Marion Booth MBACP BA (Hons)
If you’re suffering from stress, anxiety, depression, self esteem issues or difficulties with work or relationships, grief or bereavement or perhaps you find yourself in a repeating pattern you’d like to change, then talking to someone can help.
At Counsellingessex I offer a confidential service offering long-or short-term counselling set in the centre of Chelmsford (just off Moulsham Street) with a professionally qualified, registered counsellor. I am a BACP-registered counsellor.
My role as a professional counsellor is to offer you the time, space, warmth and compassion you need to express how you are feeling, as well as to occasionally gently challenge you to reassess the view you hold of your self and the world that may be contributing to your distress or difficulty and awareness.
I believe the individual is the only true expert on his or herself. I feel we all have the inner resources and answers within us to lead happy and fulfilling lives. However, at times it can be hard to hear this inner wisdom and guidance through the noise of modern life, anxiety and at times deep emotional pain.
As well as my private practice I also work as a counsellor in a local cancer charity.
For more information about me and how I work see below or visit my website (link above).
If you choose to come to counselling I will listen attentively to begin to understand the difficulties from your point of view. Talking through issues can help to see them more clearly. We can look at options and choices to see what is best for you.
Please do not hesitate to call or email if you would like to speak to me or find out more.
Finding the right counsellor is crucial to your experience, therefore I offer an introductory session for £25.
