Carolyn Marshall MBACP (Accred) Counsellor, Supervisor
I am a BACP accredited Counsellor working with both individual clients and couples. My approach offers help to people who are facing difficulties such as anxiety, depression, bereavement, health problems, low self esteem, relationship issues, stress and many others. I integrate aspects of psychodynamic, person-centred and cognitive approaches into my work, in order to provide the most helpful approach for each client.
People decide to come into counselling for many reasons: Perhaps you are feeling sad, anxious, confused or lost? Are you experiencing difficulties in your relationships with friends or family, or problems at work? May be you are facing a difficult decision or choice. Or are you simply feeling that you would like to take time to reflect on your life, to understand yourself better and to make some changes?
My training and experience enables me to help you to work through some of the areas which concern you now, as well as understanding the impact which previous relationships and life experiences may be having. I believe in counselling as a collaborative process where each client is the "expert" on their own life, and where together we can makes sense of your feelings and thoughts, which in turn can help you to bring about change.
I provide a safe and therapeutic environment where you can explore the issues that concern you in a non-judgemental atmosphere of support, compassion and confidentiality.
I am also able to offer Supervision to fellow Counsellors on an Individual or Group basis.

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.

The first 50 minute appointment has a charge of £20. This session gives the opportunity for us to meet, and for you to find out a bit more about counselling with me. If you then decide you feel comfortable and wish to pursue counselling with me subsequent sessions last for 50 minutes and are charged at a rate of £40 for individual clients and £45 for couples.
I have a backgorund of many years' experience in pastoral work. Counselling takes place in a relaxed, confidential environment, and I am easily accessible to clients from Fleet, Farnborough, Farnham, Basingstoke and Camberley.
Contracts may be short or long term, and this is something we can discuss at the initial appointment.
