Marie is not taking on any new clients at this time

It may be that you're feeling worried, anxious or depressed, or that you're having to adjust to changes in your life. I can support you to explore any issues and concerns which may be troubling you or causing you distress.

My aim as a counsellor is to offer a safe and supportive relationship and to help you work through any difficult issues or events that you may currently be experiencing.

As a relationally trained counsellor and psychotherapist I can also help you to explore past relationships or life events which may affect how you are feeling in the here and now.

I am able to offer support with many issues, for example:

  • relationship difficulties
  • bereavement
  • family issues
  • work-related stress
  • anxiety
  • low mood and depression
  • health concerns

I currently work in private practice and in the voluntary sector with a specialism in bereavement and loss. I am also experienced in working with young people (16+ years) with issues such as low self esteem, anxiety, identity and family-related issues.

I am an 'integrative' therapist which means that I combine more than one theoretical approach. I'm therefore able to be flexible and responsive in offering a way of working that meets your needs.

Fundamentally however, I am person-centred in the way I work, offering you warmth, empathy and a genuinely supportive relationship.

As a registered member of the British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) I am bound by its Ethical Framework for Good Practice and this puts the wellbeing of my clients at the heart of my work. I also receive regular clinical supervision.

Please feel free to contact me either by email or phone to explore how I may be able to help.

My fees are £40 per hourly session and I offer both short and long-term work. I currently have availability at Craven Clinic, Skipton on Wednesdays.
