Marilyn McKenzie BSc, PGDip, MBACP, Couple’s Counsellor
My name is Marilyn McKenzie and I am a qualified practising counsellor and psychotherapist who has worked with Relate and I specialise in the following areas:
- Couples experiencing difficulty with intimacy or connection
- Recovering after an affair
- Singles who are struggling to find love or have unfulfilling sex lives
- Workplace Stress
Welcome to my page. I'm a therapist who focuses on relationships. Whether your partner had an affair, or perhaps you've realised that you no longer have a connection /intimacy, therapy can help. Maybe you're single and have been struggling to meet someone whom you can share your life with. Sometimes it's our families or friends we are struggling with. I am a Psychotherapist based near Cannon St & Angel and I'm here to help. An affair doesnt always mean the end of the relationship and it is possible to revive the intimacy with support.
Or maybe you are struggling with an addiction. It could be to drugs, sex, gambling or food. I have worked in addiction for 14 years and would like to help you achieve your goals whether it is abstinence or maintenance. The therapy is tailor made to your needs.
I am an open minded therapist so I do not shock easily. Sometimes we just need someone to listen and help us work through things. Sometimes we want more motivation. Whatever your goals are, I am here to help you get there. I'm just a click away.

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).
