Marion’s interest in stress management training began nearly 25 years ago whilst working as a Health Visitor member of a Primary Health Care Team at Ferndown Health Centre in Dorset.

She designed and developed a stress management programme for patients referred to her by the General Practitioners in the team. This work was recognised for its “excellence in patient care” and resulted in Marion winning a national “Nurse of the Year” award presented by BUPA and the Royal College of Nursing.

Dorset HealthCare Trust, (DHCT), supported Marion’s work and activities.  She set up and developed “training the trainers” programmes in stress management that were promoted by the Trust, thus enabling other professionals to develop their own training courses.

In June 1993, DHCT launched a Staff Support Service, co-ordinated by Marion, which she managed for six years.  This innovative service was well received by employees and continues to operate today with two counsellors providing the service.

In 1993 Marion also formed her own training company, with herself as Director and principal trainer.  This gave her the opportunity to develop a ‘Training the Trainers’ course, which was recognised and accredited by OCR, (Oxford, Cambridge and RSA Examinations), with the title of “The OCR Diploma in Stress Management,” as well as providing a range of training courses in stress management for clients.

After developing the company for more than 10 years, during which the OCR Diploma won a national training award issued by the Educational Skills Council, Marion now has a new direction for her stress management activities.
