My aim is to provide a warm confidential and safe place in which you can talk about and explore your difficulties and worries as well as your hopes and wishes.

I have been a counsellor for some 20 years, and have been living in Swanage since May 2013. My training is as an integrative counsellor and I am an accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy.Mary Zuckerman Counsellor - Swanage - Dorset

There is no list of acceptable things to talk about in counselling, but here are just a few of the reasons people come to talk with me:

  • Relationships
  • Bereavement and losses
  • Problems at work
  • Life changes
  • Illness, physical and mental
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Self esteem
  • Age related concerns
  • Traumatic experiences, recent or in the past
  • Sexual problems
  • Addictions
  • Eating disorders

I offer long and short term counselling and am very happy working with young people, adults and elderly people.

How I work.

What I do is listen- with care, warmth and respect – to your concerns, worries, thoughts, hopes and feelings.  I believe we all need to be heard in this way – in confidence and without judgement.  And our sessions will be a conversation between us.
I hope to help you understand how you may be making choices in your life or coping with difficulties you are experiencing.
I will support you in using your own resources and abilities to make any changes you wish to make or perhaps to see your life and situation from a new perspective.

Our Initial Meeting.

In our first meeting we will talk about what has brought you to counselling and decide whether the counselling I can offer feels right for you.
It will also give you the opportunity to ask any questions or voice any concerns you may have.
We will discuss how many times and how often we will initially meet.
For example I often suggest that we meet for 4-6 sessions, once a week and that we then talk about and decide how you wish to proceed.
