Marlene Rose Shaw

50 Ashcombe Rd, Weston-super-Mare BS23 3DY, UK – 01934 642976

About 4 years ago, I was in such a desperate place in my life and I found Marlene at just the right time. I was suffering from extreme health anxiety and was becoming agoraphobic. At that time, I lived in such fear that I could not work, I could hardly even function on a day to day basis.. I was virtually paralyzed by my anxiety. I'd had a whole series of panic attacks, the first of which traumatized me so much, because I thought I was having a heart attack. Marlene helped me to make sense of the bodily sensations associated with panic attacks and helped me to rationalize my fears. I now live outside of the UK, but still sometimes have counselling sessions with Marlene via Skype when I feel that things are getting on top me me again. Marlene has a creative approach to counselling work. I can highly recommend her services.

Counselling was a subject I never would have considered doing myself until January 2013. At the time I felt like I was in a very dark place, too many sad things accumulated over the years and bottled up as well as the loss of a very special man made me feel as if I was drowning. When I was looking for a counsellor online I came across with Marlene, looking at her photo made me feel calm and I knew she is the person I had to speak to. Marlene and I had a 3 months journey working together. During that time, I had to face with all my demons but most of all my fears and insecurities. I finally let go of my anger, lernt to forgive and forget, accept and love people for who they are, how to look at life from a different perspective, and I trully got to know myself. Counselling has shown me the way to deal with diffcult challenges in life and without Marlene I am sure I would still be struggling. Marlene has a very calming energy which helped me with pouring my heart out and opening up about my issues without feeling uncomfortable. I would highly recommend Marlene to anyone and I am sure if in the future I come across with any type of difficulties I know can always turn to Marlene. I feel counselling has made me a better person, and I work on it every day to improve myself further.
