Marvet Simpson MBACP Registered Counsellor
Faith is Taking the First Step.
As a counsellor, I am able to offer you sincere support. I can empathise, with a range of emotions that many people are left with as result of life's challenges, and their difficulty in managing life. Your situations can be the source of many mental and emotional challenges, and may lead you to ask the question "Why me?" I would like to help you answer that question.
Along with my own personal experiences, I have taken the time to add to these through accredited training and specialising in particular areas. My reflections also demonstrate my growth, and chart my journey, one that has been both rewarding and fulfilling, I will like to help you on your own personal journey.
I am an Integrative Therapist (working with Person Centred, CBT and Psychodynamic) and also a registered member of the BACP. During the counselling process I will apply the appropriate theory and practice inorder to help you facilitate change. For a lot of men and women, taking the first step to seek counselling is often a very difficult one, but once you have taken that step you have started your journey that will begin to lead you on to emotional,mental and physical well being, and empower you to make the changes to manage the situations in your life.
I have no waiting list, and can see you at a mutually convenient time soon after contact. The counselling room pictured below is a warm comfortable environment where you will be offered a secure base to share your story
