About me

Hello, I’m Marina Broadley and I specialise in women’s health and well-being. I help women who are struggling with painful symptoms such as depression, grief, anxiety, panic, and sadness.

Our lives can throw up all kinds of painful experiences. Sometimes emotions, thoughts and feelings can be almost unbearable. It’s so hard to keep everything together when you are struggling to cope with your feelings.

I’m currently taking on new clients for daytime and evening sessions. My private practice is in heart of Kirby Muxloe, Leicester LE9. Its a leafy and peaceful location for women to come for counselling sessions. You will find more about me right here:

I also provide small group and individual mindfulness and breath-work sessions.

Women’s experiences

There are many painful experiences that women are faced with at different stages of their lives:

Infertility. Loss of babies. Their own fractured childhoods. Partners. Sexual matters. Sexuality...

...Abortion. Transitions. Midlife issues. Body image. Society pressures. Post natal suffering. Pre natal suffering. Empty nests. Loss of loved ones. Menopause. Illness. Breast cancer. Cancer. Relationship to food, Maternal issues, Mother-Daughter issues, Loss...

Counselling helps you to resolve what hurts. Below all the horrible symptoms of depression, unhappiness and anxiety we can often see what really matters. This is where the counselling is most needed. This is where I can help you.

Training, qualifications & experience

I'm Marina Broadley, a BACP Accredited Register counsellor. I specialise in women’s health and wellness through all stages of the life cycle.

My training in Contemporary Psychodynamic Counselling began in 2002. This was an incredibly intense 4 year programme run by the University of Leicester. I think it was probably the most enlightening and transformational experience of my life.

I qualified with a distinction. A tremendous amount of heart-opening work had taken place and it needed to.

I have worked as a school and college counsellor in Leicestershire for a good few years, loved every minute of it and to see the difference counselling made to those youngsters was something I could never have imagined. I launched my first private practice, 14 years ago.

My experience includes helping people through some very painful and distressing experiences. Please feel welcome to get in touch.

Kind wishes,

Other areas of counselling I deal with

The above is just a guideline. For example, many women contact me about stress or because of relationship issues and discover that what lies behind these difficulties is the real problem.

Many of the women I see come to counselling not because they feel in crisis, but more because they feel unhappy, worried, alone, unfulfilled and have a gnawing sense that there has to be more to life.

Further information

Available Appointments:

One of the many benefits of private counselling is that you are not left for months on a waiting list. People need to feel able to come to counselling a the point when life feels difficult. They need the freedom to choose who they sense 'feels right' for them and who is available at times that fit in with their lives.
