Marilyn Anim-Addo-Allen MBACP MBA
Adolescent & Teenage Therapeutic Counsellor, Bereavement Counselling within easy reach of N7, N4, N10, N5, N19 N8.
I am a MBACP Registered Adolescent Therapeutic Counsellor (Using the Arts) and a Qualified Bereavement Counsellor who has worked with a variety of issues, particularly current or unresolved adolescent issues. My background working as a lecturer and pastoral carer informs my work as a Counsellor. I am able to bring my skills of heightened empathy, observational skills and counter-transference into the work, broadening the experience for the client. I work in a warm, confidential and safe place with the aim to work through all issues brought to therapy for a manageable life. My Private Practice is set in an empathic and non-judgemental environment in Crouch End where space is created for you to talk, or use the arts to express thoughts and feelings.
My approach is Integrative Art meaning I draw from Gestalt, Transactional Analysis, Humanistic and Psychodynamic approaches, by tailor-making treatment plans to meet the needs of my clients. A therapeutic relationship is gradually formed between my client and I through our work together. During sessions we use the arts (drawing, body movements, story telling, sand tray work, music, sculpture, puppetry and poetry) to help support the process. I aim to offer support and encourage personal development of my clients in a non-judgemental environment. You need not be an artist to use this approach.
Issues I have dealt with include:
Adolescent/Teenage/ Child related Issues
Anger Management Issues
Work Related Issues
Low Self Confidence Issues
Self Harm/Suicidal Thoughts
Low Self Esteem
Sexuality/ Sex related issues
Academic Issues e.g. Exam Stress/Anxiety, Coping with Appeals, Confidence with Presentations/Group Work
