About me

I work with anxiety, depression, stress. I help you to identify what keeps you stuck and to see new perspectives.

I will 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.

Life is full of challenges: relationships which don’t work, health issues, loved ones who die, work problems….or such a deep feeling of separation and loneliness for apparently no reason.
At times we all need some help and assistance to go through changes and difficulties.

I believe that my clients have the desire and the capacity to grow towards fulfilling their true potential and that they are the experts on their own lives.

I will therefore not give you advice or offer solutions but will work with you to help you to understand yourself more fully and to find your own inner resources.

I am a Mindfulness instructor. Mindfulness can be integrated into the session, if you wish, as it can give you tools to cope with your issues in developing clarity and understanding.

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 online and telephone counselling.

I also have a regular practice in Hazlemere which includes holistic counselling, mindfulness meditation (classes courses, 121) and personal development workshops aimed to manage stress, anxiety and to appreciate the multi-facets of life.

Member organisations


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Wheelchair user access

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.
