Qualifications, Training and ExperienceMarcia Atkinson
MSc, BSc, PgCert., MBACP (Accred).
I believe that all of my training will enrichen your counselling experience with me. You will find my service professional, holistic and creative.
I aim to provide you with additional tools to enhance your everyday life during and especially after the counselling has ended.
I hope that my natural curiousity and ever enquiring mind will help you to find your own solutions to the questions that might have brought you to counselling in the first place.

I have a strong commitment to on-going personal and professional development and work within the BACP’s Ethical Framework.
I have attended continual professional development training in the following areas:
I receive regular clinical counselling supervision adhering to the guidelines of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy.
I also have professional indemnity insurance.
I currently offer an integrated and creative model of supervison. My fees are £40 for counselling students and £50 for qualified counselling professionals.
