Maria luisa Urey MBACP
My name is Luisa Urey and I work as an integrative humanistic counsellor for Kings Langley Pupil Support Services and Vista. I also run a private practice in Watford in Hertfordshire working with adults and children offering play therapy, long and short term counselling support and mentoring.
Previous roles include running Leavesden Children Centre Counselling Service, were I specialised in working with vulnerable families and children.
I have a special interest in 'Person-centred therapy' (PCT) to support issues such as generalised anxiety disorder, trauma, domestic violence, relationship difficulty, anger management and play therapy.
How can my services support you?
Do you feel anxious, in need of support to manage depression, sadness or anger?
Maybe you are unable to share your feelings with your loved ones due to shame or feeling a failure?
'Talking Therapy' can offer you a safe space so your not alone...
I am here to gently help you without any pressure or judgement on my part.
If your are feeling emotionaly exhausted, stressed, struggling to cope, experiencing anxiety, depression, having relationship issues, seeking help and advice or maybe feeling overwhelmed then with the right counsellor and with someone who is empathetic and trustworthy you can take the first step to make life changes and may start to feel lIke your old self again and start being able to cope with life as I help you rebuild your resilience and self confidence.
For more information please contact me in confidence to have a informal chat or discuss your needs. I also offer a non obligation assessment.
