About me and my therapy practice

Finding the right therapist for you is hugely important...in order for you to feel that counselling is effective you will need to know that you are being truly listened to and accepted for who you are - this is the core of my work with my clients.

We can explore together where you would like to make changes - what's really going on for you underneath it all.  How can you get back to being the 'real you'?

Sometimes it may be useful to be very structured and at other times you may prefer to contemplate your options.  Depending on what you would like to change (or accept) in your life you may feel a sense of urgency or that you need to take your time to make life changes, this will all be part of our work together so that you feel that you are getting the help that you came for. 

If you are uncertain about anything you are very welcome to come for just one session, have an informal chat and see how you feel about taking things further, whether the time is right for you.

Life can be very difficult and we all need help at different times.

If you'd like more information about my work with young people, bereavement etc please take a look at my website.

Best wishes

Maria
