About Me

Maria Davies, MSc, FDA, MBACP, MNCP

Hello! I’m Maria

Licensed Therapist

I’ve always been drawn to helping people, long before I defined it as counselling. My work has always been focussed on supporting others. I guess my clients, friends and colleagues would describe me as warm, approachable and genuine with a sense of humour!.

Before becoming a Counsellor, I found myself in a black hole from which I struggled to climb out of it.  Realising I needed support  I saw a counsellor who helped me see the light again. It was transformative and inspired me to train as a Counsellor in order that I can support others in the way I had been supported.

Having been a client I understand how much courage it takes to phone or visit a therapist. I remember feeling worried about what I would say.  How much would I reveal? Would I like the therapist? Would the therapist like me? However, it was a life changing decision which is why I am so passionate about helping people achieve their goals. If you are looking for someone compassionate, trustworthy with a wealth of experience, then you’ve come to the right place. Please contact me for further details and we will discuss options that suit you.
