Marie Murphy Reg. MBACP
I am a qualified therapist with many years experience. I am trained in Person Centred Counselling, group therapy, addiction, alcoholism and eating disorders. I offer a warm, empathetic, non-judgemental space in which you can explore your reasons for seeking counselling.
I believe that through this exploration you can gain a better understanding of yourself, empowering you to make any changes you feel necessary or are ready to make. I will work alongside you in this process supporting you.
We are all impacted by our life experiences and have at times struggled. Through therapy I believe you can learn alternative coping mechanisms to deal with life's difficulties.
I appreciate that making the decision to attend counselling can be difficult in itself and takes courage to do this but ultimately the rewards can be immense.
The counselling sessions are completely confidential and I work in conjunction with the BACP Ethical Framework.
