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.

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).
