Marc Dalal B.A. Dip Counsellor MBACP
There is no one who does not experience an inner, if hidden, anxiety about the freedom to be otherwise than one is. However this anxiety expresses itself I offer my help in relieving these unwanted feelings and associated behaviour.
My work as a counsellor in Barnes offers a service to adults and children in a space which is non-judgmental, confidential and safe. You can expect me to hear you, understand you and reassure you. I have five years of experience counselling a wide range of issues including
• Emotional issues (anxiety, depression & self-worth)
• Lack of purpose
• Relationship difficulties
• Recent trauma
• Sexual Abuse
• Young people’s issues
• Work concerns
• Various unspecified issues
My counselling approach employs a wide range of techniques, including Psychodynamic, Humanistic, CBT, Mindfulness and Creative Art Therapy. The approach is sometimes referred to as “Integrative” and is tailored to meet the individual needs of each unique individual.
We may explore past and present thoughts and feelings, identify patterns of behavior, consider self-defeating behavior or simply begin talking about whatever is on your mind.
Before I meet with someone there is usually an email exchange or phone call before meeting.
You are welcome to contact me informally before formal counselling begins.
My practice is in the Borough of Richmond, one of the greenest London boroughs. The districts within the Borough of Richmond include Barnes, Twickenham, Kew and Mortlake. I am within easy distance of Roehampton, Putney.
