Welcome to Anne Kehoe Counselling and Psychotherapy in Rayleigh

Working With Me

Hi, I’m Anne Kehoe, thanks for visiting my website. I am a psychotherapist and counsellor working in Rayleigh and online.

Are you unhappy? Is life getting on top of you? People come to counselling for many reasons. For example you could be feeling low, depressed, anxious, struggling with your anger, or feeling stuck finding it difficult to make even small decisions.

I work with adults of all ages, backgrounds and sexual orientation. I have 18 years counselling experience including with the NHS and in private practice.

“Help” said the Horse.

-Charlie Mackesy.

Finding oneself looking for counselling can be daunting and finding the right therapist can be a difficult with so much choice as there are many different types of counsellor and therapy. Counselling or 'talking therapy' can be very helpful to explore your feelings, talk through any problems or issues affecting you, and your life.

Please contact me by phone, email or text if you would like to take the next step and book a session or have an initial chat to see how you feel talking to me. I have a range of fees according to individual circumstances and can offer reduced fees to those on low income. You do not need to be referred by your GP, simply telephone or email to arrange an initial meeting. I will arrange an appointment as soon as possible.

Does it feel like everything is getting on top of you?

Maybe you just don't feel right but aren't sure what is wrong? Could you benefit from a place to explore your thoughts and feelings? It can be difficult to take the first step into counselling. You maybe thinking to yourself: "Why can't I pull myself together and get on with my life!"

At any time of life we can experience emotional difficulties which may feel overwhelming and affect our ability to cope with life.
