Marie-Claire Arrowsmith MA MBACP reg Integrative Psychotherapist/Counsellor
Life can be challenging and in order to overcome adversity sometimes we have to find and develop our inner resources.Professional counselling helps us to gain insight to ourselves to understand who we are, why we feel what we feel and how best to achieve what is right for us. Whether it is one particular issue on your mind or more generally the challenging aspects of life, professional counselling helps to overcome problematic emotional issues.
Finding a therapist can be difficult, which is why I offer an initial consultation with no commitment to continue at a reduced rate . This session allows you to judge whether you feel comfortable talking to me and whether or not counselling is what you want at this time. It is not always easy making these decisions and feeling pressured to commit can make it harder.
I work in a number of counselling settings and see private clients at the Counselling Studio in Petersfield, the Haslemere Clinic.

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.
