About me

Marianne Barber  BA, DipLib, Diploma in Counselling Psychology, MBACP

I am a mature, recently qualified (2017) counsellor  and a Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), based in Chester. I currently volunteer as a bereavement counsellor at the Hospice of the Good Shepherd as well as seeing clients privately. My special interest is in working with older clients.

I have a fair amount of life experience, including retirement, bereavement and becoming a grandparent (roughly in that order!)  My background before training as a counsellor was in the corporate/academic sector and I am well-versed in the culture and constraints of working in this environment.

My counselling room for private clients is in Chester, but in circumstances where an elderly client is unable to travel I also visit residential homes, within a reasonable distance (mileage costs may apply.)
