About me

My name is Marina and I am a fully qualified, highly skilled counsellor and registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I am passionate about my work and have an extensive professional background in both the school and private sectors and provide comprehensive therapeutic support to children, young people, adults, couples and families, and employees.
This dedication has driven me to achieve an MSc degree in Counselling and Psychotherapy, a
Postgraduate Diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy Studies, and a BSc (Hons] degree in
Psychology and Counselling. In 2016, I launched my own private practice ‘OK Talk Counselling’ to provide a safe, secure and confidential setting where individuals can feel empowered to share their problems, issues or experiences with someone who is fully trained to help them.
I use best practice, evidence-based therapeutic approaches to facilitate practical and lasting
change for individuals to help them improve their relationships, their outlook on life and
their overall wellbeing.
People seek counselling support for a range of reasons and whilst the issues are often
common, such as anxiety, depression, or stress, I do not apply a ‘one size fits all’ approach
nor is it about ‘fixing’ the individual. Instead, it’s about going on a journey together so, in
time, that individual feels better able and equipped to make decisions themselves and
improve their life. By dealing with emotional barriers and personal concerns in an open, honest and collaborative way, I firmly believe genuine positive change can occur.
I know how busy or difficult life can be and it’s not always possible for individuals to book
regular face-to-face counselling sessions. That is why I offer the choice of private counselling
sessions in person, over the telephone or via Skype.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
