Counselling and Psychotherapy Services



These services are usually 1 hour in duration, providing counselling in mental health disorders, disabilities, and for general wellbeing.

Many people turn to counselling and psychotherapy when they need support or are at crossroads in their lives. Counselling can provide a sense of direction, a greater ability to achieving goals and clarification. Psychotherapy is the holistic engagement that focuses on the mental, emotional, relational or spiritual health of a person. In psychotherapy the therapist and client work together to understanding conscious and unconscious aspects of ones present lived experience. Psychotherapy supports processes of change allowing a person to understand patterns of discomfort, dissatisfaction or suffering in their life. Maria works with people who wish to achieve better health and wellbeing. She has helped people with mental health disorders, disabilities individually and in group settings. Her counselling services include helping people with:

  • Interpersonal Conflict

  • Trauma

  • Grief and Loss

  • Dealing with change

  • Building resilience

  • Managing stress

  • Anger Management

  • Relationship or family problems

  • Emotional issues

  • Anxiety issues

  • Mental Health Disorders such as bipolar disorders, dissociative

  • Disabilities and autism

Some integrated techniques in which I have used are Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Hypnosis, Mindfulness, and Expressive Therapies.

Creative Therapy is based on visual arts and mindfulness therapy tailored for each individual person. These art sessions are unique and help children, youth and adults develop self awareness and therapy techniques through the use of mindfulness and art. Best suitable for people who wish to find new ways in coping and dealing with anxiety issues.

Many of these sessions are also available for parents or guardians who wish to explore mindfulness techniques with their own child/ren. Exploring secure ways to help you and your child develop calming skills together. These sessions are applied with both you and your child in the same therapy session.
