Marie Feltham. Member BACP. Post Graduate Diploma in Counselling. Msc.CQSW
I am a warm, experienced and empathic counsellor having worked and studied for many years to Post Graduate level.
My aim is to help you to identify the exact causes of your difficulties.Good mental health is just as essential to living a happy life as is good physical health and I believe both need to be in harmony. Given the awareness and tools, you can learn to manage your mind and your life to move towards a rewarding and positive future.
Whatever brings you to me, I will endeavour to establish a warm, creative, supportive partnership with you based on trust, mutual respect and openness. Research indicates that it is this successful collaboration, above all else, which has the power to bring you healing, hope and happiness.
I use the latest research and evidence based practice to help you to resolve your difficulties in a time efficient way.
Please feel free to inquire about any issue with which you need help.
Training, qualifications & experience
Life can be tough sometimes. I can help you to rebalance your life by resolving your difficulties. These may include depression, anxiety, trauma, panic disorders or attacks, PTSD, phobias and OCD to name but a few.
I can also provide focused and timely help with relationship issues, both at home and at work. Help through divorce, separation, loss, health issues, addiction, complex grief, and change management. I will help you to reconnect with your strengths and develop self confidence.I also offer relaxation training, mindfulness-based techniques, compassionate mind training, and help to resolve sleep difficulties and insomnia.
As I have managed workplace counselling services both in Higher Education and the NHS I am familiar with the unique challenges presented to staff working in these environments. I can advise on stress reduction strategies, occupational health issues and critical incident response.
