Carmen Marshall Counselling

Offering Counselling in Dunstable

and surrounding areas

 

There are many reasons why people make the decision to have counselling. Whether it be to get back on track or because you have had a distressing experience which is having a negative effect on you, maybe you feel lost or stuck, or maybe you would like to talk about something that is playing on your mind in a confidential environment with someone who is not involved in your everyday life.

I approach the therapeutic journey with each of my clients from a place of compassion and belief in their ability to reconnect with what is important to them.

In my role as an Humanistic Integrative Practitioner I create for each of my clients:

Counselling Dunstable

A safe space away from your everyday life.

Counselling Service in Dunstable

An environment that provides safety, and non-judgemental acceptance.

My Therapeutic Approach

The way I work as a therapist has a lot to do with my personal journey as well as my professional journey. I have learnt a great deal of knowledge through my own challenges, overcoming, managing and working through them, in and outside of my personal therapy. I understand how it feels to be in therapy and I believe we learn and grow mainly from real life experiences.

I am passionate about the work I do, I have true compassion and belief in all my Clients. I believe we all have the inner resources and answers within us to lead fulfilling lives, however we can feel lost and stuck and it can be hard to hear this inner wisdom.

My role is to provide you with a safe space away from everyday life, space and time just for you, Here you can move forward in the direction that’s right for you. This is all done at your pace, I am here to guide you, not to advise or instruct.

As an Humanistic integrative practitioner I incorporate various counselling approaches or schools of thought in order to find a way of working that suits your needs best.

Arranging a Session

If we decide to arrange an introductory session, this will give us the opportunity to see how we work together along with discussing any further questions and to arrange further sessions if we are going to continue. I believe we need to feel right about working together since our relationship will be essential to the success of the work we do.
