Hello and Welcome,
I am Maria, a qualified, registered and experienced down-to-earth counsellor. I offer face to face counselling for people (18 years old and over) and couples in Enfield, EN2 next to Gordon Hill Station and in close proximity to Enfield Town, Potters Bar, Cuffley and surrounding areas.
It can bring about a huge sense of relief to be able to talk to someone who can really listen and understand the world from your perspective.
We all deserve to be heard and we could all benefit from having the time and space devoted to just that. A safe, neutral place where we know we can be ourselves, free from judgement. The counselling hour is your time and the counselling room is your space for that time. The counselling relationship is like no other and serves as a bridge for people who wish to find some balance in their lives. You may be struggling but you don’t have to cope alone
Who I work with
I have had specialist training in anxiety, bereavement and couples counselling, although my practice is by no means limited to these areas. I have helped clients through many “testing” times and helped them to overcome the uncertainties and challenges they were facing. You may sense that life holds no meaning or that there is something missing? Perhaps you are exhausted from trying to make sense of things? During difficult times, it can feel as though the entire world has collapsed around you. Counselling can help you put things in perspective and give voice to your pain and heartache. I also work effectively with people who identify themselves as having problems relating to self-doubt, low self-esteem, obsessive thinking, panic attacks, perfectionism, procrastination, gender identity and who have trouble managing difficult feelings within themselves, such as anger, shame, guilt, etc.
My counselling approach is humanistic and relational. I respect and value each person as the unique individual they are. I place great emphasis on the relationship between myself and the client, as it is the relationship between us which provides the healing benefit. Working with the ‘whole person’ and not the ‘label’ is my philosophy and this lies at the heart of my approach.
Choosing the right Counsellor for you
From personal experience, I know that choosing a counsellor who is the right ‘fit’ for you is crucial, but can be tricky. In order to help you decide whether we could work together, do please feel free to give me a telephone call, text or email me so that I can answer any concerns or questions you may have. If you reach my voicemail, leave a short message or text me and I promise to return your call or text as soon as I can. My contact details are below.
