About me

I work with anxiety, depression, stress and more. I help you to identify what keeps you stuck, to see new perspectives and to make sense of your life. I truly listen to you, help you to get in touch with your needs and resources and to take action.
I am compassionate and experienced. I offer you acceptance, support, understanding and clarity.
My service is highly confidential. I am a registered MBACP counsellor and Imago couple therapist.
I am also a Mindfulness teacher and if appropriate I integrate Mindfulness in the session.

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 in the roots of stress and illness brought me to the study of meditation and relaxation techniques, complementary medicine and exercises systems.

Currently, I am providing face to face, online and telephone counselling. My regular practice is in Hazlemere which includes holistic counselling, clinical supervision, mindfulness and personal development workshops .

Areas I deal with:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Stress
  • Relationships
  • Life crisis

  • Confusion

Member organisations

BACP
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Accredited register membership

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
