About me and my therapy practice

My name is Maryia, and I am a master’s level qualified integrative therapist who works with children, young people, and adults.

From time to time, we face a range of difficulties throughout our life which can be challenging and tough for us. Counselling is a space where I provide a safe-empathetic space for individuals to feel heard, and explore their thoughts and feelings in a space without the fear of judgment. Therefore, the space provided within the session will help you share and identify a mixture of feelings, emotions, and thoughts. As your therapist I will not tell you what to do but will work alongside and support you in your awareness of it- remember this is your journey, I am here to support you and walk alongside you. I use a variety of therapeutic techniques to suit your needs as every individual is different and unique. I work from an integrative approach as I believe one approach does not suit everyone. Therefore, I use different therapeutic techniques and approaches to suit your needs.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. I offer concessionary rates to students and individuals who receive benefits. 

Practice description

I work using an integrative approach where I use a range of different therapeutic needs to suit your needs. I provide you with a safe confidential space, I am understanding, patient, caring, and willing to work with clients to build a trusting therapeutic relationship. Within this therapeutic relationship I will help clients talk about struggles they are facing and any difficulties they are experiencing in a safe way the client feels comfortable. 

When doing this I will offer you a safe confidential space where you can openly speak about any difficulties you are encountering. I will ensure that you feel valued, heard, and safe when speaking in our therapy sessions. This will allow you to feel comfortable when expressing your concerns and problems, in a safe comfortable setting, and will allow us to build a safe therapeutic relationship. 

My first session

I understand speaking to someone you do not know can be difficult, but I as your therapist will always ensure that you are feeling comfortable and ready. To do this I will offer you a 15 minute phone call or online consultation for you to discuss your therapy needs. We can also spend this time to talk about any questions you may have. We will also do an initial assessment which can help us understand what areas you would like support in. When doing this it will allow us to discuss your therapeutic needs and the type of therapy you require.
