Marianne Johnson, Counselling and Psychotherapy. Registered MBACP
Hello, I am a fully qualified integrative psychotherapist and counsellor working in Bath and London. Working integratively means I trained in a range of therapeutic approaches. This allows me to tailor my sessions to each individual client. Through my work as a therapist in a GP practice and as a counsellor in a university I have experience in treating a wide range of issues including anxiety, depression, sexual abuse, low self-esteem, identity issues, self harm and eating issues.
I offer both short term counselling and longer-term psychotherapy. My intergrative method incorporates psychodynamic, humanistic, existential, body psychotherapy, attachment theory and contemporary relational psychotherapy models.
I have a Diploma in Integrative Counselling and am a registered MBACP, abiding by their code of ethics in practice. I am a founding partner of The Thought House Partnership.
We can start by having a conversation on the phone, or a one-off initial meeting to answer any questions you may have and give you a sense of what I may be able to offer you.
There is a growing awareness of the need to support our mental wellbeing. You may be experiencing relationship issues, anxiety, addiction, depression, low self-esteem or have a sense that some part of your life just isn’t quite working for you and have a desire to understand why.
Squashing down our uncomfortable feelings and fears usually only provides temporary relief and while confronting your true feelings is not always an easy process, embarking on therapy can be a transformative experience.
