Marilyn Percy MBACP

Welcome.  Sometimes life is difficult, we experience anxiety, low self esteem, depression, negative feelings , wondering where to turn.  Counselling can help, enabling feelings, thoughts, experiences to be shared and our voice to be heard.

As human beings we all need security and significance and when these needs are not met it affects how we think about ourselves and others.  Counselling provides an opportunity to share your thoughts, feelings and experiences, within a safe place; knowing you will be listened to and accepted in a non-judgemental way. It also gives an opportunity to explore issues with a companion who will support us on the journey.


About me

I am a professionally trained, experienced integrative counsellor, together we can explore whatever difficulties you are encountering in a place of warmth and safety in an idyllic setting.


My approach

I work as an integrative counsellor, drawing from humanistic and psychodynamic modalities. My approach is relational, as I believe that relationships are fundamental to our well-being, and that our early relationships with caregivers, affect all other relationships.

Therefore, I think that our past informs our present, and who we are today is formed by our life experiences and the choices we have made. I am particularly interested in ‘attachment’ and how this has shaped us. I seek to encourage self-awareness and autonomy, believing that every person is unique and valuable, and has within them, the ability to change.
