About me

Hi, my name is Marcia.

It takes courage to reach out for help and it takes time to find a therapist who best fits with you so I am happy for you to 'check me out', have a conversation and or arrange a session to find out if I am a good match for what you need.

Life is full of challenges and changes. My commitment is to offer a confidential space without judgment, giving you time to explore what you may be carrying over these past weeks, months or maybe even years, what may be troubling you and weighing you down, and together we will find what helps (and what doesn't!). 

We may meet face to face in a peaceful rural office or online if you prefer. Our first meeting is an opportunity for me to gather some information and for you to see how I work and if this is what you are looking for. I am an integrative therapist, interested in working with body, mind and heart as all of you is impacted by your experiences.

Sometimes when words are limited or stuck I may introduce some creative tools to help explore an issue (only if this is something you are happy to try).

 People come to me for all sorts of reasons, for example with PTSD, traumas, relationship issues, loss, anxiety, depression, stress, spiritual issues and dissociation disorders and many other issues.

To see the list below for a fuller list and feel free to ask what my experience is in your area(s) of concern.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am an experienced counsellor with 15+ years, who has benefited from good counselling training, and ongoing CPD and have been enriched with life experience, to walk alongside you.
