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.

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.

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).
