A little about me
I'm Marina Broadley, a professionally qualified counsellor, in private practice. My training in Contemporary Psychodynamic Counselling began in 2002. This was an incredibly intense 4 year programme run by the University of Leicester. I think it was probably the most enlightening and transformational experience of my life.
I qualified with a distinction. A tremendous amount of heart-opening work had taken place and it needed to!
I worked as a school and college counsellor in Leicestershire for a good few years, loved every minute of it and to see the difference counselling made to those youngsters was something I could never have imagined. I then launched my first private practice, 14 years ago.
Registered with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, my private practice is located in Kirby Muxloe.
Along the way I found the miracle of mindfulness.
What a find! It helped me recover from a very difficult experience.
This lead on to my training to teach mindfulness.
Another significant transformational time. To say I love the practice is an understatement.
The great news is, I now run awesome Beginners Group Sessions. (Suspended thanks to Covid)
You can also benefit from a 1-1 mindfulness sessions if you prefer. I see women for private mindfulness sessions by video call. See Here
You and me
Its an interesting thing. Whilst qualifications matter very much, nobody asks, really. What we all seem to be more concerned about is the 'fit', how we interact together, how we relate to each other...
I come from place of thoughtful and non judgemental understanding. This is priority. This is powerful. All too often it is something that was, and perhaps still is, missing from our lives.
No matter what, I support you where you are. Support is crucial. Again it was/is often absent in our lives. I offer you a safe space so you can allow yourself to let go, even just a little. This is often a complete revelation for women, who are often in the position of supporting and caring for everyone else.
Where to start? There is so much that women are faced with. Children. Infertility. Loss of babies. Their own fractured childhoods. Partners. Sexual matters. Sexuality...
...Abortion. Transitions. Midlife issues. Body image. Society pressures. Post natal suffering. Pre natal suffering. Empty nests. Loss of loved ones. Menopause. Illness. Miscarriage. Breast cancer. Cancer. Relationship to food, Maternal issues, Loss...
Some issues are symptoms, some are natural life events, others are linked to deeper issues.
