Anchor Counselling - Maria Palej, Dip.Couns, Reg. MBACP
Are you struggling to find balance in your life?
Feeling anxious, tired and constantly stressed out?
Talking can really help with this...
I understand life can be difficult at times and we all need some added support from time to time. I offer therapy which is suited to your needs and will provide a safe, confidential and non-judgmental space to talk. I am a qualified integrative counsellor practicing in South East London. I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
People can come and see me for a variety of reasons, such as:
low self-esteem, anxiety, stress, depression, low mood, feeling sad, lack of motivation, anger, loss or bereavement, feeling lost, lacking general meaning or direction in life, panic attacks, addiction, relationship issues and family issues... and much more.
I understand life can be difficult at times and we all need some added support from time to time. I provide safe non-judgmental space where you can discover effective ways to support yourself and create better life.
What to expect in your first session: Approaching the idea of starting therapy for the first time, or again, can be an uncertain place to be in. First counselling session gives you space to get to know me better and ask therapy related questions you feel are important in making your decision.
It is also where you can tell me more about yourself and why you want to come into counselling.
Training, qualifications & experience
- Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling (CPCAB)

I am a fully qualified Integrative Counsellor and a member of the BACP and I work within BACP Framework for Good Practice.
I regularly attend talks, seminars and workshops to expand my knowledge, skills and understanding as a counsellor.
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
