about me

 I am a mature and experienced counsellor working with people of all ages, to help them towards finding a more fulfilling way of life.  My style of working is based on the building up of a trusting and open relationship between the client and the therapist, which is the basis for all our therapeutic work.  I believe that what we experienced as children, whether good or bad, affects us throughout our lives; and by being given the time and space to 'tell our story', we develop more insight into why we are the way we are. 

These insights then guide us towards finding ways to change what we want to change, and value those qualities in ourselves that are beneficial.

In Crisis?

I do not work online with persons who are in a state of crisis.  If you are feeling suicidal or in danger of severely harming yourself, I would ask that you contact organisations that are specially set up to deal with levels of extreme distress, such as the following:

www.samaritans.org  or www.befrienders.org which is the international equivalent of the Samaritans in the U.K.

If a crisis arises while we are working together, I would support you to get in touch with one of the above organisations, and when the immediate crisis was over, I would be happy to re-engage with you to carry on our work.


 Contact.

mbcounselling@me.com  or 07814 824540


There will be no charge for emails initiating contact and arranging the first online meeting, which will include setting up a contract.  And my first 'counselling' response to you is free.
