Marsha Sutcliffe- MBACP Registered Member
St. Stephens Primary Care Health Centre
St. Stephens Walk
Hello my name is Marsha and I offer you a warm, safe, confidential and non-judgmental space, where you can feel free to explore your experience of life and express your thoughts and feelings about the difficulties you are facing.
I can help you to understand yourself and to discover and strengthen your own inner resources so that you can then make decisions about what, if any changes you wish to make in your life. You may understand where your problems lie, or it may not be so clear, but you do know that you feel unable to cope as usual with everyday life. It can help to talk to someone neutral who is trained to listen with warmth and kindness and accept us for who we are.
As well as my private practice, I also work within GP surgeries for the Bariatric Consultancy 4Healthy Weight Team, helping people work through their relationship with food and their emotional eating often linked to childhood maltreatment including Childhood Sexual Abuse (CSB).
Grief, Loss, Addiction, Depression, Anxiety, Low Self-Esteem and Trauma are also predominate factors.
I have also volunteered within a community counselling setting, carrying out longer term therapy and for Kent University's Well Being Team where I deliver 1-2-1 counselling for a range of presenting problems to students and staff, with the aim of enabling them to become more effective in their life, inside and outside University.
Trained as an integrative counsellor, I offer short term focused and longer term in depth counselling and psychotherapy for a wide range of issues. These include generalised anxiety, depression, difficulties with relationship, stress, bereavement, childhood trauma and abuse, addiction, lack of self-esteem and confidence.
