Marian Brindle; MBACP Snr.Accred.Counsellor/Snr Accred Supervisor of Individuals; Post Graduate Diploma in Counselling (Univ. of Herts.,1995);Primal Therapy Practioner Certificate (Brighton 1996); Post Graduate Certificate in Supervision (Univ.of Herts.,2001).


My initial counselling training at the University of Hertfordshire was a dual model approach, offering both psychodynamic and person centred perspectives.

To this I added a training in Primal therapy, completing in 1996.

In 2007 I completed an introductory training (50 hours) in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, which has informed and widened my practice yet further.

During 2010 I underwent an additional training in Lifespan Integration, an approach developed  out of trauma work, which has subsequently been found to be effective generally, particularly with regard to attachment difficulties, and am now  effectively incorporating this into my Client work.


Having been a Solicitor in private practice for 20 years, in 1992 I began my Counselling training, with placements in a GP practice and a voluntary organisation.

In 1996 I became one of the founding members of the Dunton Centre and as well as working from the Centre, I practice from a dedicated Consulting Room at my home in Shefford.

I work with adult individuals and couples, short and long term, including brief counselling as an Affiliate for several Employee Assistance Providers.I am registered with Bupa as a Provider.

I have undergone intensive personal therapy (individual and group) over many years and have a commitment to ongoing personal and professional development.

How I Work

I have been supervising individuals and groups since 2001, when I completed a Post Graduate Certificate in Supervision at the University of Hertfordshire .  I am a BACP Senior Accredited Supervisor of individuals.

As a supervisor, my goals are  twofold: the growth of the Supervisee and the protection and growth of the client. My role is to support and restore, to monitor and keep safe and to educate and challenge practitioners. I aim to provide an attentive and supportive space where the practitioner feels safe to reflect , explore and develop their skills, knowledge and understanding in order to continue to practice in a creative and committed way

I offer remote or face to face sessions. My fee is £55 per hour for individuals; Group fees will be by arrangement.
