A new counselling and psychotherapy practice has opened in Richmond.

The practice, called Marie Church Cognitive Behavioural Services, is being opened by Marie Church, a specialist with over 30 years’ experience in cognitive behaviour, psychotherapy and complex occupational health issues.

Marie specialises in relationships and trauma and helps people to understand and manage common emotional problems, like stress, anxiety and depression.

She is also trained as a case manager and takes legal instructions to provide Initial Needs Assessments and joint reports on chronic illness, disability and employment.

She said: “I have always been interested in people and their life stories I am curious about how they think and feel.

“When their thoughts and feelings are stressed, depressed, anxious or unhealthy I want to help.

“My role is to analyse these thoughts and behaviours and help them find healthier adapative alternatives.”

Marie trained at Goldsmith’s University, London, and was awarded an MSc in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy in 2006.

She attended training in New York under the direction of Albert Ellis, founder of Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy and gained an Associate Fellowship with the Albert Ellis Institute in 2009.
