About me

Relational Psychotherapy is based on the idea that who we are and how we relate to others is formed early on.

When we come to understand what we believe to be true about ourselves, we realise as well, that these beliefs come from the messages/responses others gave us at a very young age. Questioning these beliefs makes changes possible. The process of bridging the old ways with the new. Hence, the emphasis on the word – relational.

“You can’t change what’s going on around you, until you start changing what’s going on within you”
Benjamin Marr, Psychotherapist.

My name is Benjamin and I have been a practising psychotherapist & counsellor for the past 26 years. I have also written for the ‘Attachment Journal’ which is published by Karnac Books.

In this time I have worked with numerous client groups, and conducted training and supervison.

My specialities are working with LGBT issues, Immune Related conditions & addiction (including porn addiction). I also work within the disability field and have experience in depression & eating disorders.

Lastly I work with trauma, anger management, loss and bereavement and relationship issues where I have had many successes in the above fields.
