Marie Varney  

BA (Hons), PG Diploma, MBACP



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.
