Marie-Pascale Newcombe MBACP Counsellor/Psychotherapist
51 Colney Hatch Lane
25a Eleanor Road
I am an Integrative Counsellor/Psychotherapist and a member of the BACP. if you are considering Counselling/Psychotherapy you are probably thinking that there are things you would like to change about yourself and your life. Perhaps you are feeling stuck with a situation and are unsure what to do about it or perhaps you are experiencing difficulties in relationships as well as feelings of depression, anxiety or physical symptoms. As a therapist, I offer a safe and confidential space for you to explore and discover what may be going on for you, so that you may find ways to change what is not working for you.
Psychotherapy is a "special" kind of conversation between the Psychotherapist and their client. Typically, during a session, I encourage you to speak about what is happening for you in the present. However, there are often patterns detrimental to a person's well-being that are repeated, carried over from early childhood that can continue to cause problems during one's life or at specific times of crisis. The work of psychotherapy is to bring such unconscious patterns to light, so you, the client may become aware of them, and find ways to make changes and re-connect with your own unique creativity.
Although I am an Integrative Counsellor/Psychotherapist, my practice is firmly based in Psychodynamic/ Psychoanalytic theory and in particular Lacanian theory. However, research shows that the quality of the relationship between client and therapist is directly linked to the successful outcome of the therapy sessions. I am friendly, open, non-judgemental, supportive and a member of The Relational School.
I offer short-term and long-term Psychotherapy. During the first session, we will discuss what is bringing you to therapy and whether therapy can be helpful to you. We will agree a number of sessions at the end of which we will discuss how you feel about the therapeutic process, how beneficial it is for you and whether you would like to continue for more sessions. Counselling sessions can vary from short-term 6 weeks to mid-term 6 months to a year and Psychotherapy is long-term (1 or 2 years or open-ended.
