Richard Marsh MBACP Dip Counselling
With over 15 years experience, I believe that counselling can help people make the changes they need to live a happier and more fulfilling life. I've worked in family centres, women's refuge centres and am now working in private practice.
I provide non-judgemental counselling focused on each client's individual needs. This means I work at the client's own pace to help them to resolve any conflicts in their lives and empower them to be more comfortable with themselves.
Having been through many changes in my working career prior to starting out as a counsellor, I understand how difficult it is for those facing the stressful challenge of organisational change in the workplace. I initially decided to train as a counsellor in order to provide much needed support to people facing the continuing possibility of redundancy but have found myself working with a significantly broader range of issues since.
My Practice (Chaldon Counselling):
Counselling takes place in a safe and comfortable residential environment where parking is freely available. Counselling can be either short-term (usually 6-12 sessions) or longer term, depending upon each client's needs.
I offer an initial consultantation as an opportunity to meet and discuss the client's needs in counselling.
As a Member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) I am committed to working within their ethical guidelines.
