Maria Angelou

Integrative Counsellor & Psychotherapist

Maria is a well-qualified counsellor and psychotherapist with nearly ten years’ experience in talking therapy. She has worked in a variety of therapy settings in third sector organisations and is able to address client concerns which may come from unhelpful experiences in the past and continue to affect the present, as well as those that are very much grounded in the here and now.

Maria emphasises a relational approach in her work which builds enabling, collaborative work with each client. This can help strengthen self-esteem as well as the quality of relationships in each client’s life, whether within a close relationship, with family, at work or with friends. Maria also offers particular knowhow drawn from extended experience providing bereavement counselling. She comes from a background in communications and media work before she trained to be a therapist and she also has a keen interest in environmental issues. This informs her approach to therapy and may fit with client backgrounds from time to time as well.

MA Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy, Grad. Diploma Psychology. As well as being fluent in English, Maria can also offer therapy in Greek.
