About me

I am a qualified accredited BACP therapist working in the UK. My experience over the last 14 years has involved adult work in a doctors’ surgery, a low cost charity organisation, private practice, and in schools working with parents, staff and pupils. I work in London with multi-cultural communities, and therefore understand cultural issues and as being of European heritage myself, I can appreciate the impact of cultural diversity.

I have worked with clients with a wide range of issues including, anxiety, grief & loss, depression, self-harm, low self-esteem, relationship issues and trauma.

My way of working is integrative. The foundation of my approach is relational/person-centred. I use models such as solution-focused, psychodynamic, trauma focused
and mindfulness. Psychoeducation supports the understanding of the mind and body connection.

My therapy style is based on compassion and respect. It takes courage to ask for help. Sometimes it is unclear why we feel a certain way or react in a certain way. Our sessions
will give you time and safe place to reflect, refresh your thinking, explore yourself experiencing deeper self-awareness and regulation. The time in the sessions will help establish your goals (and after therapy too), and empower you to map out your next steps in an honest and non-judgemental therapeutic connection.

Change can be difficult and challenging. Hope you take the first step.

I look forward to meeting you and working with you.

Marita is extremely kind and considering. Talking to her calms me down.

Written on Jun 11, 2024 after therapy with Marita for 7 months on issues concerning relationship issues, and grief

My weekly sessions with Marita are extremely helpful. Even though the topics we discuss can be difficult, I always end a session feeling supported, understood and stronger for the week ahead. I'm given time and space to process events in my past and present, as well as tools to put into practice during my daily life outside of therapy. Our sessions are always on time and I never feel pressured to come to a sudden or unnatural end. I cannot recommend Marita enough, after only a few sessions I was beginning to see improvements in my mood and outlook. Her time and expertise have been , and will continue to be, an incredible help; vital in my journey to improve my mental health. Working with her would be as beneficial for anyone else looking to start improving their own mental health and daily life.

I had weekly video sessions with Marita for a few months during a stressful period in my life. Her help was extremely valuable to me; she didn't only give me tools and ideas in how to better handle stressful situations but she also helped me understand where my triggers came from and see things from other perspectives. I would strongly recommend her!

Marita has been amazing the last few months and has helped me immensely during probably the most turbulent point in my life.

Helped with unpacking and discussing some personal issues after going through relationship changes, some big personal health scares and a job change.

She helped me figure out some issues and ways to combat them to improve myself.

Always kind and understanding. Highly recommend.

Marita listens to what I have to say and I feel as though she's judging me. She has helped me to look at things from a different perspective and I find my sessions with her helpful.
