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 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 have also trained in Sensorimotor Psychotherapy 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 and gender issues. I work at a University Counselling Service where I see student with a wide range of 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 Metanoia Institute and the Sensorimotor Psychotherapy Institute (UK).
As well as therapy I offer one-to-one supervision sessions in my private practice and to organisations.
