As a graduate of the Metanoia Institute Doctorate in Psychotherapy by Prefossional Studies, Marie knows know just how challenging and rewarding the process can be.  She is a writer and practising psychotherapist with a research interest in the private lives of therapists and how this impacts their work with clients.

Before training as a therapist Marie  worked as a broadcast news journalist and producer, primarily with the BBC.  She  later joined the Corporation as a consulting psychotherapist, giving workshops on trauma and mental health to news and documentary staff who are often involved in conflict zones and areas of social deprivation.

Marie is a visiting lecturer at a variety of training institutions, including the Institute for Arts In Therapy and Education, and is very interested in the link between creativity and academic writing and passionate about the need for research to be accessible beyond the world of academia, which she believes is one of the great strengths of the DPsych course at Metanoia Institute.
