I am a qualified, experienced and registered psychodynamic psychotherapist with a consulting room at my home in Mitcham and also at London Bridge. I offer weekly open-ended therapy or ‘Time-Limited’ therapy (twelve sessions).
Our sessions will take place in a calm and confidential listening environment where you can talk and think about whatever you might be struggling with. It may take time but together, we will be able to gain an understanding of how you might be able think, feel and live differently and not feel alone along the way.
I understand that coming to therapy can be daunting, you have already taken the first step by investigating what help is out there for you. An initial consultation is an opportunity for us to meet and discuss how I could help you before you decide whether to take up more regular sessions.
My practice does not have a long waiting list and I shall endeavour to see you for an initial consultation within a week. I can offer appointments on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday daytimes and evenings and Saturday mornings.
I look forward to speaking with you. Maria.
