Hello, my name is Maria Garcia. I am a professionally trained Psychotherapist and Psychologist. I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. (MBACP).
I work with individuals, groups, adolescents and organisations.
With over 10 years experience in mental health and psychotherapy in varied positions and with diverse population. I have dedicated my career to the support of others.
Since training, I have worked between the UK, Spain and Germany. I have experience with the German and Spanish child protection services, directing a fostering organisation.
As a psychotherapist I have mostly worked with adults, adolescents and families from disadvantaged groups, at risk of exclusion, suicide, abuse, self-harm, low self-esteem, anxiety with learning disabilities and addiction problems. I have also co-faciliated Gestalt and CBT therapeutic groups for personal development and chronic fatigue.
I funded a project directed to support women and their couples emotionally through pregnancy and postpartum. I invite you to read more about this in the Unfiltered Motherhood section.
I offer sessions in English, Spanish and German.
