My name is Maria and the aim of Taking Strides Counselling is to offer you a safe, warm and compassionate space where we can work together to explore your inner world. We can look at ways of coping with difficult thoughts, feelings and emotions and/or situations you may be struggling with. We will go at a pace which suits you and this can be short or long-term there is no time limit as to when you will feel ready to end counselling. By learning who you are we can move forward to where it is you want to be, whether this is accepting yourself or coping with particular emotions or situations.
My counselling is tailored to you as I believe that there is no one size fits all. By working in this way I can adapt to you and offer you the type of counselling you need rather than what I think will work which may include creative work, worksheets and mindfulness. You are the one who knows what you want to bring and you are my guide in your inner world.
By searching for a counsellor you have made a step toward healing yourself or you may just want to learn coping strategies, whatever it is counselling can help. I have a wealth of personal life experience and although I may not know how you feel, these help me to understand more of what you are bringing to your sessions.

I work with clients from all walks of life and help them to develop a plan moving forward with their lives. During the first sessions we will develop coping strategies and stabilisation before starting to work on the deeper rooted difficulties and healing from these. I am guided by my client as to the route they want to take and work alongside them so they feel supported and heard.

The client is the centre of the counselling so I try to understand what they need to help them to heal. I use a mixture of talking, worksheets, play, art and mindfulness in and between sessions. The first session is where we look at what brought the client to therapy and how they work best. The benefits of art and play is the sense of freedom this can bring to expressing yourself when words fail.
