Marcus Howard - MBACP Registered Counsellor
I am an MBACP registered Person-Centred Counsellor/Psychotherapist; helping people of all ages and backgrounds overcome a range of issues, in a non-judgemental manner. The Person-Centred Counsellor believes that all clients have within themselves vast resources for development. They have the capacity to grow towards the fulfillment of their unique identities and make sense of their own experiences.
My role as a Counsellor/Psychotherapist is to help you achieve this. Over the years, I have worked at a range of Counselling services, and have become more adept at supporting individuals from a variety of backgrounds.
I decided to pursue a career in Counselling after working in a high-performing, corporate organisation in the City of London for many years. My desire to help others drew me towards Psychotherapy, and after training extensively and working at a number of voluntary Counselling practices; I eventually started up my own private practice in the City where I work as a Counsellor/Psychotherapist full-time, whilst continuing to work at the voluntary Counselling charities. Since starting out as a Counsellor, I have witnessed the positive change in people, which has confirmed the importance of this profession and increased my passion for supporting mental health.
I believe that people are resilient. Given the right environment, and the opportunity to speak freely about their experiences; the individual can accept who they are and reconnect with themselves. The purpose of my role is to provide this environment; drawing on my professional experience and qualifications to ensure you are given the support you need.
My practice is conveniently located only 5 minutes' away from Angel, Barbican and Old Street tube stations. You can reach these stations via the Northern line, Circle line, Hammersmith and City line and Bakerloo line.
Due to my flexible schedule, I am able to see clients during the day and the evening, and will always do my best to accommodate you at the earliest possibility.
'The Person-Centred approach is about emotional intimacy: it becomes increasingly transformative as emotional contact deepens. Understanding with the head is important, but not as important as understanding with the heart.' Janet Tolan (2003)
