Holly Markin - Counsellor And Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist MBACP
Sometimes life can feel overwhelming and you just need that helping hand to get you back on track; or maybe there is something specific that you are struggling with at the moment.
I offer a warm, friendly and positive supportive space to discuss whatever is worrying you. We’ll take it at your pace so you feel safe and comfortable to explore your thoughts and feelings.
I can also help you to begin to identify what may be preventing you from doing what you want to do, or being who you want to be in life. So often it is the way we think about things that ends up working against us and I can help you to explore this and find more helpful ways of approaching life.
I have spent the last couple of years working closely with AnxietyUK helping people to build their resilience and face their fears. Anxiety is something that we all live with to some degree; it is an essential part of being human. However, sometimes it can feel like it is taking over and that is when seeking some additional support can be helpful.
I offer a professional, confidential service either face-to-face, over the phone or via Skype allowing greater flexibility to access therapy in a method that suits you and your current situation.
I work within the BACP Ethical Framework, have regular supervision to support my practice and I am fully insured.
