Mary Brierley MBACP (Accred), MBPsS
Does life seem difficult to cope with? Are you feeling anxious? I offer a safe and confidential counselling service based in my home.
I am a Person-centred counsellor who has been awarded Accreditation with the BACP. I have experience in working with individuals struggling with many different issues, including: trauma, anxiety, lack of self esteem, also alcohol addition.
I offer counselling to adults and young people over 14 years.
I work from home, which is fully disabled friendly with wheelchair access. My working area overlooks the garden and has a view that my clients say feels very calming.
Feedback from a former Client:
"Thank you very much for all of your listening and support. I feel very strong and empowered now and have my confidence restored".
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a post graduate Diploma from Liverpool John Moores University and am a member of the British Psychological Society (BPsS). I am also an Accredited member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and I work using the BACP Code of Ethics.
I work as a counsellor with a charity that specialises in supporting survivors of rape and childhood sexual abuse. I understand how difficult it can seem to share personal aspects of life. I work with adults and young people over 13 years.
I have a current CRB check.
I have recently had training in a new kind of therapy called Brainspotting. It is a more gentle development of EMDR that supports the processing of trauma. If you wish to find out more then there is an interesting and useful video on UTube called Brainspotting.
