About Mary Wallace Counselling

Counselling is a place where you can talk privately about your life and consider how you would like to move forward. I am a fully qualified counsellor, registered and accredited with the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy and committed to offering you a non-judgemental relationship in which you can feel safe exploring your concerns.

Some people use counselling to:

– express feelings or thoughts that they don’t feel able to express anywhere else
– work out how they feel and what they think about important events or situations in their life
– explore a problem and perhaps the different options they have [or which a counsellor might suggest] for dealing with that problem
– take time out from difficult situations or feelings
– learn better ways for coping with difficult emotions or situations

It is your space and it is up to you how you’d like to use it [although I will help you to decide if you want]. For many people, just being able to talk and be listened to is a huge relief. Occasionally, people can find counselling hard or upsetting for a time as they work through difficult emotions, but often they find that going through this helps them in the long-term. I will do all I can to make counselling safe and helpful for you.

I have helped adults and teenagers struggling with a wide range of difficulties to find their strengths and move forward in their lives. As well as my private practice, I have worked with a charity to provide counselling to adults and in a FE college with young adults. I have also provided consultation to organisations working with people to support them in developing their well-being provision. I currently work with a national charity offering therapeutic support to children, young people and their carers.
My counselling training integrates insights and techniques from a range of therapies, including psychodynamic and attachment theories, CBT strategies, concepts of narrative and life-stories and aspects of Transactional Analysis. My qualifications include:
