About me

Hello, my name is Mariana and I offer one-to-one, long and short term counselling from North West London.

I offer a safe, non-judgemental space so that you feel supported and empowered to explore the concerns and dilemmas that have brought you to counselling. You may be facing a particularly difficult set of circumstances, trying to manage a trauma or a personal crisis. Perhaps life just feels anxiety-provoking, confusing or joyless. I work alongside my clients in a sensitive, thoughtful and compassionate way, mindful of the complexities and vulnerabilities that each individual brings. I am interested in you, your past, your present and your future.

In our work together, we might be working towards recognising and changing negative patterns of behaving, thinking or relating; exploring ways of improving communication or finding strategies for managing difficult situations; we may be unravelling a particularly entrenched sense of stuckness or working towards improved self-esteem. At all times, my goal is to support you in feeling more confident, more resilient and better equipped to make changes that will enhance the quality of your life.

My practice is based in peaceful and comfortable premises, very near to Finchley Road tube and easily accessible by public transport.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a qualified integrative counsellor with experience working with men and women of different ages and ethnicities. As an integrative practitioner, I am able to draw on different approaches and techniques that suit the person you are and the issues that you present with.

I have experience working across a wide range of issues including anxiety, stress, depression, bereavement, coping with cancer and other physical illnesses, recovery from addition, low-self esteem, childhood sexual abuse and relationship problems. I worked for several years in a low-cost counselling service and more recently, in a cancer support charity where I provided one-to-one counselling, and facilitated a patient support group.

I have an MA in Integrative Psychotherapy and Counselling and a Diploma in Integrative Counselling from the Minster Centre. I am a registered member of the UKCP and abide by their ethical standards. I am on a register accredited by the Professional Standards Authority. Additionally, I am a registered member of BACP (MBACP) and work within their ethical framework.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

BACP

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.

UKCP

UK Council for Psychotherapy

The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.

As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.

UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
