Marina Broadley MBACP Accredited Register Member
Hello, I’m Marina Broadley and I specialise in women’s health and well-being. Private counselling in a time of Covid-19 continues and I am helping women by offering safe sessions by phone or video. It’s a positive and effective way for us to connect therapeutically. Sessions during this time of Covid are reduced to £40.
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 main private practice is in heart of Kirby Muxloe, Leicester LE9. Its a leafy and peaceful location for women to come for counselling sessions.
My other practice is in the centre of Hinckley town LE10. This is a lovely counselling room within a modern professional clinic.
You will find more about me right here:
I also provide small group and individual mindfulness and breath-work sessions.
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. Miscarriage. 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.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Areas of counselling I deal with
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.
**All session by phone and video during the time of Covid are reduced by 20%. The fee is currently £40.
My in person session fee at Kirby Muxloe is £50.00 - not currently available
My in person session fee at Hinckley is £60.00 - not currently available
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.
