Maria Fragkou, Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist, BSc, BSc, PgCert, PgDip
Wokingham Therapy Clinic
49 Denmark Street
I am a Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist, accredited with the BABCP, and a clinical supervisor. I work with a variety of psychological difficulties including depression, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, OCD, social anxiety, generalised anxiety, health anxiety, panic disorder, specific phobias, and interpersonal difficulties.
Following extensive experience working with adults and young people with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD), I have developed a specialist interest as a therapist in Autism Spectrum Disorder, Asperger’s syndrome, Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). I use adapted cognitive and behavioural interventions for depression and anxiety to meet the specific individual needs of clients with such conditions. I take a strengths-focused approach working with the client to identify both strengths and challenges, and make best use of the person's positive qualities to increase resilience and overcome existing difficulties. I have a leading role in the NHS for adapting psychological therapy for ASD and ADHD, and my role also involves supervision and training.
I have also developed an interest in perinatal depression and anxiety, and I run parenting groups, focusing on developing positive family relationships.
I am based in Wokingham, Berkshire, at Wokingham Therapy Clinic, and in Basingstoke, Hampshire, at Worting House.
