Marilyn Gaudencio FdSc MBACP (Accred.)
Hello. I am an experienced, fully qualified, integrative counsellor / psychotherapist accredited by the BACP and in addition to private practice I work in the local NHS IAPT (Improving Access to Psychological Therapies) service. I have previously worked in 2 GP surgeries as the Lead Counsellor and other Counselling Agencies within the NHS setting. This means I have had experience working short term in Primary Care with people struggling with a broad range of emotional, anxiety/stress/anger based, relationship and self-esteem related difficulties.
I have also worked in a Community Counselling Service offering longer term therapy and a Secondary School supporting young adults.
Entering therapy for the first time can be a daunting and scary process. My aim is to use the therapeutic relationship within a safe and confidential setting to explore any difficulties you may be experiencing. I will listen to you, without judgement, and we can work together to explore your difficulties and any overwhelming feelings you may have. Hopefully, you will find that therapy can be a truly rewarding, empowering and positive experience.
