Maria Lyutova - MBACP Reg, MSc Counselling and Psychotherapy
St. Mark's Church
St. Mark's Place
336-338 London Road
There are times in life when we might feel down or depressed; when something traumatic happens and we feel we are unable to get through it alone; when certain problems prevent us from moving ahead in life, making us feel stuck or trapped; when we feel lost and confused; or simply when something just does not seem right… and we want to reach out for help.
I offer a safe and confidential space where together we can explore your difficulties and help you get a deeper understanding of your inner self.
In my approach I concentrate on both the past and the present: on how our past and unconscious feelings influence our current thinking and behaviour. I believe in the uniqueness of every individual, with their own life experiences that shaped them into the person they are. I also believe in the importance of creating a trusting and supportive therapeutic relationship where you can feel safe to share and explore whatever is worrying you.
