Maria Curry MBACP Relationship Therapist (COUPLES, FAMILIES, INDIVIDUALS)
Thame Barns Centre
I am a qualified and experienced couples, family and individual relationship therapist working with all aspects of relationship difficulties. Is your relationship making you feel depressed and anxious? Are you in a cycle of arguments that you cannot escape? Is it difficult for you to talk about what is happening and this is making you feel depressed or anxious? Communication is often at the heart of relationship difficulties and coming to see a counsellor can often allow for a different kind of understanding which is more helpful and safe in a calm, non-judgemental environment.
As a relationship therapist I work with couples, families and individuals. My work focuses on the dynamics of the relationship in the present and for some clients it is useful to explore past relationships as this can be useful to understand the dynamics of relationships in the present in order to gain a greater understanding of how clients relate to themselves and others.
Taking the first step to contact a counsellor can feel daunting but in my experience it can change lives. I believe that counselling is a collaborative, explorative process that can be inspiring and enlightening and can have a huge impact on our relationships. My practice is based in Thame and Marlow which are easily accessible from High Wycombe, Aylesbury, Haddenham and Oxford.
I work both short term and long term and this will be led by the needs of the client.
