About me

My name is Mharia Rawlins and I have been working as a Holistic Therapist for over 10 years. I am person-centred in my approach and work with each individual as a whole being of mind, body, emotions and spirit. As each person is different and unique in their own way of being. I work to understand an individual’s experience from their point of view helping to reconnect them with their own way forward.

The purpose of working in a person-centred way is to facilitate each person’s actualising tendency (self actualising is the belief that all humans will pursue what is best for them).  This type of approach facilitates the personal growth and relationships of an individual by allowing them to utilise their own strengths and personal identity.

Counselling is used for various reasons and gives you a private and confidential opportunity to talk about your concerns with a qualified therapist who can help you examine your issues in a new light. Counselling does not measure the size of a problem but instead looks at the impact it is having on you and your well-being.

The key purpose of counselling is to help you feel that you have more control in your life, and to help you find the best way to manage your life circumstances at that time. There is a direction and purpose in therapy but it is one that you set, and I will help you to think through, plan ahead, and build up your resilience to move forward.

Counselling will take place over a contracted number of sessions which will be made clear to you at the start of your counselling. Counselling is a process and does not lead to immediate change for this reason it is important that you attend all the sessions so that over the weeks you will begin to feel differently. Together we will monitor changes in how you feel and changes in your outlook on life.
