I'm Mari - Welcome to my Website



Hello, thank you for visiting my website – I am guessing that you are here because life is difficult at present.  I know how it feels to worry all the time, afraid of what others think of you, letting others walk all over you, feeling unhappy and stuck but unable to find a way out. This can be crippling, stopping you from going for that job, preventing you from attending or enjoying social occasions. I have helped lots of people and I can help you too.  I can help you to understand yourself and your motivations and help you to value yourself and stop these vicious cycles and move forward to a positive future.I’ve helped lots of people who felt like you do right now and the great news is that after working with me they felt better.  You don’t have to do this on your own and you don’t have to struggle with feeling anything less than great.  All you need to do is get in touch and we can talk about the next steps or you can take a look around my website to find out more and about me and what I can do for you.

I have always been interested in people and what makes them tick, the way they look at the world and their motivations I had wanted to train to be a counsellor for many years but I was busy with my young son and my mother was becoming more needy so it was put on the back burner. Sadly, my mother died suddenly and, by that time, my son was no longer a small child so this gave me the opportunity to study at last.  I enrolled on a BACP accredited course studying counselling and psychology which included working with clients who referred it themselves to the service – it definitely wasn’t easy but I persevered.  After qualifying, I worked for Mind, in Alcohol Treatment, GamCare (for problem gamblers and their families), GP surgeries, colleges, prisons but now I work exclusively in private practice.  I particularly enjoy helping clients overcome anxiety and depression.  In my experience, this is frequently rooted in low self esteem and low confidence which is something I have experienced.  It followed me through life, stopping me from taking advantage of opportunities, always believing I wasn’t good enough and that others were better than me – never having the confidence to believe that I could do anything I wanted.  Feeling powerless when others disrespected me and believing that I deserved it.  On day I decided – no more!   I am very proud of who I am now and how far I have come and I love helping others to do the same.  I don’t want anyone to miss out on life’s amazing opportunities because their self esteem or confidence is holding them back. you.
