"Maria is all you will ever need in a therapist - she’s incredibly warm, non judgmental, intuitive and insightful - drawing on a great depth of personal and professional experience. She creates a safe space for you to explore your story - here she’s a brilliant listener, hugely empathetic and asks great questions; while bringing wisdom when its most needed. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her."

“I highly recommend Maria. She is incredibly knowledgeable, patient and a great listener. I was not sure how helpful counseling sessions would be, but I was surprised by Maria’s accurate advice and her ability to help me straighten my thoughts and put things back into perspective. She is kind and creates an open and nonjudgmental environment. Moving forwards I have found I am less easily overwhelmed and have a better understanding of myself. I could not recommend Maria more.”

"I worked with Maria over a three month period during a residential stay at Broadway Lodge Rehabilitation Centre in 2016, during a recovery from Alcohol addiction. I went to rehab a 'broken man', ready to do what was necessary to get my life back on track. Maria was one of our group therapists over this time, and someone I came to trust in a setting that was often volatile, emotional and complicated. Maria's undoubted strength is her compassion, coupled with her strength. It often baffled me how someone could feel what was happening in the room so deeply, and yet continue to guide the conversation where it needed to go. Maria used questions and silence masterfully to create an atmosphere of loving guidance. She met us all in our vulnerabilities, was deeply human, at the same time I always felt she saw the best in us and lead us towards that. I trusted her implicitly and still do two years on. I am still sober today because of the work we did in those sessions. She is an outstanding therapist."
