Highly recommend. Maria was understanding, listened carefully and non judgemental. She gave me additional information resources to help me outside therapy which I found very useful. She was also very flexible with timings and never missed a session.

Maria listened with empathy and understanding to the concerns I was experiencing. She taught me how I needed to make space for these, to embrace them rather than try to ignore or dismiss them. Then she gave me tools on how to manage these concerns to be able to return to a better balance.

Explanation

Working with Maria was probably the most productive period of counselling I've had in a long time. She has an excellent way with metaphors, and making them relevant to your interests, in order to give you a totally different perspective on a situation. Working with her also enabled me to un-pick long held thought patterns by using counseling tools that were introduced to address current issues, and applying them to other periods throughout my life. It genuinely helped me understand what really makes me tick, by giving myself an outside perspective.

Explanation

I found my sessions to be very helpful. I learned many techniques to help me learn how to become less anxious which is my main issue I deal with. I was barely leaving the house at the start of our sessions and I had no self confidence. I am now spending more time with external family members and friends, have events to look forward to and methods to help to deal with the anxiety when it comes up in the moment. I still have a long way to go, especially around travel, for example public transport is something I still wouldn’t consider an option for myself, I am still fearful in the car during rush hours but I have to work on the methods and techniques I have available to myself and keep meditating and I feel I will only improve. Thanks for all your help Maria.

Explanation

I have really enjoyed working with Maria. She has left an impression of a person who cares, a person who understands and listens. She knows the CBT framework well and teaches to apply it well too. Maria has always accommodated any required changes to our sessions too. My overall feedback on my sessions with Maria is extremely positive. 
I believe the sessions have indeed helped me and I have already started to apply CBT framework approaches to my everyday life with great success. Thank you!
