Dr Anne Marie Salm, CPsychol, AFBPsS, MInstGA
My career in Psychology and Psychotherapy spans several decades and has allowed me to acquire a wide range of clinical experience. I initially trained and worked in Germany, but have been living and working in the UK for more than 20 years and am fully bi-lingual in German and English.
What I can offer
My clients see me for a variety of reasons such as anxiety, depression, stress at work and relationship difficulties. Couples counselling has been a particular interest of mine since my training in Germany, and I have worked successfully with many couples who have struggled to resolve problems in their relationships.
I also see clients who have current stressful life issues and would like just one or a few consultations to help them think through their situation and find a resolution. I do not believe that everybody who seeks help needs long-term psychotherapy.
Psychological issues in a medical context
I am particularly interested in psychological issues in medical contexts. I have worked for many years in Medical Psychology, doing collaborative research with cardiologists, teaching medical students, running Balint groups for junior doctors, and supporting nurses and doctors who are involved in the care of people with degenerative neurological diseases. On the basis of this experience, I can offer support for people who experience stress in connection with medical problems and long-term illness, as well as for health professionals and relatives who care for them.
Supervision for counsellors, psychotherapists and group work
I provide supervision for psychodynamic, relational and integrative counselling and psychotherapy, and for various forms of group work. I can offer supervision on telephone or Skype.
My training and qualifications
In the UK, I qualified as a Chartered Clinical and Counselling Psychologist with the British Psychological Society (34447) and I am registered with the Health Professions Council (PYL20946). In addition, I trained as a Group Analyst and I am a qualified member of the Institute of Group Analysis.
Throughout my career, I have maintained a balance between working directly with people who need help for psychological difficulties, and teaching, research and training.
This is also reflected in my work, which until recently included part-time employment in London in the NHS as a Consultant Clinical Psychologist and Specialist in Group Analysis, and at Roehampton University as a Principal Lecturer on the Doctorate in Counselling Psychology, in addition to my private practice and consultancy. I have left the NHS and Roehampton this summer to concentrate on my private practice and other self-employed work. I have been involved in various training courses in Group Analysis and I am regularly working in Germany, training group analysts there.
My Practice is located in Sutherland Road, BN2 0EQ, close to Brighton College and Royal Sussex Hospital, with easy parking and good bus services.
Fees: For professionals in work I charge £70 per session, but I offer a reduction if your income is low. We’ll discuss the fees at our initial meeting.
