Hi, my name is Anne-Marie and I am an MBACP registered counsellor working with young people (aged 13 years and older), couples and individual 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. More recently I completed my training with OCN London to work with Children and Young People from the age of 5 years old. I have also trained as a Couples Counsellor, helping both parties to resolve issues in their relationship, together.
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 offer a safe, confidential and non judgmental 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, and couples together, offering open ended and time limited counselling.
For many years I have worked with children & young people, individual adults and couples both in private practice, schools and for three charitable organisations. I have been a listening volunteer with the Samaritans since 2009 and work for the Lucy Rayner Foundation as an Early Intervention Counsellor, supporting young people in times of crisis whilst they may be waiting for further treatment.
My private practice is based in Redhill where I work Tuesday - Thursday, 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 Mondays during the day. Sessions last for 50 minutes, once a week.
Please feel free to contact me so that we can discuss your child's or your needs and how counselling may be able to help you.

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.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
