About me

Are you looking for a Counsellor in March or the surrounding area?
Do you perhaps feel stuck, isolated or misunderstood?

March Counselling is a successful practice, providing a Professional Counselling service based in March, Cambridgeshire offering a safe, supportive space to be yourself, to explore your feelings without judgement.

A therapeutic relationship offers a safe space to help you to explore and work through parts of your life that may be causing confusion/emotional distress.

I believe that people are unique individuals and as such my model of therapy is not just centred on one model of Counselling but uses an integrative humanistic approach which builds on the theories of person centred, psychodynamic and existential counselling. I also use a variety of creative interventions where appropriate.
