Counselling and Psychotherapy
Whilst Maria is endlessly fascinated by spiritual and energetic healing, she works intuitively with great sensitivity. Her psychotherapeutic approach is incredibly pragmatic. Informed by Cognitive-Behavioural (CBT) and Solution-Focused Therapies (SFT), Maria's techniques work on specific issues in practical ways to bring about real visible changes in behaviour. Maria also uses Gestalt and Mindfulness based concepts to work with clients on being present in their lives today, here and now. By being present in our bodies and being true to ourselves in the present moment, we can make a difference.

Science has clearly shown the connection between mind and body, from psychosomatic diseases to stress headaches. Our mind and body are constantly chatting to each other through hormones, emotions, nerves, neurons and senses. What we think and feel affects our bodies. Similarly, how our bodies operate has a big impact on our emotions, as anyone with chronic pain will tell you. Somatic Bodywork sessions work with talk and also massage. It is a very effective way of getting to the deep issues, and aims to release any emotional blocks to enable you to move freely in life – physically and emotionally.
