Elland Wellbeing Centre
Hi my name is Marisa, I am a highly qualified and experienced counsellor/psychotherapist based in the Elland Wellbeing Centre.
I am registered with the BACP (Registration number 058379).
I offer one to one counselling, on a short term (Brief Therapy) or on a long term basis.
My aim is to provide a comfortable, relaxed environment where clients can feel safe opening up about their feelings.
I work with all age groups; I have a lot of experience working with children and young people and I am currently based in a primary school for some of the week.
I treat all presenting concerns including depression, relationship issues, anxiety, self-esteem, abuse (recent or historic), bereavement, anger issues,redundancy, work stress, phobias, addictions and divorce/separation.
I enjoy helping people to free themselves from their problems, reach their potential and become the person they were meant to be or used to be.
I advocate talking therapies and the person-centered approach over labelling 'disorders' and prescribing medications.
I ask 'what happened to you?' not 'what's wrong with you?'.
Counselling allows people to use their own natural inner resources to bring about beneficial change.
I am qualified in Psychology Bsc (Hons) and Counselling and Psychotherapy (PG Dip).
I offer a free consultation over the phone or face to face as I feel its important that the patient I am treating feels comfortable and relaxed with myself to move forward within the sessions.
On average a patient will need 6 sessions.
If you would like to discuss the counselling I offer please email or call me.
