Anne-Marie Beare MBACP - Grief / Loss Counselling & Counselling for Anxiety
There are times in our lives when we struggle and could really do with some help.
As with many of my colleagues I am trained to work with a variety of mental health issues and I have helped people who have experienced many different concerns. However, there are a couple of areas where I have a special interest.
Working with Loss / Grief Counselling
There are many different types of loss; you may have experienced a bereavement, the ending of a relationship, illness, retirement, a loss of trust, fertility issues, loss of identity, a trauma or a change in your circumstances.
You may feel stuck, in shock, overwhelmed, hurt, vulnerable, angry, depressed and anxious. Grief counselling can help you look at your painful emotions in a safe and careful way in order to help you come to terms with the loss you have experienced.
Issues with anxiety
Many of us experience anxiety in our lives. However, when your anxiety becomes long term and so intense it becomes overwhelming it can be incredibly difficult and at times debilitating. Anxiety can take on many forms such as panic attacks, feelings of dread, nervousness, compulsive disorders, stress and phobias. You may find it hard to ‘switch off’ and have difficulty in rationalising the voice that’s telling you things are not ok. Counselling can help you look at what is causing these anxious feelings and provide tools to help you manage them in order to support you to break through your anxiety.
If you feel that I can help or if you any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. I am passionate about helping people to resolve painful feelings and challenges. I understand that the initial step of asking for help can be the hardest. However difficult it may be, it is a sign of strength which will support you through the counselling process.

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).
