About me

I will truly listen to you, help you to get in touch with your needs and inner resources and to take action.

I am compasionate and experienced. I offer you acceptance, support, understanding and clarity.
My service is highly confidential. I am professional as I am a registered MBACP counsellor.

Life is full of challenges: relationships which don’t work, health issues, loved ones who die, work problems….or such a deep feeling of separation and loneliness for apparently no reason.
At times we all need some help and assistance to go through changes and difficulties.

I believe that my clients have the desire and the capacity to grow towards fulfilling their true potential, and that they are the experts on their own lives.

I will therefore not give you advice or offer solutions, but will work with you to help you to understand yourself more fully and to find your own inner resources.

I work with men and women.

I help women affected by menstrual symptoms and emotional difficulties to connect with the stages and natural rhythm of their cycle. Often this helps them to relieve physical pain and to reinstore emotional balance.
I also work with teenager girls. I assist them to go through their physical and emotional change and to understand the meaning of womanhood.

I am a Mindfulness instructor. Mindfulness can be integrated in the session, if you wish, as it can give you tools to cope with your issues in developping clarity and understanding.

Anna Maria

It has always been my motivation to help and understand people.
After having studied Languages – Russian, English and German – at the University in Rome (where I come from), I worked as a tourist guide and teacher.
However, my inner search and the interest for the roots of stress and illness brought me to theDSC_3929.JPG study of meditation and relaxation techniques, complementary medicine and exercises systems.

I have a regular practice in Hazlemere and Chesham (Bagnall Centre) which includes wholistic counselling, mindfulness meditation (classes courses, 121) and personal development workshops aimed to manage stress, anxiety and to appreciate the multi-facets of life.
