About me

In time of need it helps to speak whith an experienced, understanding, and supportive professional.

Hello, I am Marc, a therapist with eight years of experience, and a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), and I am here to help you with the unique challenges in your life. I see my job as facilitating self-discovery, by listening deeply to the words, and beyond the words spoken in therapy, to let you find your true self, with all its growth, depth, and meaning. A discovery which truly is priceless.

I am a Humanistic Integrative Therapist, and while I am trained in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Attachment Theory, Gestalt Therapy, Transactional Analysis, Experiential Therapy, Systemic Therapy, and Psychodynamic Therapy, and use elements of these forms of therapy, I feel very close to the Person-centered approach to therapy. It is an approach which gives you as a client a maximum amount of autonomy in choosing how your therapy will look like, and focuses on you being fully heard without being judged.

I believe everybody deserves to be the best version of themselves. And You deserve to be at your best. 
Let me know how I can help.

With best wishes for your future,


MINERVA -Inner Wisdom-

Ich biete auch Psychotherapie auf Deutsch an.
Mujhe thodi bahut Hindi aur Urdu aati hai.

Our first session will be an assessment of the issues that bring you to counselling, and it will be a chance for us to see if we can work together. This first in-depth assessment session will cost £25.

The fee for all following sessions will be £45.
A session lasts 55 minutes, which gives us some extra time for business, getting a drink, using the toilet, or similar.

Business contract, presentation, and workshop fees are set by negotiation.

Further information

Please be aware that I have only appointments left for Thursdays and Fridays at the moment.

If you intend to come by car, please let me know, and I will reserve you a free parking space behind the practice.
