Maria | Person-centred counsellor

Online and telephone counselling

Hello, my name is Maria. I am a qualified counsellor offering online and telephone counselling. I offer a warm, empathic, safe, non-judgemental space for you to explore anything you wish.

We can all feel anxious, stressed and out of control at times, I am here to help you explore your world, in your own way.

I feel we are all unique and therefore the counselling relationship should be unique too. I will bring my full being into our space and aim to work with you on a relational, deep level.

My background is working within guidance and mental health support services. I believe my extensive client work in previous roles provides a greater depth of understanding for the issues we all face. Previous services I have worked for include; women's refuge, The Foyer, Citizens Advice, Connexions. 

As well as my private practice, I also work as a sessional counsellor for a local CIC. I hold an enhanced DBS check. 

I will create a safe, open space to help you feel comfortable, heard and accepted.

I am more than happy to answer any questions you may have about me - please get in touch.

I offer online counselling via zoom. (Instructions are offered at contracting stage). 

I feel being able to offer online and telephone counselling allows me to be more inclusive and I enjoy being able to offer three different modes of counselling.
