A professional and supportive therapist…..

Marlene is a professional and supportive therapist who has helped me understand how to manage my life priorities, deal with my problems and I had tried a number of 'therapies' over a period of 20 years and it was not until I met with Marlene and read her book 'Out of Fear and Into Love' that I started to live happily again. Her gentle and professional approach assured me she was listening and understood what I could do to get my life back on track. Marlene is an excellent therapist and I would highly recommend her to anyone who has any problem from a simple 'I don't know what is the best option' life decision to more complex problems such as depression and anxiety. Thank you Marlene

Marléne really helped me…..

When I first went to see Marléne, I was in a place of mental isolation, suffering from severe panic attacks and great anxiety, which at its worst changed me from a very open, life-loving person, into an agoraphobic, who hardly ever ventured out. Marléne really helped me through that difficult, and harrowing time. With her help, and some positive life changes, I am now back to my life-loving self, with a few cognitive tools from the sessions with Marlene, that help keep my thoughts and emotions in check.

​​ Therapies


The world of therapy has radically changed in recent years. Modern Energy Psychologies combined with conventional Talk Therapies means that we can go beyond the results that traditional counselling has to offer


​Techniques such as
Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) and Matrix Reimprinting, (collectively known as Energy Psychology) are fast-acting methods which can access the subconscious mind to help you let go of self-limiting beliefs that have been keeping you stuck.

By combining these leading edge techniques with traditional therapies such as
Talk Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (C.B.T) and Transactional Analysis (T.A) I can help you quickly identify the underlying limiting beliefs that are causing your problems, let them go and create new more helpful ways of approaching life.
