"Mimi" Marie Goess-Saurau, PhD
I'm a therapist and was raised in the UK, I went to study in America to become a Psychologist to gain a wide variety of training experiences that I could not get here in the UK. This gave me an acute understanding that everyone is unique and treatment needs to be tailored to your personal set of circumstances.
I’m here to listen and give you a place where you are safe and heard.
I’m committed to:
+helping you achieve a better understanding of yourself
+help you work through your challenges
+move forward with your life.
I offer a 15 minute free consultation, where we can discuss what you need. I can then assess if I am the right therapist for you moving forward.

Health and Care Professions Council
The HCPC are an independent, UK-wide health regulator. They set standards of professional training, performance and conduct for 16 professions.
They keep a register of health professionals who meet their standards, and they take action if registered health professionals fall below those standards. They were created by a piece of legislation called the Health Professions Order 2001.
Registration means that a health professional meets national standards for their professional training, performance and conduct.
Areas of counselling I deal with
Other areas of counselling I deal with
My training has specialized me to work with young adults (18-30), those in any higher education and in early years of their careers.
Being in a higher learning environment is stressful and at times talking with someone and gaining new insights and strategies to dealing with the unique circumstances you are in can be helpful.
