Opt 4 counselling



I often hear from clients that they have been putting off seeking help, sometimes for many years. This may be because they felt let down in the past, feel that they somehow aren’t worthy of help, or simply have a fear of the unknown. As a result, they struggled for much longer than they needed to.

I hope that by listing some of the feedback received from my past clients, I can offer some reassurance to encourage those who may still be uncertain about reaching out for help.


Maria is so lovely and understanding. After a few sessions, I feel I have the confidence to move forward with my life and have more optimism for the future. Would definitely recommend Opt4Counselling with Maria.” – A.H.  September 2021


“Thank you so much for all your help over the past 12 months Maria – you have been brilliant and I looked forward to our sessions enormously, particularly when the stuff was hitting the fan on a minute by minute basis!  I would have struggled so much more without you. I now feel that I am building a new life, new home and new me – it’s been baby steps and hard earned but I’m incredibly grateful for all your help and support. Thank you.”  – T.B.  September 2021


“Warm, understanding, patient, thoughtful and considered. My experience of our sessions was that they helped me immensely during a low point, giving me space to think about issues in my life, gain clarity, and feel a crucial sense of support and guidance.” – F.B.  May 2021
