Marianne Hewson BA (Hons), MBACP (Accred)
Is depression, anxiety, stress and anger stopping you from getting what you want out of your life? Looking for an answer to behaviour that doesn't feel like 'you'? Maybe PTSD or childhood trauma is making it difficult for you to be the person you would like to be? The right therapy changes peoples lives, helps them fulfill their potential. Though I specialise in the use of Sensorimotor Psychotherapy and EMDR to help with trauma, whether recent or in the past, I wellcome clients to bring any issue. My practice in Winchester is within 5-10 min walk from the train station and 2 min from nearest bus stop. There is easy parking outside. I trained as a Person Centred Counsellor and that is still the foundation for all the work I do. I aim to provide a confidential and non-judgemental environment working both short and long term.
Training, qualifications & experience
I initially trained as a Bereavement Counsellor and went on to do a BA(Hons) in Person Centred Counselling at Metanoia Institute where I also trained as a supervisor. I am trained in Sensorimotor Psychotherapy Level III and EMDR for treatment of trauma, developmental issues and neglect etc. This is a body centred therapy, acknowledging that our body holds memories of events, as well as the emotions and narrative memory, which can be worked through in therapy. Working with the body in this way seem to lower the risk of re-traumatisation. I have many years experience working with bereavement, domestic violence, rape and sexual abuse, sexuality, gender and a wide range of life’s issues. I have worked with clients of different minorities and as I am Swedish myself, I know how difficult it can be to talk about emotional issues in a foreign language. I am an accredited member of BACP, member of EMDR Association UK and the Sensorimotor Psychotherapy Institute (UK).
As well as therapy I offer one-to-one supervision sessions in my private practice and to organisations.
Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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.
