Equilibrium For Life

A Balanced Life Is A Better Life!

My name is Marion Gray and I work as a Counsellor, Life Coach, Analytical Hypnotherapist and Counselling Supervisor for both trainee and qualified Counsellors.

I founded Equilibrium For Life in 2013 and provide effective help and support for many problems which can be helped by Counselling, Life Coaching and/or Analytical Hypnotherapy and related techniques. Problems can include anxiety and panic attacks, weight control, stopping smoking, stress, depression, anger management, relationship issues, trauma, bereavement, loss and change to name but a few.

I guarantee that I will:

  • Listen to you, treating your ideas and issues seriously and treating you with dignity and respect.
  • Build up a relationship of trust with you. I promise that everything you say will remain in the strictest confidence.
  • Work with you to achieve the best possible results in the shortest possible time.  I promise not to take money from you by treating you unnecessarily.
  • Teach you how to help yourself. My aim is to make you independent of therapy, so I will give you tools and techniques to help you heal yourself and you will leave therapy with the resources to help you in your future life.
  • Take your feedback seriously- I aim to base all my treatments on evidence, so if something is not working for you I will change it.
  • As your Counsellor, Life Coach, Analytical Hypnotherapist or Supervisor, I will act like a psychological mirror in which you will be able to see yourself more clearly and understand yourself better.
  • I will help you to find unique strategies that will enable you to make the changes you want to make in your life using a variety of effective therapeutic tools and techniques. These changes will improve your overall mental wellbeing and your general health.
  • I am particularly experienced in working with young people (aged 12 and over).
