Maria E Olteanu-Furze ECP UKCP Reg MBACP Reg MBPsS
I believe in an open-minded attitude towards everything that a person goes through in their lives; there is a safe space where all of us can find peace of mind, regardless their past or present psychological conflicts.There is no moral or value judgement attached to my work; I believe that people are all equal, and good and bad are subjective concepts.
Unconscious processes shape our behaviour and our lives. Broadly speaking this means that we don’t know as much about ourselves as we think we do.
The unconscious is, as the word suggests, ‘un’-conscious but manifests in dreams, symptoms and patterns of behaviour. Often we know these patterns are damaging to ourselves and others, but we feel powerless to change them. More positively, the unconscious is also a source of creativity and imagination.
I work with people with a very wide range of concerns, such as depression, anxiety, relationship problems, conflicts and loss of a sense of meaning and purpose in life. We explore together feelings of sadness, anxiety, self-identity, self-worth, guilt, resentment, meaning, trauma, depression, loss, related to either self-crisis, relationships or work situations. However, it is not necessary to have a specific problem but simply desire to undertake a journey of discovery.
