Marie Milnes CPCAB Dip. Coun, MA PCECP, MBACP
IN LIGHT OF THIS DIFFICULT TIME, THE CURRENT CRISIS WITH REGARDS TO THE CORONAVIRUS LOCKDOWN, I WILL BE UNDERTAKING ONLINE THERAPY, TO SUPPORT THOSE WHO WISH TO CONTINUE THERAPY OR FOR THOSE WISHING TO START THERAPY ONLINE, OR BY TELEPHONE, AT THIS TIME.
I understand that making the decision to undertake counselling for the first time, or maybe again, can be very difficult. This is where I may be able to help, in order to make that easier for you. In taking that first step together you are not on your own.
As a fully qualified, person centred counsellor and psychotherapist, offering one-to-one counselling and support, working in Nottinghamshire, I can provide you with a safe environment where you will not be judged or advised.
Maybe you are suffering in an abusive relationship or have feelings of anxiety, low self-esteem, lack of confidence, or maybe just fed up of feeling the way you do but don’t know why. Whatever the issues we can explore them together, offering you peace of mind that you will not have to go through this alone.
As your counsellor and psychotherapist I will listen to you, be understanding and sensitive as to what you may be experiencing, as we explore these issues together. This will enable you to come to a new awareness and understanding of what you are going through and why, allowing change and growth within you and the ability to fulfil your potential. This will in turn give you empowerment to cope with major and every day issues, and in turn make life a little easier for you.
Alongside adult counselling I also offer a childrens and young people counselling service, both face-to-face and online. I work with children and young people of all ages, with varying issues such as self-harm and suicide, sexual abuse, family relationships, anger, bullying, low self-esteem and lack of confidence. As a counsellor working with your child I will use various materials such as arts, sand and water. This will enable your child to express their feelings and develop an awareness of their emotions through art and play therapy. This helps with behaviour and emotional difficulties and allows the breakdown of emotional, behavioural and learning barriers, thus enabling your child to become more confident, building up their self-esteem, giving them opportunity to fulfil their potential and become all they can be.

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.

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).
