01487 840868 / 07880 586552
You are here because you, or someone you know needs support and help. You're now in the right place to receive all the help you need.
I offer Confidential Counselling in Cambridge and St Ives, Cambs.
Whatever your issue is, please contact me. I practice as an Accredited Counsellor and have 13 years substantial experience.
I can help you allievate your problem permanently utilising my different approaches. I am also listed on the Hypnotherapy and Life Coaching Directorys.
My well established Counselling practice helps clients with different issues such as depression, relationship problems, anger management, addiction, childhood issues, life changes, anxiety, panic attacks, low self confidence/esteem, couples counselling, and abuse. This list is by no means exhaustive and often clients seek help for a variety of issues.
Accredited member of BACP
I changed career from banking to Counselling in 2002 as I had suffered a major bereavement. I've had a lot of life experiences such as childhood issues, depression, divorce and having children which has enabled me to really understand how difficult and challenging life can be. I do have the ability to really connect with my clients and enable real change.
How can I help?
I offer a confidential, professional service underpinned by a sound knowledge of therapy, a very friendly approach and enthusiasm to help you resolve your issue.
Please feel free to contact me either by phone or email, where I will be more than happy to discuss your individual needs.
My training is very comprehensive and I use various models of counselling depending on the client and the issue. I don't believe 'one size fits all' and I prefer to help my clients holistically. That means for me, to tailor my approach to your needs. For example, one client may benefit from some short term counselling whereas another client would prefer and require a mixture of counselling and Hypnotherapy. We would discuss that together at the initial assessment session.
I am also qualified in Life Coaching.
What you can expect from your sessions
We meet at my private practice in Cambridge or near St Ives for sessions. The first appointment is an assessment which lasts between an hour and an hour and a half. It gives me time to build up a good picture of what you are experiencing, and also gives you a chance to meet me, ask me questions and explore what is going on in your life. We then discuss how many sessions you might need and how often you would need to see me- for example weekly or fortnightly, All subsequent sessions for individuals last fifty minutes and couples sessions are sixty minutes.
After the assessment, I am happy to arrange Skype sessions if you are restricted by time or distance.
We establish the goals of your therapy and work towards them, so at the end of your therapy you have accomplished what you had hoped for.

'Thanks Marie. It's really important for life in general that there are people in this world like you, who care for people and who are passionate about what they do. It really made a difference to me. the time we spent together gave me the perspective to understand myself better, and come to terms with my personal issues. Life is good again'
'I can now understand why I used to think and behave the way I did. My past had such an affect on me. But you unravelled all of it and put me back together again. You're a very special person and I wish you every success in your therapy career'.
'I can't believe our sessions have come to an end. You've been able to help where other therapists haven't. I wish I had had sessions with you years ago. Intuitive, caring, and gets right to the core. Thank you, thankyou, thankyou'.
'In such a short amount of time, I feel like my old self is back again. I was so miserable. You bought humour into the sessions and I always felt lighter when I left. I cant recommend you highly enough'
Thank you so much Marie for all of your help and support. You've changed my life around and I can't thank you enough. I'll never forget you'.
