Marji Coulson UKCP Accredited Psychotherapist And Counsellor
11 Derwent Road
I have been working as a psychotherapist and counsellor for many years and I have experience in working with a wide variety of issues. My practice is located in a quiet setting near to the centre of York and I offer both short-term counselling and longer term psychotherapy. I also see couples who are experiencing difficulties in their relationship.
My approached is respectful and non-judgmental. I aim to provide an empathic space for you to explore problems, to find new ways of dealing with troubling thoughts and feelings and to discover the resources you need in order to manage difficult situations in your life.
A key part of my work is the nature and quality of the relationship I establish with each person I see. Everyone is unique and so I work in different ways to encourage you to develop greater insight, awareness, and understanding of why problems have arisen and how change can happen.
Many people are struggling with emotional issues, which often means they can't find a way forward in their lives, they may feel stuck and frustrated or scared and apprehensive. We are all born with so much potential which often gets lost or buried as we go through childhood. Our work together can focus on finding the confidence and energy to re-discover your abilities, to make decisions and to have more fulfilling relationships.
