About Me

Hello, my name is Sandra Marston. My passion in life is to help you live a happier, more fulfilling life and achieve your dreams, is that what you want?

I am wondering if you want to know how I do that. I offer counselling (including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) Coaching, and workshops to help you achieve the life you want. I also use Mindfulness techniques to help you with relaxation, living less stressfully and improving general well being

Often a combination of counselling/CBT, and coaching is the way forward.
But whatever you choose you know that you and I will work together to help you achieve the changes you want to make in your life.

I wonder if you have ever thought about seeing a counsellor?

I am a qualified Counsellor and CBT Therapist. I offer a range of talking therapies including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. I believe also that Mindfulness can help us live calmer, more balanced lives.

You can have an appointment in Manchester M3 (Deansgate), Macclesfield SK10. Which is best for you?

I am also a qualified Life Coach and Personal Development Trainer. I also offer Cognitive Behavioural Coaching and NLP.

Mindfulness is a powerful and effective tool for managing your life in a more calm and effective manner. It can be as effective as medications in reducing stress, depression and anxiety. Mindfulness has a positive effect on our overall well being, often reducing blood pressure and generally helping you to deal with life's difficult situations. That sounds good, doesn't it?

Why not join me for a 2 hour taster session very soon?

Mindfulness is simply being aware of what is happening right now without wishing it were different; enjoying the pleasant without holding on when it changes (which it will); being with the unpleasant without fearing it will always be this way (which it won’t).” – James Baraz

"Problems do not go away. They must be worked through or else they remain, forever a barrier to the growth and development of the spirit."
M. Scott Peck, M.D.

Counselling offers you a safe place to get to know yourself a little bit better.

It is a place where you will not be judged, given advice or told what to do. Does that sound good?

You will be given time and space to explore your thoughts and feelings and get some balance back into your life.

If life is feeling a bit of a struggle - try to remember- it was never meant to be difficult. Counselling may help you find the perspective you need. I offer Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and a range of other counselling models in Manchester City Centre and Macclesfield

Remember, every minute spent angry is sixty seconds of happiness wasted.

Need to Boost Your Confidence & Self Esteem?


"I found my recent confidence for life workshop very beneficial for
me at this stage in my life and it left me feeling so much more positive
and ready to challenge the 'WORLD'. In fact I was rather euphoric all
evening and had a fabulous night out with my friends.I would thoroughly
recommend the workshop as it would benefit all.
Thank you so much."
Sally, Nurse

A sense of low self esteem is something that many of us experience, in fact lots of people are affected by a lack of confidence whether in work, friendships or romance, even in their family life. I believe there is a way to improve this.
Does your life need an MOT?
Would you like to have more direction in your life?

Do you want to like yourself just a bit more?

The Confidence for Life Workshop can help you achieve this and more

It’s cheaper than a designer handbag and the effects will last a lifetime!

I am committed to helping people to live the life they truly deserve.

Give yourself a treat and join me for a full day of inspirational training and self discovery.Does that sound like a good idea?

On this 1 day programme we will use visualisations, affirmations, music and creative exercises to begin to help you reconnect with your authentic, real self. You will learn how to fill your life with colour, creativity, success and joy. You will leave with a new self belief and will have taken your first step to a new exciting future. Looks good, doesn't it?

I do know how difficult it may be to attend a workshop like this when you may be feeling nervous or apprehensive about what you may experience. I promise you these workshops are kept to small numbers (usually about 10 people) in a friendly and informal atmosphere - inspiring natural light, calm environment, lets your mind fly.

Perhaps you are the person hiding at the back of the room and a small group sends you into panic and thought of being pounced on by an over enthusiastic trainer is the last thing you need! Here's my personal promise - you will not be made to feel uncomfortable and will not be asked to speak in front of the whole group, unless of course you choose to do so and then you will be supported and encouraged all the way.

These gentle, reaffirming workshops are held in North West England.

If you are a counsellor or coach, the skills you gain from this workshop can help you empower your clients and work with them on many issues.

It cost just £65 and includes a light lunch and refreshments
