About

Marcin Maciejewski

 Bilingual Therapist

I am a bilingual counsellor (English-Polish) registered with BACP. I am passionate about helping people change for the better by building upon their experiences of life.

I am currently offering face to face counselling or video call sessions via zoom at Time Counselling and Wellbeing Centre, Risca, NP11 6 BW

I have 10-year experience in providing therapeutic help to people affected by learning disabilities and sensory loss (sight and hearing). This also includes helping people with neurodiverse presentations – Asperger’s Syndrome and more pronounced forms of autism. Additional clinical training has enabled me to help people affected by eating disorders and disruptive body image.

My approach is integrative and existential. This means I use various approaches which include focusing on the present to resolve issues, exploring the past to see whether individual history has an impact as well as seeing the bigger picture which helps to gain a broader understanding. We are all dependent on other people, yet often we feel lonely. We all strive to make our lives meaningful and get depressed or anxious when it is not so. This is where I can help. Understanding you and your problems in all their complexities is the first step. This is how I endeavour to make the therapy a safe, confidential and creative place to aid you with difficulties that life has thrown your way.

I am an Associate Counsellor with PAM Wellbeing Group. Recently, I have provided counselling service to Helen Kegie Centre for Therapies in Newport and Cruse Bereavement Care (Cardiff and Vale Branch) and worked extensively in third sector (Citizens Advice Bureau)
