Marina Palmer, MA, Dip. Couns., BSc, MBACP
59A Chesson Road
97 Mortimer Street
I am a BACP registered counsellor working with a broad range of clients. People often come to see me because they are feeling depressed or anxious for a variety of reasons. They might have been affected by life events or changes in circumstance, such as bereavement, a relationship breakdown, the loss of a job, a difficult pregnancy or a traumatic birth. Others may be feeling stressed at work, or overwhelmed with caring responsibilities, and struggling to find the balance. Some are having trouble with relationships or in issues relating to sexuality or gender. Many of us occasionally feel “stuck” and don’t know exactly why.
Whether you are experiencing one of these issues or another that’s not listed, or you simply want to talk to someone outside of your day-to-day life in order to gain a different perspective, I want to support you as best I can.
While I love working with people from all walks of life, my own background in the arts means that I feel particularly well suited to working with those in the creative industries, such as writers, producers and performing artists. My other area of special interest is in working with parents, both new and more established, and the specific challenges they face.
I am currently available to see clients in W1 near Oxford Circus and in West Kensington W14. I work Monday-Friday from 10:00 am-3:00 pm.
Here's how to get started:
- Please contact me by telephone or email to discuss your situation.
- If we both feel it's the right fit, we will set up an appointment to meet.
- All communications between us are confidential, and I reply to all messages promptly.
