Welcome to Marble White Counselling. I work with Adults, Families, Young People/Children and Couples. I am on Accredited Register's for both Adults and Children/Young People. This demonstrates that the practitioner has been assessed as having the skills and competences to work professionally in these areas.

I am a qualified online counsellor and have many years experience of working online and via the telephone as a counsellor and supervisor. Counselling online or via the telephone has the benefits of accessing therapy in the comfort of your own home. There is no travel, no parking and clients have a range of different mediums to choose from, so they can decide which one is best for them.

Online counselling or supervision can be via Skype Webcam or WhatsApp Video Call. Skype Webcam and WhatsApp Video Call are also very similar to face-to-face counselling.

I appreciate it can be difficult to make the change to online mediums or the telephone, however my understanding is that once the first session has been experienced, it isn't as nerve racking as initially expected.

So, how about giving online or telephone counselling a try? There is no obligation to continue if after the first session, you feel it is not for you. Give me a call on 07716 124 328 or email to see how I can help.

I have a background in Education, Training and Adult Mental Health. In addition to working with Adults, Families, Young People, Children and Couples, I have worked in a Secondary School as a School Counsellor. I have also worked in a primary school dealing with children who have behavioural and special educational needs. Therefore, I am experienced in managing challenging behaviour and have specific expertise in Autism and Asperger's.

I hold an Enhanced DBS Certificate and I am Data Protection Registered. I am also a Qualified Supervisor of Counsellors, so I am able to offer Supervision as part of my practice. Whilst my core approach is Humanistic, I can supervise counsellors from other modalities, as I am able to translate theoretical language across models.

Other specialist areas include Relationship Difficulties, Depression, Addiction and Abuse. I embark upon monthly supervision to ensure I am offering you a professional service and attend regular trainings to keep my practice current.

I worked for several years as a Voluntary Counsellor at Off The Record. I supported both Young People, Adults and Parents and supervised support workers in managing the above issues. I helped assess candidates who were transferring into a counsellor role and delivered a workshop on Depression. I also trained new volunteers entering the service, offering information on how to deal with Relationship Difficulties, Suicidal Intentions and Abuse.

My work at Portsmouth Counselling Service with adults gave me valuable experience in working with individuals suffering from addictions. I also received training on Domestic Violence and Alcohol Counselling, so this has helped me understand the issues involved in such situations.

I have delivered training to a variety of organisations and professionals working in Mental Health. Some of this training has involved an element of Personal Development, so I am able to facilitate individual and group processes. Topics have included Depression, Attachment, Self-Harm, Relationships with Food, Depression in Young People/Children, Eating Disorders, Building a Successful Private Practice, Dealing with Difficult Behaviours, Co-dependency, Suicide and Mental Health Awareness.
