Marie Fillbrook BA MBACP Accred.
I offer an Integrative form of Counselling/Psychotherapy based upon the Person-Centered, Gestalt and Solution Focused Brief Therapy approaches. The way that we work will be very much based upon your needs.
I work in and around Winchester, Hedge End, Eastleigh and Southampton and offer confidential face to face and telephone counselling. This can often be helpful when coping with severe anxiety, depression and relationship issues.
I offer both face to face and telephone counselling, intended to fit best with your situation and your availability.
I believe that you should find the best therapeutic fit for you and so offer a free initial assessment session of 30 minutes to aid you in your search for the right therapist. This chance to talk before you commit yourself is so important in making the right choice.
I am an accredited member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy as well as a member of the Hampshire Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Face to Face Work
For my face to face clients please know that I do not store any information about you electronically beyond your contact number and email address. A list of current clients will be held by my Supervisor in the event of my unexpected incapacitation. Your name is not stored electronically by me, I use references in order to further protect your identity.
I am happy to use and receive text messages with a specific purpose. Text message is only used by me in order to make and confirm our appointments and will not contain any session material. I would urge you to follow this approach also and avoid any private material.
This contact information is used by me only to make and confirm appointments. No material will be included in these and again I encourage you to do the same.
Skype Work/Instant Messaging
I have worked with this method for some years and now and have seen how it can benefit.
All contact details are deleted once our work together comes to an end.
