Rowanne Mackie

Member Status: Accredited

Member No: NCS16-02902

Location: Billingshurst

Prior to training as a counsellor and therapist, I worked in demanding, high-stress environments and understand work-related stress and pressures of chasing work-life balance.

A series of major, personal life-changing events led to conclude that I wanted to train professionally in approaches I found personally beneficial. And that I wanted to draw on my personal and professional experience to work dynamically with people who wish to make positive life changes.

With my experience, comes a level of humanity and understanding that cannot be taught by textbooks alone.

I practice online and face to face in Godalming, Surrey and Billingshurst, West Sussex.

Please see my website for more details.
