About me

Hello and welcome to the first step of your therapeutic journey. I am Marion and I am a professional qualified integrative counsellor.

**Sessions are currently being held via Zoom or telephone**

Sometimes life can throw up obstacles or challenges that we may find difficult to cope with or that can set us off track. At other times we can find ourselves dealing with long term issues that can continue to impact how we function day to day or affect our ability to see a way forward.

I work in a warm and empathic way to provide a safe and supportive therapeutic space for you to explore who you are and to help you identify your own direction. I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and work in accordance with the BACP Ethical Framework.

As an integrative therapist I work using psychodynamic and person-centred counselling techniques to treat you as an individual and to work collaboratively with you so that you can identify your own way forward. I believe that one of the most important element of counselling is building a trusting relationship with you and I will always work in a way that accepts and respects you regardless of your issues or concerns. I will always listen to you without judgement and work in a way in which you can feel empowered in your own life and any changes you may want to make. Whether you are looking for a brief, focussed approach or to work longer on deeper issues, I can provide you with a safe space to work through those concerns.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
