Counselling and Psychotherapy for South East London.

Welcome to my website.

My name is Annie Rimmer and I am a qualified counsellor and psychotherapist in Sydenham,near Forest Hill in South East London. I am a UKCP registered psychotherapist, (since 1997), and have thirty years’ experience of working in a client-centred, relational style as a counsellor and psychotherapist.
In these uncertain, worrying and challenging times we need more than ever access to internal resources: the ability to calm ourselves and regulate our minds, emotions and bodies; the ability to stay connected to ourselves, those we love and the wider community; the ability to hold onto hope and to think creatively, to reach out in new ways, with our words, our hearts, to hold understanding and compassion for ourselves and others as we struggle to find a way to live wholeheartedly in our broken world.

What I offer

I am passionately convinced of the efficacy of psychotherapy to bring about change in people’s lives, first and foremost their relationships with themselves, then inevitably with their partners, their parents and children, siblings, friends and colleagues. In this way psychotherapy is also a political undertaking, an agent for change.

People who feel comfortable in their own skin, who are confident and self aware who can reflect and think effectively about what is going on in their lives, their families, their work places, their community and the wider world feel happier, are likely to be more involved, actively in charge of their lives, make good decisions, and feel healthier physically and mentally. They also experience more joy, pleasure,and contentment as well as being more able to deal with the difficult things life holds for all of us.

Whether counselling or psychotherapy, it is not always an easy process, and requires courage and a real commitment to change, but the rewards can be life changing and life-long. This has been my own experience and that of many of my clients over the years.

I work in confidence from my quiet, comfortable consulting room in Sydenham, near Forest Hill, Dulwich and Crystal Palace in South East London, and this is where you might contact me if you are:

  • suffering with anxiety, stress or panic
  • feeling dissatisfied with life; stuck, despairing or depressed,
  • feeling empty, lonely, or isolated.
  • feeling that aspects of yourself are unacceptable or that you are worthless or wrong
  • surviving a bereavement or loss and needing some help to get through
  • preoccupied with fear of failure or feeling that you are not living up to your potential
  • concerned about childhood memories or events that you can’t forget or shake off
  • having work-related difficulties
  • finding relationships difficult, feeling unable to leave an unhealthy or abusive relationship, or despairing about ever making a healthy, lasting partnership
  • experiencing health problems, disabilities or a diagnosis that you feel unable to come to terms with
  • feeling out of control of your life or behaviour, not being the person you know you could be

    It’s difficult to cover everything in a list and sometimes we are not even sure what the problem is, or just want to find a way to move on in our lives. Whatever your concern, or if you just want to know more about what I offer as a counsellor and psychotherapist then please do click on some of the links above and don’t hesitate to contact me to discuss things in more detail. You will be very welcome.
