About Marie Church Cognitive Behavioural Services
Trustworthy colleagues will tell you that Marie Church has a reputation for being a hugely skilled and experienced occupational health practitioner. She trained in the Princess Mary’s Royal Air Force Nursing Service (PMRAFNS) which is the nursing branch of the British Royal Air Force. Her career has spanned 40 years and recently she was awarded by the Queen’s Nurse Institute for her long service in community occupational health nursing.
A Physician colleague wrote about her experience which encompasses the full remit of occupational health practice. He explained that “she has worked in all aspects of occupational health and workplace rehabilitation in a very wide variety of employment circumstances and support to a huge range of industries and sectors. Marie and her team have proven authoritative and reliable in the provision of expert advice and she has particular strengths and expertise in the area of mental health and is one of a very rare group of practitioners who can provide a totally independent and impartial occupational/work rehabilitation opinion of high quality whilst also bringing the insight and authority that comes from being a highly effective psychotherapist and expert practitioner directly in that field”.
Marie’s work in the field of mental health, Is in particular backed up by extensive professional knowledge and credentials, as well as deep experience. She is therefore both an independent adviser in the field of occupation and counselling/ psychotherapy – and she feels that in crossing the divide between expertise in psychotherapy and occupational health practice she is in an extremely strong position to give balanced opinions which are not limited (or subject to challenge) by being simply one or the other.
With Marie’s leadership we have established a team of professionals who are particularly strong in practising and advising properly within a biopsychosocial context, and in terms of personal psychosocial influences on psychological medicine and recovery potential. Over the years Marie has developed long term relationships with occupational health nurses, physicians, technicians and administrators who practice with honesty and integrity and fully understand not just the ethics of their roles but the critical importance of confidentiality, independence and impartiality in providing opinions and advice.
Our team are hard-working, compassionate, generous, professional, dedicated and sometimes we are really just fun to know!
