Marion Jay MBACP (Accred) Therapeutic Counsellor
I am an experienced, accredited counsellor and have worked with clients of all ages in a variety of settings including the NHS, schools, charities and the voluntary sector. My aim is not only to provide a safe place where you will feel listened to, believed and accepted, but also to empower you to understand and make sense of your feelings and emotions.
What is your story? Everyone has a story to tell and everyone’s story is unique. You are a beautiful, one-of-a-kind individual. Your voice is important. One of the functions of counselling is to allow you to tell your story and be heard by someone who will listen without judgement. Clients are often surprised how, by simply talking to someone who is trained to listen, they gain new insight and understanding of their situation.
You may be experiencing depression, stress, feelings of loneliness or anxiety. Perhaps you are struggling with guilt or shame. You may have suffered a bereavement or the loss of a relationship. Maybe you have never told anyone about your situation. Perhaps you feel that nobody cares or understands.
A particular type of therapy I offer is Dynamic Interpersonal Therapy (DIT) which is a time-limited (16-week) therapy which has been specifically developed for the treatment of Depression.
I have also undertaken specific training in the area of infant loss, including stillbirth, miscarriage and abortion. The loss of a child or the inability to conceive is often misunderstood. These feelings of not being heard can make the pain of such loss even harder to bear.
Whatever you are facing right now, finding someone to listen and understand is the first step to feeling better. The hardest part about getting help is accepting that you need it and the fact that you are reading this shows that you have already done that. Why not email me or give me a ring today?

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy.

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.
