About Maria

Prior to my career in hypnotherapy, I worked in high pressure corporate roles, whilst managing the demands of two young children. The relentless juggling of these demands led to significant stress and anxiety, and I experienced first-hand how stress can impact every aspect of our lives. Chronic stress can lead to unhelpful habits, weight gain, panic attacks, insomnia and negative self-talk that impacts self-esteem and overall quality of life.

Therapy and hypnotherapy helped me to overcome significant adverse life situations, re-frame my approach to life and deal with difficult emotions constructively. It is these huge shifts that have inspired and motivated me to support and empower my clients through their various life challenges.

The decision to re-train was a natural one and I qualified as a clinical hypnotherapist with additional psychotherapeutic training with the prestigious National College of Hypnosis and Psychotherapy (NCHP). NCHP have been training ethical hypnotherapists and psychotherapists since 1977 to the highest accredited standards available.

As a therapist, I remain fascinated by how our mental and emotional states can have such an impact on our physical wellbeing and vice versa. Anxiety, stress and trauma can manifest in physical symptoms and by learning to be present in our bodies, through meditation, breathwork and movement our mental health and quality of life can be positively impacted.

I understand how busy life can get and so I offer a range of appointment times during the week and on Saturday mornings (on request) both online and in person to suit you. Feel free to contact me with any questions about what I offer by booking a no-obligation consultation here.

I am certified in Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy CHP(NC) as well as a registered trainee member of the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) and adhere fully to their code of ethics and professional practice.

I am currently working towards full UKCP psychotherapy accreditation and my ILM Level 7 certificate in coaching and mentoring (equivalent to a Masters level qualification).

I am also an associate member of The National Society of Talking Therapies (NSTT) and registered with the Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC).

As part of my memberships, I'm also registered with the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) and have full professional indemnity insurance.

I have regular supervision and psychotherapy to ensure that I work to the highest ethical standards and to continue my professional development as part of my membership with the UKCP and NSTT.
