About me

Hi, I am Maria and I am a professionally qualified and experienced Integrative Counsellor, Hypnotherapist and Life coach.
Since 2010, I’ve helped my clients break through the obstacles that seem to be holding them back in life. They have all agreed that life is too short to be unhappy,  unsure, or unfulfilled.
I offer a safe space to explore difficulties as well as hopes and dreams. Using a collaborative and non-judgemental approach,  I offer both long and short term therapy, and enjoy working with a diverse range of people.
I use a combination of approaches that bring together different elements of psychological therapies. I believe there is no single approach that can treat each client in all situations.
My focus is always to help individuals with whatever problems they may present, and that they feel they actually want help with. I can help you to achieve your goals through coaching, hypnotherapy, psychotherapy and counselling.
I enjoy helping people improve their relationship with themselves as they go through their journey of discovery, working with specific issues relating to their past desired future.
I have over 10 years experience working with health related issues, 5 years in a hospital setting - including health anxiety, living with uncertainty, adjustment to and living with cancer, chronic and non curative illnesses. This experience has enabled me to work effectively with people who are suffering with long Covid symptoms.

My work is as an adjustment to you and your needs. A collaborative process between us. I achieve this by using my experience of helping people and by providing a safe, confidential, caring, comfortable, understanding and non-judgemental space.  I listen to you, and design a personalised therapy plan customised specifically for you and your own individual needs.
So whether you suffer from anxiety, need help with your alcohol intake, fears, weight, addictions, trauma, gambling, stress, accepting and managing a medical diagnosis within your mindset, life direction, relationship issues or other.  Book an appointment with me and take back control of your mindset and your life.
In addition to 1-on-1 consultations and group sessions, I regularly host workshops and seminars for people who are interested in development.

Maria is always supportive, kind and compassionate with me. I was able to trust her with the most personal aspects of my life and learned from her advice. I have benefitted immensely in my own happiness and equanimity.

Maria has a genuinely kind and comforting energy. She listens and has no sign of judgement in any way. I may have only had 3 sessions with her, but I feel confident that she will help me find a way to deal and cope with my mental health and discover the root of my problems. I highly recommend her for grief, ADHD and anxiety issues.

Maria gets results from the moment you start speaking with her. She's a good listener and seems to know exactly which direction to send you in. I was a skeptic to begin with, but I've found working with her is really beneficial and I'm learning life-skills that'll serve me for years.

Maria is really nice. She makes me feel comfortable about expressing different thoughts and provides me with alternative scenarios that are enlightening for my situation. Thanks Maria

Maria is an empathetic and compassionate therapist who approaches our sessions with a gentle demeanour and a genuine desire to help. She listens carefully and encourages me to reflect on behaviours of mine that are self-harming. She has come up with tangible solutions or ideas to improve various aspects of my life, including work, parenting and friendships and family relations. She has a positive and bright energy that has been a valuable source of support in this challenging period. Thank you, sweet Maria!

I have been receiving therapy session from Maria for a few months now, and I couldn’t recommend her enough. Maria is a wonderful listener, and always addresses every concern with such care and kindness. I felt very comfortable with Maria from our very first session as she is really friendly and warm.
