Hi, my name is Anna-Maria and I am a qualified integrative counsellor. My aim as a counsellor is to help people cope, manage or accept their own personal dilemmas'. Through listening and understanding, we will develop a plan that will help guide and support you.
My purpose as a counsellor, is to create a safe and open environment, for you to explore your experiences and confront them within safe and confidential surroundings. Although we can't undo our experiences, we can find a way to manage and process our feelings towards them,
I have a passion for helping, I see each person as unique and powerful. I offer a diverse service, that will be shaped and guided to suit you.
