Denise Marshall, BA (Hons), Integrative Counsellor and Supervisor, Reg. MBACP
Trying to find the right counsellor for you can often be a difficult path to take, especially when there are a considerable number to choose from but I believe this is an all important first step when entering into therapy as it is the therapeutic relationship that is integral to the therapy itself.
Therefore, if having looked at my counselling directory profile and details on my website, you feel I may be the right counsellor to meet your needs, please contact me by calling, texting or e-mailing and we can have a chat about how we could best work together.
I am an integrative counsellor, which means I use a range of therapeutic approaches to meet the needs of my clients and I have 10 years experience of working therapeutically with clients across Essex and London facing a wide range of issues. I am a registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) and I adhere to their framework of standards and ethics.
I currently work as a counsellor within a counselling charity and NHS setting for adults and a counselling agency for children, young people and families. I also provide professional training, development and supervision as well as having my own private practice.
I believe that with the challenges and difficulties most people face at different times in their lives having somebody to talk to and share thoughts, feelings, emotions with can be really pivotal in helping to manage and cope with these difficult times and help find a way forward.
My aim, therefore, is to provide you with a safe, confidential space to do this, whilst offering the utmost respect for whatever issues, difficulties you are experiencing, in order that we can work together to explore and understand your challenges and how they are impacting on you and your life and ultimately help you find your way forward and get to where you want to be.
