About me

About Me

I'm Marisa, a highly qualified, accredited and experienced therapist.


I have a degree in Psychology and a post-graduate diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy.

I am an accredited,registered member of the BACP.

Sessions with me
I offer one to one counselling, on a short or long term basis.

On average you will need 6-8 sessions.

I work with adults, children and young people.

I treat most presenting concerns;


relationship issues



abuse (recent or historic)


anger issues

work stress.

I enjoy helping people to free themselves from their problems, reach their potential and become the person they were meant to be, or used to be!!

I advocate the person-centered approach over labelling 'disorders' and prescribing medications.

I ask 'what happened to you?' not 'what's wrong with you?'.

I offer an initial consultation over the phone or face to face as I feel its important that my clients feel comfortable with myself to move forward and reach their goals.

If you would like to discuss the counselling I offer please email or call me.

Evening and weekend appointments available!

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.


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.

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.
