I am a counsellor with 20 years' experience working with individuals and couples, from age 18 to over 50s, licensed to work in England and Wales. I have helped a wide range of clients from different cultural backgrounds with; anxiety, depression, traumatic experiences, self-esteem, confidence issues, work related stress problems, relationship issues, bereavement, grief and loss, physical trauma, domestic violence, emotive emotional abuse, loss of self and childhood issues.
My approach is person centered, humanistic with integrative style is to actively listen to you and I will not judge you, stigmatise or label you. I am warm, caring and compassionate, empathic with understanding and will support you to raise your self-esteem, to build your confidence, to empower you enabling you to take control over your life. I am respectful and purely non-judgmental. I believe that each person is an individual with their own uniqueness and experience.
I believe that sometimes in our lives we have experiences that threaten and challenge who we are. Counselling can provide the skills to manage our circumstances differently.
I look forward to hearing from you.

I am in my first month getting to know Maurcia. She’s been very patient as I unwrap my complicated life and I look forward to letting her speak soon! Lol - Her energy is very warm and calming, also we share a similar cultural and spiritual background which also helps me to be understood. I am new to therapy, however I am positively surprised at how well I am coping so far. I would recommend Maurcia as a therapist to anyone who needs help.
