In this modern world we live in, we are exposed and overwhelmed by what we hear and see on a daily basis. Our "normal" now are days filled with violence, crime, trauma, stress, depression and burnout from long working hours and a rushed lifestyle. Our coping mechanisms are now drugs, alcohol and sex. All destructive. When we reach out and ask for help it is not a sign of weakness, but a sign of strength. It is a way to learn new coping skills and how to use them when facing our world and the challenges in it.
The beauty of therapy is that it can be helpful to everyone. Therapy is designed to assist people with a wide variety of issues from grief, job stress and relationship hurdles to personality disorders, depression, and anxiety. There is no set type of person that needs to be in therapy. You will be given a safe and protected environment to explore your most vulnerable emotions, memories, actions and thoughts. Sometimes you may laugh or you may cry, but you can expect therapy to be a space dedicated to you. It allows the freedom for self-exploration and healing without judgement or restriction.
“You will never be able to escape from your heart so it is better to listen to what it has to say.” True connection between a psychologist and a client can bring profound personal growth.

When consulting with a psychologist a channel is created for you to hear the true language of your heart.

In the more than 30 years of working with people from all walks of life, I know that we all have a need to live a life of meaning and purpose. Our day to day journey is seldom without challenges – emotionally, socially, and spiritually. Each of these challenges have a lesser, or more severe impact on the quality of our life - on the way we feel about ourselves, regarding our relationship with others and our spiritual growth. Although we do not always want to admit it, we all are wounded in some way. I do believe that the best gift you can give yourself in life, is to strive and work towards becoming the person you are meant to
My name is Mariska van der Meulen and I offer quality counselling at affordable rates. I chose the name Meraki as it really speaks to me about the supportive, non judgmental environment in which healing takes place.

As a counsellor my aim is to create a safe, compassionate and understanding space where we can explore solutions and find new empowering ways of dealing with challenges.
