Jon-Paul MarshallIntegrative psychotherapist
I have worked for many years in the NHS and for several mental health charities. I usually work with people struggling with anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, self-criticism, shame, anger, dissociation, addiction, self-destructive tendencies, and much more. Such struggles often stem from the experience of multiple and complex life events and circumstances, including past and/or present abusive and neglectful relationships, abandonment, bereavement, bullying, trauma, racism, classism, sexism, gender expectations, study/work/financial pressures, and/or more existential challenges such as finding meaning and purpose in life.
I offer a warm, nurturing space in which, collaboratively, we can explore and make sense of the difficulties you are facing. My doctoral level training in counselling psychology (2015-2020, award due 2020) means I am skilled in working integratively, that is using several therapeutic approaches including CBT, psychodynamic, and existential models, and able to tailor my work to meet your specific needs. Primarily, my style is relational, in line with extensive research showing that the most important factor in successful therapy is the relationship between therapist and client.
I am presently seeing clients in person as well as holding online sessions via Zoom and Skype. I also have a limited number of slots available for outdoor walking therapy in natural settings. Please contact me if you would like more information, preferably by email as I am often unavailable by phone.
