Marie Maynard Morgan, Integrative Psychotherapist & Supervisor (MA, MBACP)
I work in a very different way to most therapists
'We work together to recognise triggers from your past that influence your present without judgment or self-criticism.
We explore everything from routine, exercise, health, food and sleep to unconscious negative thoughts, feelings affecting unhealthy behaviour.
We will begin to challenge any defences that may hold you back and help you to make so many positive changes.
You will feel so inspired as you take control of your life, to experience a positive and fulfilling future'
As a professional experienced Integrative Counsellor, Psychotherapist and Supervisor, I have developed a challenging and compassionate practice to help you focus on Short - Term Sessions and if required moving to Long -Term Sessions.
My focus is to help my clients to reach their full potential. Whether you are a successful actor dealing with a confidence crisis, someone battling to cope with depression, anxiety, work, relationships, home life, a student stressing about exams, experiencing too much stress, over thinking or worrying, trying to cope with anger, unhelpful behaviour or having too little happiness in your life.
Right from the very first session which is free, I will help you in several ways:
1) To explore your past and present thoughts, feelings, emotions, belief systems, patterns of behaviour, relationship issues (attachment, co-dependency) and any potential triggers. To focus on your needs, develop healthy relational boundaries and filters by setting achievable goals.
2) To empower you as my client to become your own therapist we will explore everything about your life at home, work, study, exercise, your sleep patterns, how you take care of yourself, food, supplements to support your full well-being.
To move your life forward, help you develop ways to take control, develop a much healthier life balance.
Homework in between sessions will empower and help you to focus on your own, towards becoming your very own therapist.
I have developed a depth of knowledge to support you, working with a variety of modalities including; (CBT) Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, (DBT) Dialectical Behavioural Therapy, Holistic, Psychodynamic, Analytical, Gestalt and Humanistic.
Each individual client and supervisee will embrace a depth of awareness and challenging work processes, feel empowered, gain insight into every relationship, focus on needs including physical, emotional, mental, holistic health, at work, leisure, home, especially sleep, diet, habits, addictions and patterns of behaviour.
Life may feel unbearable at times but take some comfort from knowing that it will not last forever I am here to support you through sessions for as long as you need them.
Please contact me to arrange your first session which is Free for individual, couples or Therapists in Supervision to help you to experience how it feels to work with me and to see if we work well together as a good fit.
Online Sessions are perfect to have in the comfort of your own home or private space and you will feel the benefit within your familiar surroundings. Make sure you have a good internet signal, create a safe, confidential and comfortable arrangement with a glass of water ready in good time just before our session.
Online apps are simple to use, just download your preferred online app - Skype, Zoom or VSee and add my details before the day of session to confirm you are ready to use.
Together we will embrace a depth of work and challenging processes, each individual client and therapist you will feel empowered, gain insight into every individual particular need including physical, emotional, mental, holistic health at play, work and home especially sleep and diet.
This is never an easy path, but it is achievable as we combine attentive, detailed listening with self-awareness, intense ‘HOMEWORK’ processing and to help my clients to identify and make significant empowering changes.
I will enable you to achieve positive changes and to gain the confidence and skills to cope effectively with life’s challenges as they arise, both now and in the future. I bring a wealth of experience to gently challenge and help you to work through stress, depression, anxiety, feeling stuck, overthinking or just need to talk things through to make sense and move on. I provide a confidential, safe and anonymous space where you can feel very relaxed, heard, supported and safe to express and explore whatever is on your mind. It is very easy to book a session with me to explore ways to make positive choices and changes towards living a much happier and healthier life.
I work with couples and individuals in short- or long-term sessions. I also set work in between sessions to enable you to feel much more empowered, to process changes quickly becoming far more independent of therapy by developing your own skills, techniques and strategies.
I worked for the NHS during which I undertook training and awareness in both physical and mental health settings. This enabled me to gain in-depth experience of working with the full range of psychological and psychiatric conditions out-patient settings, as well as experience of physical conditions whilst working in a variety of medical settings such as neurology, rheumatology and physical well-being.
I will support you for as long or as short as you feel you need; through anything you struggle with. If you feel unhappy, unfulfilled, not reaching your full potential, sad, depressed, stressed or anxious and feel it’s time to talk things through. I am always here for you every step of the way to explore your thoughts, feelings and emotions, or try to make sense of things.
I will help you to express and process any past or present challenging experiences and behaviour. I will help you to unpack whatever is on your mind, to gain a deeper understanding towards improving focus on your needs, to create healthy boundaries, develop self-awareness and grow in confidence towards your chosen goals.
I will support you to set your own goals, to find your voice, to feel heard, to make informed choices, bring important changes and gain a much deeper understanding of what may trigger you to feel stuck by exploring things that can hold you back.

I also bring real challenges to help you develop awareness, to make changes
As a professional Integrative Counsellor, I also Supervise Counsellors so clients and therapists can feel completely confident with my experience and professionalism to confidentially and carefully feel supported.
I am an enthusiastic researcher, inspired to expand, develop and adapt my way of working. Developing expertise helps me to provide all my clients with the very best possible counselling and supervision sessions, working to my best capacity.
I will support you to process your needs, concerns, struggles, anything and everything, to help you to make sense of things, past and present and move your life on.
Homework is simply working out of session. We can plan work to explore tasks, developing skills, practising strategies and using journals to enable you to begin to feel in control in-between sessions and experience real changes.
If you need someone to talk anything through with confidentially, I'm always here to help you. I will also support your concerns caringly, to gently explore at a deeper level, any past or present challenging experiences, thoughts, feelings, emotions or behaviour.

I will help you process what may trigger you to feel stuck by exploring things that can unconsciously hold you back.

If you are feeling at a point in your life where you just want to reach out but not sure how to,

We can work creatively using a sand tray, photographic images, chair work to process gently and move life forward.
Please do contact to arrange a session, remember sessions are very easy to arrange, I always encourage my clients to work towards becoming independent of therapy from early on rather than spending years in therapy.
My clients can work in between sessions with homework to develop stronger techniques and strategies sooner.

Psychotherapy is not about quick fixes, it's about growth, change and a willingness to make a real commitment to yourself.
"I believe that each of us holds the key to our own happiness, but sometimes we just need someone to help us open the door."
Homework is an important part of experiencing growth outside of therapy sessions; together we can process and gain a deeper understanding of thoughts and behaviours through journal keeping, making sense through dream analysis, and establishing independence through tasks and assignments.
The tools and skills I provide help clients to become their own therapist. Clients make significant healthy choices, positive changes and experience feeling assertive, feel grounded and confident as they gain respect especially from significant others.
Clients experience that they can make their own choice, changes and experience real growth, by making sense of their past, beginning to live in the present and planning a real future.
I will help you to focus on recognising your capabilities in areas such as creativity, personal growth and choice. I am reliable, consistent and always here for your session, but I’m also flexible should you need to rearrange. (More information below)

Areas of counselling I deal with
Other areas of counselling I deal with
I know the importance of helping you to make sense of things, focus on your thoughts and reactions, explore challenges and issues, set up healthy boundaries. I will make time to listen to you, to show you ways to help yourself. I will always help you to gain a deeper understanding of your life, to help you to explore your needs, to set your own goals, help you to make sense of your life, towards making positive healthy changes.
As a professional Psychotherapist, Counsellor and Supervisor, I will share my knowledge and experience with you, to encourage you to explore and grow with every aspect of your needs.
I will help you to explore and develop your own intuition, interpretation, to challenge your expectations, assumptions, your memories, dreams and any issues along the way past or present.
I work with empathy, and help you to challenge and identify your unconscious emerging defences but in a very caring, understanding and non-judgmental safe space. I will help you to see and understand yourself at such a deep level.
If you are experiencing any form of stress, physical, mental or emotional challenges, any fears, inability to cope, sudden changes, experience negative thinking, over analytical thinking, obsessional behaviours, have no concept of healthy boundaries which affect your life, and you just need to talk to someone, I am here to listen, to hold you through difficult moments and to reflect with insight and continuous support.
We can work together to explore any concerns for example if you feel or behave differently, feel confused, forgetful, overreact, panic, anxious, uncomfortable, disturbed or lack of sleep, allergies, dietary changes, physical pains, fears, gender challenges, sexuality, pressure, sudden duress which can challenge your resilience, or affect your decision making.
We can explore ways to help you to understand your feelings or behaviour, lifestyle choices, actions, sudden loneliness, emptiness, sadness, crying, hurt, no energy, over sleepy, tired, pain, aches, challenges, trouble coping, feel unhappy, crazy, mad, lost, undervalued, frightened, unable to cope, overwhelmed, lack confidence, feel insecure, unable to think clearly.
We can focus on unexplainable struggles with you, relationships, family, friends, colleagues, work, and social situations, changing events or environments.
Whatever your concerns are we can begin to work together and safely work out how you would prefer to manage your life.
I provide non-judgmental and safe support, through these times, which can make a huge difference. I will help you to make sense of what is happening for you, and why.
I can help you to develop ways to cope and begin to understand and to accept how to move forwards.
Together we will begin to move towards change and to begin to regain control of your life.
Sometimes issues can seem confusing, adding to your fears even turn into chaos. Sometimes you may just need to talk or to explore experiences, unusual and unexplainable concerns. We could talk through your experiences, feelings, emotions, beliefs, fears and issues. We can explore what you experience, what you believe, and how you experience life which you may find at times is just too overwhelming.
We can explore ways for you to gain and experience a deeper understanding of yourself, and develop a more confident self-awareness and assertiveness. We will always explore ways to move forwards.
We will work together to slowly and comfortably bring a deeper level of acceptance of yourself and your needs, to support your ability to live safely and happily, and much more relaxed.
We will explore and support your life choices, establish how you would like to make decisions towards feeling complete and aware of living and feeling alive in the present, in the 'here and now'.
You will experience growth and confidence developing and nurturing your feelings and experience towards memories, which will help you to live feeling safe and happy to be in the present.
You will gain a sense of who you are and what your needs are, to focus on managing your life with healthy boundaries and relationships, positive thinking and behaviour, with assertive skills and consistency.
You will establish a healthy, positive, deep understanding and a high level of appreciation and acceptance of yourself.
