Mary Honeyball MBACP (Accred) and Supervisor (accred)
I am an experienced psychotherapist offering to work with you through difficult and troubled times. My fourteen years experience of working with people struggling and feeling the weight of various psychological issues, enables me to offer my clients counselling that is tapered to their individual needs based on their own unique experiences.
I am committed to offer clients weekly face to face 50 minute counselling sessions, in a comfortable setting where they can begin to speak about issues that impinge on daily life. This might be due to depression, low mood, alcohol abuse, bereavement, divorcee, family trauma or acute new struggles, that includes work related issues, sexual abuse, violence.
My aim is to offer my clients an opportunity to explore underlying problems from early experiences, and through the course of open-ended work, help clients to build a better sense of themselves in relation to current daily life.
My work has also included many aspects of Autistic spectrum disorder, with clients at different levels of capability both in and out of work.
I work with clients individual and couples, from 18 to late adulthood. I am trained in Psychodynamic model for both long and short term, depending on what is felt to be more suited to the need of my clients.
I also offer Supervision to trainee counselors and fully qualified therapists across modalities.
