Maria Russo - BA (Hons) Humanistic Counsellor in Guildford, Ascot, Sunningdale , Lightwater, Camberley, Frimley, Fleet, Hartley Wintney, Yateley, Hook and surrounding areas

Welcome to my website

Life can be challenging at times and it can be difficult to cope with problems, while feeling unable to figure out what to do.

  • Do you feel depressed, anxious or stressed?
  • Does it feel like everything is getting on top of you, do you feel anger and don't know what to do?
  • Is your everyday life affected by a trauma of some kind?
  • Do you have issues in the relationship at work, with your partner or within your family?
  • Are you subject to abuse, any kind of physical or emotional violence?
  • Would you like to talk to someone about your worries and concerns?

Why Counselling

Counselling offers you a safe, private and confidential environment where you can talk freely about your concerns and worries, without being judged or criticised.

Through a joint psychotherapeutic process, we will explore feelings and thoughts, analyse your past experiences and work together to find solutions for the challenges you face.

My name is Maria and I am a Transactional Analysis therapist who believes that everyone in life is worth it and has the capabilities to find options and achieve change.

I am a fully qualified counsellor and registered practitioner, working in Surrey and North Hampshire, covering Lightwater, Ascot, Sunningdale, Camberley, Frimley, Fleet, Hartley Wintney, Hook, Yateley, Guildford and surrounding areas.

My aim is to help you regain control over your life and reach your best potential
