Marie Fernandes Integrative counsellor , HA4
My aim as a therapist is to help you to live the best life you can and I understand that only you can decide what that means. Change can be difficult, challenging and sometimes seems impossible but I believe we all have the ability to achieve greater happiness. As your counsellor I can help.
I have worked across a wide range of issues, with clients aged from four to ninety, in environments including education, charities and the private sector. I always start with the person in front of me as it is your goals and progress which will be at the heart of the work we do together.
While I am not here to give you advice there may be some problems where I may be able to offer practical techniques and other suggestions to help you to manage more effectively. Otherwise during our time together I will be encouraging you to examine your feelings,thoughts and experiences to help you to discover your own way to move forward in your life.
As a counsellor I work integratively. This means that, rather than working with a single approach or theory, the therapy I offer is tailored towards what you bring: your needs and requirements. This allows me to be more focused on how best to work with you as a unique individual.
If you are ready to take the first steps towards your better life, I am ready to help you on your journey.
