Mark Browne – Integrative Psychotherapist and Counsellor

Qualifying in 1991 with a Diploma in Humanistic Counselling from The Northern Guild of Psychotherapists, I am a BACP registered Counsellor, integrating Person-centred, Gestalt and T.A. models into my practice.

Since then, I have worked as a Counsellor in Primary Health Care, schools and an Autistic Spectrum Support Unit. I am currently working as a Counsellor with MIND.


The Porchlight Practice is located at 122 Highgate, to the right of the main entrance to the Brewery Arts Centre in Kendal.  The entrance is within a yard, the blue doors of which face the main road in between the road entrance to the Brewery and the pedestrian entrance (beside the youth hostel).

There is a pay and display car park at the Brewery Arts Centre and there are usually spaces free.
