Marcus Howard - MBACP Registered Counsellor
137-149 Goswell Road
What can I offer you?
I am an MBACP registered Person-Centred Counsellor/Psychotherapist; helping people of all ages and backgrounds overcome a range of issues, in a non-judgemental manner. The Person-Centred Counsellor believes that all clients have within themselves vast resources for development. You have the capacity to grow towards the fulfillment of your unique identity and make sense of your own experiences.
How does this work?
During the sessions, we will work together to explore the issues you are faced with. The purpose of my role is to provide a collaborative environment; drawing on my professional experience and qualifications to ensure you are given the support you need.
Why did I become a Counsellor?
I decided to pursue a career in Counselling after working in a high-performing, corporate organisation in the City of London for many years. My desire to help others drew me towards Psychotherapy, and after training extensively and working at a number of voluntary Counselling practices; I eventually started up my own private practice in the City where I work as a Counsellor/Psychotherapist full-time, whilst continuing to work at the voluntary Counselling charities. Since starting out as a Counsellor, I have witnessed the positive change in people, which has confirmed the importance of this profession and increased my passion for supporting mental health.
Where am I based?
My practice is conveniently located only 5 minutes' away from Angel, Barbican and Old Street tube stations. You can reach these stations via the Northern line, Circle line, Hammersmith and City line and Bakerloo line.
If you're interested in starting counselling, please email me and we will arrange the first session at a time that is mutually beneficial for both of us. In that first session, we'll talk about what you want to get out of counselling. At the end of the session, if you're happy to continue, we will meet the same time each week for as long as you require.
