Hi, my name is Anna-Maria, I am integrative therapist. I am passionate about helping young people and adults to develop and grow at their own pace. I believe each person is unique and powerful. I feel we need support at certain times in our life. Our past/present experiences sometimes stops us from living life to our full potential.

I understand processing can be overwhelming for people and those who have experienced trauma, therefore we will always go at the pace that you feel comfortable with.

My aim as a counsellor, is to create a safe and secure environment, so that you can explore your challenges/dilemmas. The purpose is to confront them within a safe and confidential surrounding. I am aware of the difficulties that come with focusing on ourselves and maintaining our personal goals, providing a safe space will help you reach and process each goal.

“For a child or an adult, it’s extremely powerful to hear someone say, “I get you. I understand. I see why you feel this way.” This kind of empathy disarms us. Say yes to the feelings, even as you say no to the behaviour.”

— Daniel J. Siegel
