Marie Jones BSc (Hons) Psychology, Registered MBACP
Hello and a very warm welcome. If you are going through a challenging time in your life, whether it is to do with work, relationships or you are experiencing a more generalised anxiety or low mood, talking things through with a counsellor can help.
I am a highly qualified and experienced counsellor with a wealth of both professional and life experience. I offer a safe, supportive space where you can talk about your experiences freely, without fear of judgement. I will help you get a clearer understanding of yourself and your situation and will support you as you explore the issues that are important to you.
I am a Humanistic integratively trained counsellor with core person-centred values. I have significant training and experience in many different and diverse issues and approaches, which all inform the way I work. I have over 25 years experience of working in the field of mental and emotional health and wellbeing. I specialise in complex trauma and currently provide counselling for a charity supporting adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse.
In my experience, it is the quality of the relationship between client and therapist that matters most, with trust at the heart of this.
