HELLO AND WELCOME TO MY SITE
Counselling provides a safe and calm place where you can take the time to pause, take stock and deal with whatever is troubling you. Sometimes we will have counselling for a particular problem or issue, for example bereavement, divorce, childhood or confidence issues. At other times we may feel we are not fulfilling our potential and would like to experience a period of personal development.
TRANSFORMING STRESS & ANXIETY
With knowledge and practise it is easy to transform uncomfortable and unproductive stress and anxiety INTO THE PRODUCTIVE "CHALLENGE RESPONSE". This triggers the brain and body to produce a highly beneficial, energising and motivational state, instead of the more usual fight or flight response. This enables us to reach our goals, fulfil our potential and follow our values.
I am passionate about supporting and empowering people in their lives. I feel very strongly about getting the very best quality of life that we can, whatever our circumstances.When difficult life events happen or old problems keep coming back our familiar coping strategies may not be enough, yet handled well, these difficulties can actually transform our life and be a wonderful and flourishing time.
Feedback I have received:
"Marilyn's warm, compassionate approach, combined with her good sense of humour, is inspiring and motivating."
"Your insight and knowledge are wonderful skills that helped me to reason what direction to take."
