Marion Downey, BSc, MSc, MBACP, MBPS
43A Downing Street
Experienced therapist working with young people and adults. I offer daytime and evening appointments available from my private practice in Farnham town centre.
I am an experienced therapist and counsellor and have worked with adults and young people for over 15 years.
I offer safe, supportive and caring counselling and have a natural ability to empathise with my clients. I feel my experience in management, human resources and teaching has enriched my ability to work with people from diverse backgrounds.
I would describe my approach as integrative which includes humanistic therapies, psychodynamic therapy and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). My training allows me to draw from a wide range of psychological assessments and therapeutic techniques. I understand that not everything works for everyone and as such I am able to tailor my approach to your individual needs. I work on both short and long term basis.
I aim to build a secure and trusting relationship with my clients whilst providing a safe environment in which they can explore their problems, thoughts and feelings.
