Emotional health

I offer caring, confidential & effective help with stress, anxiety and issues related to trauma. The sessions are unrushed, structured, solution-focused and evidence-based and the location discrete. My work draws on my background in Psychology & training as a Human Givens Psychotherapist.

Human Givens Psychotherapy is a solution-focused, evidence-based talking therapy which offers reliable, practical help in relieving a wide range of emotional & stress-related issues.

It is goal orientated and future-focused and sessions are structured. (Read testimonials from Doctors for this approach here). Read more about this approach.


After nearly 25 years (of seeking help) I still had incapacitating problems…Ann Marie identified the cause of my problems straight away and began using specific techniques, and helping me to make positive changes to my daily life, to help me to resolve them. Improvements started immediately and have continued. Human Givens Therapy is not like other therapies: it is practical and based on a thorough understanding of what human beings really need in order to thrive and be happy.

Ann Marie is a kind, calm and gentle person. I have invariably found her to be insightful, constructive and supportive and I can’t imagine anyone not feeling safe and comfortable with her.”

The experience of working with Ann Marie has changed me & my life for the better. It has given me focus, on what is important in my life. I have learnt self-control/belief and how to deal with people and situations that before I really struggled with. Also, it made me feel that I am a good person and can be happy. The tools that I gained from the sessions have really helped me to get my life back on track. Hand on heart, I felt at ease and that I could trust you and your judgement. Really, I can’t put into words how you have helped me. I have grown as a person and my close friends/family have all noticed the change. I highly recommend this service. People shouldn’t be afraid to look for help in my eyes and once they start opening up they will feel a weight lifting from their minds
