Marion works in Timaru on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday each week and in Fairlie fortnightly on a Wednesday.
Marion's previous experience includes a senior counsellor and management role within a community counselling service while providing supervision to trainee counsellors.
Prior to counselling Marion was actively involved in farming and farm management for over twenty years while working within medical laboratories and being a parent of four children.
With children living abroad in later years Marion has had the opportunity to travel extensively. Particular experiences of value include volunteer work within a children's special needs education facility in Wales and, after a son's high level spinal injury resulting in tetraplegia, two months observing physical trauma rehabilitation within a spinal injury rehabilitation centre in Switzerland.
