About me

Greetings, I am Maryna Erickson, a qualified Humanistic Integrative counsellor. I am both welcoming and accessible and committed to supporting individuals  in their exploration of emotions, fostering self-awareness, attaining self-acceptance and nurturing personal growth.  

I have experience working with adults from diverse backgrounds, addressing a broad spectrum of concerns such as anxiety, depression, OCD, low self-esteem, loneliness, relationship challenges, chronic pain and other difficulties.

I began my professional journey as a nurse and it was during this period that I really started appreciating the emotional aspect of care, which laid the foundation for my interest in psychotherapy and my eventual counselling career. I value the uniqueness and individuality of each person, recognising that their stories and aspirations are as diverse as their backgrounds.

Beyond my professional endeavours, I am deeply devoted to my family and therefore intimately familiar with the intricacies and challenges inherent in balancing professional and personal life. Drawing from this insight, I am able to offer support to individuals navigating relationship complexities, parenting challenges and significant life transitions.

How I work

I recognize that building trust takes time, and my approach is primarily client-led, which means that I tailor the pace of the sessions to your comfort. In our sessions, you're free to share without fear of judgement or rejection, whenever you deem it appropriate. I cultivate a safe, caring, and respectful environment while gently encouraging your personal exploration. By integrating various approaches, methods, and theories, I can more effectively meet your specific needs. 

As a Humanistic counsellor I believe in the power of self-discovery and the innate potential within each person. My personal experiences of adaptation and resilience provide me with a unique perspective on life. I am deeply attuned to the complexities of cultural and personal identity.

I am looking forward to hear from you and address any inquiries you may have. Feel free to reach out to me via text message, phone, or email.

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
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).
