Hello, my name is Marlene and I am a qualified, experienced Counsellor.
Thank you for viewing my profile.
There are times in our lives when we need someone to talk to and support us to make positive changes in our lives when we are experiencing challenging times.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I have a Foundation degree in Counselling and a BA (Hons) degree in Counselling and Psychotherapy.
I work integratively, using a range of counselling models, tailored to your individual needs. I can support you with issues such as bereavement, depression, anxiety, anger, abuse, low confidence and low self esteem.
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
Areas of counselling I deal with
Sessions are undertaken in a caring, safe and non-judgemental environment. All necessary Covid-19 precautions are in place, client safety being of the utmost importance. The basic rate is £40 a session, including telephone counselling sessions, but I offer Student Counsellor reductions.
