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

Why Counselling

Hello and welcome to my website.

Life is full of challenges and problems difficult to address and that leave us sometimes feeling unable to figure out what to do.
We all feel stressed, anxious or have relationship issues at times, but you might have been feeling worse recently and need to talk to someone, in confidence and without judgment.

You may be subject to bullying, domestic violence, or any kind of physical or emotional abuse and would you like to share your worries and concerns.

Counselling can really change your life by giving you the opportunity to share your concerns with someone skilled at listening who can help you come to terms with emotions or other issues troubling your life, in a safe and supportive environment.

Counselling services with psychotherapeutic techniques

My name is Maria , a fully qualified counsellor (BA Hons) and BACP Accredited practitioner who believes that everyone in life is worth it.

I offer a safe, calm and compassionate environment, where you can talk freely without being judged or criticised. I will help you to gain an understanding of your concerns then explore and interpret the underlying causes.

Please contact me via Email, 07816517913 or via Facebook for face to face, telephone or online (via secure video link) therapy sessions

I support young people (16 years of age and over), individuals and couples, as well as group therapy together with another qualified counsellor, on a variety of issues:
  • anxiety
  • depression
  • stress
  • panic attacks
  • phobias
  • low self-esteem
  • rape or sexual abuse
  • anger and resentment management
  • manic depression
  • bullying and domestic violence
  • self-harm
  • sexual orientation
  • relationship counselling
  • couple counselling
  • affairs and betrayals
  • separation and divorce
  • trauma
  • addictions
  • bipolar disorders
  • eating disorders
  • disability
  • toxic relationships counselling
  • post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)

I provide specialist support to survivors of rape and sexual abuse during their healing process and have specific experience working with young people age 16-24

Once we have revealed, talked-through and understood these root causes, we can examine ways of dealing with the issues and moving forward. We will work together to get you through the troublesome episodes and achieve long term positive changes.

Clients' quotes: "I feel blessed to have met you", "I felt you were there for me from the first time", " you make me feel relaxed, understood and valued"

I provide counselling to clients in Surrey and North Hampshire, covering Lightwater, Ascot, Sunningdale, Camberley, Frimley, Fleet, Hartley Wintney, Hook, Yateley, Guildford and surrounding areas, at three possible locations for face to face sessions.

I also offer group therapy sessions and workshops for private individuals and organisations, together with another qualified counsellor.

I believe it is important for you to feel comfortable before you decide to begin the healing journey.

I recommend a preliminary conversation over the phone to discuss your issues and decide together the most appropriate way forward.
