Matina is very good at giving me ways that reframe my thinking to help get me out of my anxiety funks. Additionally she is very compassionate. Sometimes, therapists can be quite dry l and that makes it difficult to be open about the issues we deal with. I find that her compassionate manner makes me feel ok to be open and honest and not feel foolish for feeling the way I do. Overall I am feeling more equipped at handling anxieties
I came to Matina with a host of issues, work being one of them. Prior to seeing Matina I'd seen two therapists, both of whom I felt I genuinely never clicked with. Matina has been absolutely pivotal in my emotional and mental transformation. She is just so empathetic and has that ability to be your friend and therapist at the same time. I wouldn't be where I am without her. She provided me with the tools and advice to help get me out of the rut I'd never thought I'd see myself escaping from.
I really value Matina's flexible and pragmatic therapy style. I feel like she really understands my needs and reacts to them. She is clearly extremely knowledgeable, I really value this
Matina is kind, thoughtful and insightful. I am so grateful to have found her especially since it can be so hard to find a therapist you click with.
Matina has helped me so much in gaining my confidence back and start to look and think about situations differently. I am growing in confidence daily. I have found Marina very understanding, non judgemental and has a very good way of making you see things more clearly and rationale. I have used a lot of what we have spoken about in our sessions and put into my daily routine.
Marina is a fantastic therapist. I find myself leaving our sessions so full of positivity and hope. She has a very calm and engaged manner. Her suggestions show she has listened to everyword I have said, so I feel listened to. The environment she creates is safe and comfortable and I always look forward to our sessions.
Excellent work, I feel very confortable with her and she is helping me a lot to build up my confidence.
I have been seeing Matina for three years and can't recommend highly enough. She has a considered and caring approach, helping to make seemingly insurmountable hurdles easy to overcome. Grateful for her help in getting me to where I am today.
I would without a doubt recommend Dr Matina Sotrilli. Matina has been professional, kind and understanding throughout all my sessions with her. I immediately felt comfortable talking with her, and have found her approach welcoming and insightful
Words can not express the positive impact Dr Sotrilli has had on my life, I will forever be indebted to her, for the help, compassion and support I have received. I can not recommend Dr Sotrilli highly enough. Toby
