A confidential space to explore the thoughts, feelings and challenges in your life
Welcome, and thank you for visiting my website. My name is Marie-Line Charler and I am a counsellor providing both short- and long-term therapy to adult individuals in person in SE1 2TH, London Bridge. I also offer online therapy.
Life brings many challenges, and it is understandable that at times we might look for support in facing them. As a counsellor my role is to provide space and guidance to help you on your journey of self-discovery; to enable you to examine your life and make new, meaningful choices within it.
I offer a chance to reflect on the difficulties or problems you are experiencing in a safe and confidential environment, with someone from outside your day-to-day life. Together we can explore your situation in a way that leads to fresh perspectives - and perhaps a new understanding of yourself. Counselling isn’t about giving you solutions or advice, but empowering you to make your own changes.
I work with people from all walks of life and backgrounds, coming to me with a diverse range of problems. As a fully-qualified counsellor I am a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy, and abide by their code of ethics.
Counselling is provided in either English or French.
Counselling takes place in a safe space, where you can meet with someone who will listen with sensitivity and empathy - and without judgement. In the therapy space thoughts and feelings can be expressed freely and in confidence.
Trouble with a relationship; anxiety or panic attacks; mood swings or depression - many people face difficulties in their everyday lives that can be hard to get on top of. Counselling gives us a set of tools we can use to help gain a better understanding of what’s causing these problems - and how you can move towards managing or resolving them.
Working together I can help you gain greater insight into the difficulties you are facing, help you understand why you act or react to them the way you do, and see how you can start to make better, heathier choices moving forward.
People come to me for help a wide range of issues. Here are a few of the more common difficulties that can be supported through counselling:
Problems with confidence or self-esteem
Grief, loss or bereavement
Work or retirement
Family or student's life
“Following a bereavement therapy, I had counselling sessions with Marie-Line to continue my healing process. She is an excellent listener, able to reformulate your own speed and thoughts, which really helped me to understand who I am as a person and therefore find my own solutions. Thanks to her tips, I found ways to deal with overwhelming emotions and uncomfortable situations. I recommend her to anyone looking for a person-centred approach."
“Marie-Line provided a safe space for therapy, asking high quality questions that helped me figure out what I needed. I appreciate Marie-Line’s gentle approach and bilingualism as a counsellor. It was impactful and a rewarding experience”
“Sessions were welcoming and eye-opening, and filled with good questions, understanding and patience as we talked and worked through things together. Marie-Line assisted me with understanding my experiences and emotions in ways that have helped me better understand myself, and I feel like I have more tools to go forward in life to live a happier one. I am truly grateful to Marie-Line for these last few months and would highly recommend her as a therapist. Thank you again, Marie-Line”
K.H, face-to-face and online
I work from private offices located in London Bridge, and see clients from Southwark, Lambeth or on their commute further afield. I will provide location details when we arrange our counselling sessions.
In addition to providing face-to-face therapy, I also offer online sessions via Zoom or Skype. Contact me to find out more about how online therapy works.
An initial session lasts 50 minutes and cost £75.
Counselling sessions for individuals also last 50 minutes, usually taking place on a weekly basis, and cost £90 per session.
Note that if you want to cancel an appointment I require 3 working days' notice; otherwise you will still need to pay for any sessions missed. I accept payment in cash or by bank transfer.
