About me

About me

Hello, my name is Marie. Thank you for visiting my profile. It can be a difficult decision to seek counselling and as you are reading this, you have already taken a big step forward. Seeking help is not a sign of weakness.

The corona virus is causing lots of uncertainty and you may be feeling isolated, concerned about changes in employment, going through a bereavement, to name just a few of the many things this pandemic is causing. My therapy room is now available for face to face counselling and is Covid-19 compliant. I am also continuing with online platforms which include zoom and teams as well as telephone counselling sessions to suit individual needs. All sessions are £40 for 50 minutes. If you would like to know more, please email or ring me to discuss.

I am a female counsellor offering an affordable short and long term counselling service where you will be able to explore your feelings, thoughts and behaviour, where new possibilities and strengths can be discovered, and where new decisions can be made if necessary which will enable you to live a more resourceful and satisfying life.

I have several years’ experience as a counsellor providing a safe, non-judgmental environment. The more you explore what’s troubling you, the more you can come to terms with the past, accept where you are, and move forwards with life.

Counselling can help deal with many of the issues that you may face on a daily basis. Some of these may relate to work, others to your life outside work, but they will all affect your sense of wellbeing and can be addressed through counselling.

Have you been involved in an accident and are struggling to deal with what happened and move forward? I can work with you to help you adjust and reach your goal(s).

If you are unsure if counselling is for you, feel free to contact me via email, telephone or text.

Here are some comments from clients I have worked with

I can’t thank you enough for what you have done for me. I look back at how far I’ve come since meeting you and the results are amazing!

I was anxious about my first counselling session but you immediately put me at ease and your counselling room is so calm and relaxing.

I have always been sceptical about counselling but following our sessions and how much better I feel talking things through with you, my views have completely changed. Thank you.

Being able to explore my issues in a confidential setting and not feel judged has helped me to understand myself better and I have gained useful tools. I feel empowered. Thanks.

Member organisations


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.

Accredited register membership

Accredited Register Scheme

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).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

I am currently working with several clients who have been involved in or have had an accident and counselling is really helping them to deal with the trauma and reach goals they have set.
