Maria is simply excellent. She has been such a great help!

I have tried therapy several times in my life before being matched with Maria and this is the only time I have stuck at it. I love how she meets me where I am every week and doesnt have a very prescriptive formula for working through my past traumas. She has allowed me to build a raport with her over time so that I feel safe to go into the very dark corners of my past without leaving me feeling totally overwhelmed at the end of the session. I am very glad she is on my journey with her and would highly recommend her to others.

Maria is an excellent therapist. She really listens to my concerns and offers valuable prompts for reflection and insight. She is warm and personable and I truly feel I can talk with her about anything and still feel safe.

Maria has been such an enormous help in helping me through episodes of anxiety. She has helped me to recognise behaviours in myself and to understand myself on another level. Therapy has been such a positive experience for me and has changed the way I view myself.
I leave every session feeling lifted, reassured and confident to face my day. I cannot thank Maria enough!

Maria listens and does not pass judgment or belittle my feelings. She offers practical steps to help. She is punctual and a good match for my needs
