Mary  Barker

Mindfulness Practitioner in Basingstoke

An experienced Counsellor, Therapist, Trainer, Coach, Mentor and Supervisor. Working holistically and empathetically to support people facing the challenges of life big or small.

Background & Qualifications

Psychodynamically trained, but also using wide range of resources and approaches to provide bespoke support for the client.

My Specialisms

Specialisms include facing change, loss, relationship issues, workplace problems, stress management & anxiety

In addition to the personal issues in life, frequently I find there are workplace issues that need addressing. Often the stress or problems in the workplace spill over into the home OR problems at home affect situations in the workplace.

Approach to Therapy & How I Work

I work holistically, that is to say, I work with the full aspects of a person's life as one issue can spill over into another. I can work with brief focused therapy, but also long- term. Within the "presenting issue" there may be long-term recurring problems that need to be addressed and, rather than a "sticking plaster" approach, clients find that we are able to work together on these longer term problems and bring about permanent change and development that reduces that possibility of the "roundabout" problems that plague people. My organisation "The Bridge Consultancy" was set up in 1992 to help people by working on both work and "life" issues, and supporting people by dealing with realistic solutions for today's problems. I feel it is a priviledge to work with people at this meaningful level, working with individuals, couples and families. Frequently home issues impact on the workplace, and work-based problems spill over into the home and personal relationships. As well as working with people on their personal issues, I am a qualified Careers Consultant, so if there are work issues or a need to review career, prepare for appraisal or CV these issues can be addressed.
We can work together face-to-face, via Skype/Vsee or Telephone. The arrangements can be made on a flexible basis to take accouint of your work or family commitments.
