Marshell Barlow, Bsc integrative therapist, Dip counsellor
I have worked as a support worker for those who have drug, alcohol and mental health issues which at times has required me to work collaboratively with NHS workers. My experience also includes working in schools with primary school-aged children and providing therapy for adolescents and young adults. My specialist area is working with trauma; domestic abuse and sexual abuse as well as other issues such as anxiety and depression. My style of counselling is dynamic and multi-faceted to tailor therapy to your individual needs.
Why might counselling be an option?
- Have you ever felt as if those closest to aren't able to get you? or at times felt as if you don't know yourself?
- Do you feel as if you are unable to confidently make your own choices or that others always want to make your choices for you?
- Do you feel stuck, not knowing who to turn to?
- Does it seem as if your nearest and dearest are unable to assist you in finding solutions to your problems?
- Maybe those same people are contributing to the problem thus creating internal conflict and drama?
How is counselling beneficial?
It is a therapeutic space that can offer you the opportunity to explore the dynamics and aspects of your life privately and confidentially.

Talking to someone who is objective can eliminate judgement and biased responses. It is empowering when you begin to understand the reasons for your thoughts, feelings and behaviours from within the context of your life and personal experience. There is no right or wrong to counselling, together we will work towards making sense of your experiences.

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.
