My name is Maria and I am a registered MBACP counsellor. I hold Graduate membership with the British Psychological Society. I am member of the Counselling Psychology Division, and working towards the Doctorate in Counselling Psychology.
I provide an empathic, non-judgemental space where you can open up and feel seen and heard for who you truly are. Our therapeutic sessions will be tailored to meet your unique needs, based on a shared understanding of your concerns and problems. We will work collaboratively and I can help you live more fully, drawing from your internal resources and abilities.
As an existential- integrative therapist, I am drawing on the approaches that best suit the issues the clients bring into the therapy room. I offer both short-term and long term therapy for adults.
In existential therapy, emotional and psychological difficulties are viewed as inner conflict caused by an individual’s confrontation with the givens of existence. Rather than delve into the past, the existential approach looks at the here and now, exploring the human condition as a whole and what it means for an individual.
