Maria Rogerson - MBACP, MA Counselling & Psychotherapy, BSocSc
I am an experienced, BACP registered counsellor and psychotherapist with extensive experience of working in private practice, the NHS and counselling organisations.
I offer in depth longer-term PSYCHOTHERAPY and supportive short-term and time-limited COUNSELLING.
Our current difficulties are frequently affected by present as well as past experiences and relationships. I offer a safe and confidential environment in which to talk about and address these issues. The psychodynamic approach that I use helps us to understand and explore the various factors that may be contributing to emotional distress, unwanted behaviours and difficult relationships, and to work towards a different outcome or resolution.
I have worked therapeutically with clients from a wide range of ages, backgrounds and needs, for over 20 years. This includes psychological therapy for moderate and severe mental health difficulties; and counselling for employees in large private organisations and in the public sector. My practice has also been enriched by working in different countries, cultures and organisations.
I work with a wide range of presenting difficulties including depression, self esteem, anxiety, panic attacks, somatic symptom disorder, anger management, loss and bereavement, illness, work related issues, trauma, abuse, gender and identity, relationship difficulties and personal development. I also have an interest on the impact of multi-cultural and multi-lingual environments on the sense of self, identity and functioning.
I welcome referrals from individuals, EAP's, the private and public sectors.
