Marina Anderson is an integrative psychotherapist, person-centred creative art counsellor, an equine-assisted learning counsellor/facilitator and artist. She combines these skill sets to create a very unique and creative psycho-therapeutic experience. Marina also has experience of working with groups from self-development with horses to addiction recovery aftercare programs.
Since 2017 Marina has worked with a variety of clients dealing with circumstances that are unique to their life experiences of anxiety, sadness, uncertainty, grief, loss, abandonment, addiction, trauma, co dependency, coercion, sexual identity, spiritual separateness…
Meeting with new clients and deepening the therapeutic relationship is an enriching part of this work. Seeing people reclaim their lives, developing a more authentic sense of themselves and learning to respond to what they have experienced in the past and their present-day needs are the essence of why Marina is motivated to be a therapist.
"I believe the healing power of relationship, connection, acceptance and unconditional positive regard helps people to work through what they are unsure about (pre-contemplation) and gain a greater understanding of their life experiences (contemplation) past and present."
During the counselling sessions, Marina collaboratively and creatively works with her clients, helping them explore their life challenges, strengths, limitations, and personal resources. Clients gain a new sense of themselves, connecting with what is important to them, achieving tasks, setting goals, and creating opportunities to meet their life challenges differently, supported.
