Maureen Othen. MBACP. Relate Registered Practitioner.
07753373472 / 07753373472
I am BACP Registered /Accredited Counsellor/Psychotherapist. I am also a Relate trained and Registered counsellor/psychotherapist. I have over eighteen years experience in working with individuals, families and couples with relationship issues.My training is integrative and has focussed on individuals, couples, family and young people. I have also worked privately with the Health Service and a domestic violence unit.
Counselling offers a confidential, safe and non-judgemental space to assist you in exploring problems with a view to finding ways for you to be more in control of your life.
We work together to look at what specific issues from the past might be causing difficulties with relationships now, looking at how your background might be affecting who you are and how these issues are contributing to your relationships.
The sessions are for 60 minutes where you will find the opportunity to speak to someone who is outside your family and friends, who will explore with you how you might bring about changes. Look at communication skills; stop arguments that just go round and round; make choices and decisions about what you want from life, relationships and begin to shape your own future.
On a more practical note my therapy room is in the community area of Christ Church at Purley. It is convenient to park since parking is free and the bus stops outside the Practice. Purley Railway station is just a short walk away.

Other areas of counselling I deal with
Emotionally focused therapy (EFT)
EFT is usually a short term (8-20 sessions), structured approach to couples therapy formulated in the 1980's and has developed alongside the science on adult attachment and bonding to expand understanding about what is happening in couple relationships and to guide therapists. In the last fifteen years, EFT is also used with families and individuals. A substantial body of research outlining the effectiveness of EFT now exists. Research studies find that 70-75% of couples move from distress to recovery and approximately 90% show significant improvements.
Individuals and couples £45.00.
Young People £35.00
Availability: Monday/Wednesday/Thursday evenings /Saturday afternoons.
I have sessions in Purley (free parking directly outside the therapy room) and in Croydon just a one minute walk from the Church Street Stop on the Tram line. Both venues are very easy to access.
