About me

Sometimes we don’t know where to turn as we are overwhelmed and alone but a willingness to engage can offer a different perspective and make better sense of the world. Person centred therapy is especially beneficial as well as supporting you to find your own answers it will increase your confidence as it draws on your own resources. Through looking at your thought processes you can have the opportunity to learn grow and change.

My name is Marnie and I practice Person centred therapy. Originally from a business background I am well grounded in the realities of life. I also bring my own experiences of life and loss and crucially my empathic understanding of your unique story. I can help people gain greater understanding of themselves and look at the ways their experiences may be affecting them. In a safe and confidential space the opportunity is available to explore with me why someone isn’t feeling like themselves, hoping they can enjoy the true essence of who they are. Sometimes we can make decisions that were not aware of during times of vulnerability, but these patterns don’t serve us well later on. The opportunity is there to get to the root of beliefs that are causing discomfort by making connections on how you think and behave today and  questioning if these choices are helpful to yourself, relationships  and situations.

By having someone bear witness we can better access emotions and enable ourselves to move forward.We can also benefit from being anchored so that we can steady ourselves from the effects of stress and not let these feelings disable us.

Member organisations

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.

Key details

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.
