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. It is a Greek word meaning "to do something with soul, creativity or love; to put something of yourself in your work". 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.
I offer relationship counselling. This includes marriage counselling, premarital counselling, couples counselling, divorce counselling, LGBTQ counselling and family counselling. I also offer individual counselling, as well as counselling for parents of teenagers.
No matter how difficult life may feel at this moment, together we can discover the solutions and changes that you want in your life. I sincerely believe that using therapy to provide support and assistance in a compassionate, non-critical, understanding environment is my life's calling.
