Marcia Dixon MBACP Counselling Psychotherapist
Reading this is taking the first step in looking after yourself, investing something back into you. Whether life has always seemed hard or more lately it's feeling unmanageable, changes to how you feel and see it can give you the strength to get through it, to make changes, to find peace. How does that sound?
You don't have to go through it alone. Being listened to in a confidential, professional and relaxed atmosphere, can provide the setting and the right person, at the right time can provide that connection.
If you don't know where to start, book an appointment and we can work it out together.
Training, qualifications & experience
A qualified person centred (Humanistic) counsellor/psychotherapist and Registered Member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (MBACP), evidences my competency. Being a human being with life experience, as well as professional experience, adds to my understanding and desire to facilitate change in others.
I have worked with depression, anxiety, relationship struggles, changing identity, gender identity, self-harm, drug and/or alcohol problematic use, abuse, loss, guilt, shame and earlier life experiences to give some back-ground.
With 15+ years working 1-2-1 with people in a variety of settings, utilising Motivational Interviewing, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Person Centered styles, sessions are tailored to your needs.
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.
