Annabelle Boyes - BA Hons MBACP (Accred)
Are you experiencing difficulties in your life? It can often be challenging to ask for help and it may take a while to seek the right therapist.
Whether you are looking to find more balance in your life, are feeling anxious, depressed or are having relationship difficulties, 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 become more self-aware and finding a more fulfilling life.
If you feel you could do with some help please see below....
I am a Registered and Accredited member of the BACP and I work to the BACP ethical framework. I offer counselling and Psychotherapy services in Farnham 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 difficulties
- generalised anxiety
- seasonal affective disorder SAD
- EUPD (BPD)
- postnatal depression
- family issues
- work issues
- sexual abuse/rape
- 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

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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.
