Marc Freeman, Adv.Dip., MBACP, Prac.Dip.
I can help you learn ways to cope with and overcome a range of difficult emotions, including anxiety, depression, relationship issues, anger and stress, and manage your thoughts and moods in a more productive way to lead to a healthier mental environment with a greater sense of self worth and confidence in who you are. I like to work in a down to earth manner, I have been through some tough times myself and having come through the other side I decided to use this experience alongside training to help others do the same.
I also have vast experience working with Teenagers in Secondary Schools successfully dealing with a range of Emotional and Behavioural problems, including depression, anxiety, self-harming, OCD, and other conditions. I have successfully transferred this work into my Practice, and offer this alongside my work with Adults.
I provide a safe and non judgmental environment for you to talk through things in a way where you will not be judged, but valued on the person you are and difficulties you are going through, offering a free 30 minute introductory session to make sure you are comfortable with how I work. I have been highly successful in my work, with many very satisfied clients over the last 8 years.
I am continually expanding my knowledge so as to provide the best service possible to anyone I work with working from a purpose built studio in my garden, which is easily accessible and I provide off street parking.
