Maureen Brumby, Registered Member of BACP @ Mornview Therapeutic Services
I am a Qualified, Experienced and Professional therapist with more than two and a half thousand hours of client practice. I have professional education and experience of working with counselling clients and and counselling supervisees and I work with a broad range of issues.
Your mental health and your wellbeing matters to me enormously. Your healing process towards a more positive and healthy 'you' is something we work towards together.
Life, situations and relationships can present difficulties and challenges to us all and it can seem impossible to resolve even the smallest of issues. Talking with a skilled and experienced counsellor can help you to feel heard, achieve clarity and understanding. It can provide you with guidance and direction and help you to get to where you want to be in life.
In my practice I work with young people, adults and older people who present with a vast range of emotional and psychological problems. The therapy relationship is key to clients feeling safe and that they are working with someone whom they can place their trust in. In session we go at your pace in your time and you have space to talk openly and honestly about the things that are troubling you. Not all clients aim for an outcome or resolution but if this is required we can work towards achieving a sense of feeling settled, resolved and fulfilled.
I tailor my therapeutic appoaches and interventions according to each individual client and what they bring along to counselling. My key approaches include Person Centred, Psychodynamic, Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Inner Child work, Transactional Analysis, Schema Therapy and more.
My areas of expertise and competency are:
Post Traumatic Stress, Relationship Problems, Infidelity, Low Self Esteem, Anger, Bereavement, Anxiety, Depression, Panic Attacks, Self Harm, Rape, Sexual Assault, Childhood Sexual Abuse, Identity Problems, Trauma and Stress, Dissociation, Infidelity, Attachment Problems, Suicidal Thoughts or Intent, Loss, Bereavement, Low Mood, Bipolar and more.
I accept all my clients totally and unconditionally with warmth and genuine desire and commitment to help; I am motivated to helping you within my capacity as a professional trained and expereinced Counsellor.
My counselling service extends to:
Ellesmere Port, Chester, Wirral, Merseyside, Wales, Cheshire and other North West areas
I provide counselling from my own dedicated counselling space in Ellesmere Port or I can do home visits depending on your circumstances.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy or CBT is a scientifically tested therapy approach which focuses on creating postitive change in the here and now. It can help to create lasting alternative ways to think, feel and behave. I feel passionate about this particular therapy approach and I can work with specific issues such as anxiety, depression, panic attacks, OCD, agoraphobia, social anxiety, and many, many more issues.
Additionally, I am a Counselling Supervisor for qualified and unqualified/trainee counsellors. Supervision is an essential element of safe and ethical therapeutic practice and it is a requirement of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP).
When you find the courage to heal yourself, you will be on the right track towards a new and healthy 'you', so why not take that journey with me TODAY!

"I believe we all have a right to be heard - once that quiet inner VOICE within us feels sufficiently safe, strong and confident to speak out. And when you do, it will set you free...
