About me and my therapy practice

Hello my name is Marion. I’m a qualified and experienced integrative counsellor and psychotherapist adhering to the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy Ethical Framework of Good Practice (2016).

I aim to provide a confidential non judgemental listening environment so you feel relaxed about exploring your concerns with me. I hope together we can build up  trust and understanding of the different ways to resolve your concerns with honesty and openness. Together we can manage your difficulties so that you feel very well supported as  you develop a better understanding and awareness of your behaviours. I can provide motivation to help you change .

I work from a ground floor room in my home with access to parking. I usually do counselling during the day time but happy to see you in the evening if it’s more convenient.

Wheelchair user access

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.
