I am Maria, a qualified and experienced down-to-earth counsellor. I offer face to face counselling for couples and individuals in Enfield,EN2, Gordon Hill area, and in close proximity to Enfield Town, Potters Bar, Cuffley and surrounding areas. We can also meet via Skype.
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 could benefit from having the time and space devoted to just that. The counselling hour is your time and the counselling room is your space for that time.
My specialisms are anxiety, bereavement (including loss in its many forms) and relationship counselling, although my practice is by no means limited to these areas. I see people who want to:-
- Feel more at peace with themselves and others
- Stop repetitive patterns of behaviour
- Express their feelings and emotions in a non-reactive way
- Manage their anxiety, stress and panic attacks
- Understand themselves more fully
- Communicate effectively
- Stop obsessive thinking
- Make better choices
You may be struggling but you don’t have to cope alone. Counselling can provide you with a safe, neutral and confidential place where you can be yourself, free from judgement. Together, we can explore the possible causes and triggers of your anxiety or distress. I will work with you to develop effective coping strategies. In the process, you will discover the tools that can help you to manage stressful situations in the future.
The idea of talking to a complete stranger about your problems may feel strange. Perhaps you fear not being understood or misinterpreted and that this will add to your stress? Having been in the client chair, I know what it’s like to be the client. I aim to show my clients the same attentiveness, presence and compassion I was lucky enough to receive when I sought my own personal therapy.
You don’t have to be in crisis to seek counselling. If you are not feeling at peace with your life, or you just sense that having someone to talk to could bring about real change in your life, then now is the right time to talk to me.
