Announcement icon My practice is exclusively online therapy over zoom
Marie Ward is not currently accepting new clients.
Counselling and Hypnotherapy to help adults and adolescents with anxiety and stomach/bowel disorders to gain long lasting control of their symptoms and improve their quality of life.
I customise wellness programs for my clients’ individual needs. I use a holistic approach which is practical, compassionate, and thorough. My one-on-one online video programs are particularly helpful for managing anxiety and improving related symptoms such as bloating, diarrhoea, pain, vomiting and constipation.
I am super passionate about helping others, having had the lived experience of managing my own anxiety and stomach/bowel issues. I love seeing my clients thrive and live their best life.
