Mary-Anne Godfrey - ​Psychotherapist & Counsellor
I am a highly experienced practising psychotherapist and have worked with clients of all ages, life-stages and many nationalities. I have a lively intellect; I am well travelled, have lived in three countries and enjoyed a rich and varied life.
In my work as a therapist I help to restructure and heal those aspects of a persons self that have been damaged, arrested or traumatised so that they can experience, sometimes for the first time, feelings of joy and optimism.
The therapy I offer takes the form of an extended conversation with my client, in which I engage with him/her as a whole person not just with the problem.
I believe that depression, anxiety and anger are symptoms, not illnesses. My work in helping clients address the causes of depression and anxiety has led me to understand that they are different conditions, and neither are they the same for all sufferers.
I believe that when people behave in harmful and problematic ways towards themselves, and sometimes others, they do so as ways of coping with inner difficulties.
It is these inner issues that I aim to transform in the therapy I offer.
