Mary Wilson B.A. (Psychology), Cert.Ed., P.G.Dip.Integrative Psychotherapy
I am a fully trained and qualified counsellor and psychotherapist registered with the British association of counsellors and psychotherapists
Everybody experiences difficulties at some time in their life. Sometimes it is not easy to talk to the people who are close to you. I can offer you acceptance, understanding and honesty, giving you a safe place in which you can explore the difficulties you are experiencing.
I am a counsellor with the Survivors Trust who offer counselling to survivors of sexual violence which includes adult surviors of sexual abuse and people who are involved in the court process. I also offer counselling in the local community where I have worked with depression, anxiety, abuse, relationship and parenting difficulties, OCD and various other difficulties. I am particularly interested in working with trauma especially with survivors of abuse, emotional physical and sexual, also with anxiety and/or depression.
My service is completely confidential. I work within the BACP ethical framework.
I am passionate about counselling and regard it as a privilege to be able to work with people looking for change in their lives
I offer one to one counselling with the flexibility of both daytime and evening appointments in a dedicated counselling room in Leyland
Training, qualifications & experience

I also work for the Preston branch of Survivors Trust, working with adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse, victims of sexual violence and relatives and carers of survivors and victims.
