Maureen Othen MBACP. Relate Registered Practitioner.
07753373472 / 07753373472
If you are not sure whether counselling is for you I do offer a one-off session. This could be an opportunity to explore the history of the problem and a little of your background. It might be that I can suggest other areas you might consider exploring. If you do decide to return (and there really is no obligation) we could arrange a few more sessions to see how it goes.
I am a B.A.C.P Accredited and Registered Counsellor/Psychologist. Mindful of boundaries I provide counselling in a safe, non-judgemental and trusting environment.
Alongside my private practice I continue to work for Relate as a Counsellor.
I work with couples who are trying to come to terms with affairs (physical and emotional), betrayal, depression, financial problems as well as many of the other issues that can make a relationship go wrong.
Much of my client work is with individuals coping with emotional distress, anxiety,depression, anger, bereavement, grief and trauma.
My practice is in Croydon and at Purley and both are accessible by Public Transport. They also offer good parking facilities.

Other areas of counselling I deal with
Emotionally focused therapy (EFT)
EFT is usually a short term (8-20 sessions), structured approach to couples therapy formulated in the 1980's and has developed alongside the science on adult attachment and bonding to expand understanding about what is happening in couple relationships and to guide therapists. In the last fifteen years, EFT is also used with families and individuals. A substantial body of research outlining the effectiveness of EFT now exists. Research studies find that 70-75% of couples move from distress to recovery and approximately 90% show significant improvements.

Following the initial consultation and should you wish to continue we might agree a number of sessions to begin with or take it on a week by week basis. If that is not the best option at this time we can discuss other modes of counselling or support that may be open to you.
I hold sessions in Purley (plenty of free parking directly outside the therapy room) and in Croydon just a one minute walk from the Church Street Stop on the Tram line. Both venues are very easy to access.
