Hello and welcome. My name is Claudia Florentina Marjoram, I am a Psychosynthesis Counsellor , with a PG Dip in Psychosynthesis Psychology awarded by The Institute of Psychosynthesis in affiliation with Middlesex University. I am BACP registered (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy).
I am based in Stevenage, Hertfordshire and offer face to face counselling sessions or virtually using a video platform such as Zoom or Skype.
My original career was as a Research and Development Scientist working within the Pharmaceutical industry. I increasingly found that I wanted to help people personally in a deeper and more meaningful way. I decided to follow my passion for fitness and became a fitness and nutrition coach. Within a few years I realised that in order to be able to truly support my clients I had to upskill and understand their emotional and mental worlds. I embarked on a very personal journey within myself and the human psyche during my training with the Psychosynthesis Institute where I trained as a Psychosynthesis counsellor. As I opened and explored this wondrous world of my mind and heart, I dived deep within my past, my history and untangled the threads of who I believed I was. I’ve explored, uncovered, learnt, understood my physical, emotional and mental worlds. But I had also discovered something beyond these worlds and I felt I needed to pause and inquire even deeper within my own true Self. I took 2 years sabbatical and travelled in India and South East Asia volunteering in ashrams, monasteries and orphanages.
I have always been passionate about helping, supporting and guiding people to reach their full potential and live meaningful lives, free from emotional turmoil and pain.
I work with my clients in a very integrative way. By this I mean that everything is welcomed in the therapy room, all of who you are, your experiences, your feelings, and your thoughts.
Together we will explore what is going on for you at this time and find a way back to happiness, peace, contentment and your own true Self. The starting point for my work is who and where you are right now, how you arrived at this place and who and where you could be. What limits you, what prevents you from reaching your true potential?
It is a great honour to witness and walk alongside another human being on their life journey. Counselling takes immense courage and commitment and I am offering myself as a fellow traveller, a guide to support, encourage, witness and above all hold you as you journey through the highs and lows, leading to lasting change and transformation.
Love After Love – Derrek Walcott
The time will come
when, with elation
you will greet yourself arriving
at your own door, in your own mirror
and each will smile at the other’s welcome,
and say, sit here. Eat.
You will love again the stranger who was your self.
Give wine. Give bread. Give back your heart
to itself, to the stranger who has loved you
all your life, whom you ignored
for another, who knows you by heart.
Take down the love letters from the bookshelf,
the photographs, the desperate notes,
peel your own image from the mirror.
Sit. Feast on your life.
