autism.
I offer short term anger management counselling, usually 6 to 8 sessions, looking at the impact your anger is having on your life, triggers, behaviours and ways to understand and manage it differently.
I also work with sex and relationship difficulties, communication problems, sexual dysfunction, low desire, issues around gender identity and sexuality, sex addiction, among others.
I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy and a general member of the College of Sexual and Relationship Therapists.
If you would like to talk further, please contact me to arrange an initial appointment.
