Marie-Louise Scott. Humanistic Therapist - MBACP(Reg/Accred)BA (Hons)
Kingston Upon Thames
I am an experienced Registered and Accredited psychotherapeutic counsellor, and use an integrative model of therapy to provide safe, gentle, non-judgemental and confidential counselling. You will have my support to explore all aspects of yourself and your life, to develop and enhance those aspects that are useful and positive and decrease the power of those that are not. Therapy is most successful within a relationship based on mutual honesty and trust and the connection that develops from this, and it is this relationship that supports the process of therapy. I combine Humanistic and Psychodynamic approaches with ideas from Gestalt, Systemic and Transpersonal therapies to work with all aspects of each person.
My private practice is based in Hove and Kingston, both with bus stops within a 5 minute walk and on street parking.

If you are experiencing anxiety and/or depression or any other difficult thoughts and feelings due to issues with current relationships or past experiences then counselling may offer a solution.
The intention of both counselling and therapy is to help to raise your awareness of your thoughts and feelings as well as your needs, and how you respond when relating to others. This increased awareness and knowledge of yourself can allow you greater choice in your responses and can also facilitate changes without having to force them.
The process of attending to all these responses: physical, mental and emotional, positive and negative, to the events in your life, large and small, now and in the past, enables us to explore the impact they had on you and which you may still be holding on to.
This work can also offer the possibility of healing emotional wounds that may have been causing difficulties for many years.
I am happy to talk about what you might need and what I can offer either on the phone or via email and offer a free initial assessment to discuss this in more detail.
