3 Years Experience

I am here for you. Don't be alone with your challenges. Offering services in a lower fee so that everyone can get help in time in an affordable fee. Discount is also available for students and to those suffering economically due to COVID-19 (after the first session).

It is time to take care of mental wellbeing. Efficient, research-based help is available at your own home and at a time that suits you best without long queues.

QUALIFICATIONS AND ACCREDITATIONS:
I hold a PhD in Behavioural Sciences and I am a fully qualified and dedicated Counsellor, Cognitive behavioural therapist and Hypnotherapist. I am a fully accredited Member of National Counselling Society (MNCS Accred.) and a registrant member of the National Hypnotherapy Society (MHS), UK.

ABOUT MY SERVICES:
I provide highly confidential and effective services in Counselling, Integrative Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Rational Emotive Behavioural Therapy (REBT), Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy (CBH), and Coaching; in-person, by Skype and Duo, on WhatsApp and by phone. Mixing the modes of services; in-person, Skype, WhatsApp and the phone can also be arranged. Online counselling, coaching and therapy are very flexible and time-efficient options as you can get services in your own home or in a location where you have access to a computer or mobile phone.

Promptly getting help which is flexible and that can be scheduled around other commitments is important when you go through life challenges. As a therapist, I recognise and take this seriously which is why I am offering Skype, Duo and WhatsApp sessions at short notice including evenings and weekends.

Sometimes it may just need a couple of sessions to get you back on the track and in other situations, of course, more time may need to be devoted as the best way forward.

ABOUT MY APPROACHES:
I use different psychological approaches and their combinations to ensure the best possible results. For example, REBT, Rational-emotional-behavioural -therapy is research evidence-based, effective approach and method, which can be used alone or combined with other approaches. I teach relaxation, mindfulness and hypnotherapy techniques to combat stress, helping you to flourish in your life and career. I also offer very efficient short-term therapy and hypnotherapy options for presentation anxiety, quitting smoking and other issues suitable for short term approach. Sometimes even one to three sessions are enough.

EFFECTIVE PROCESS AND SUPPORT BETWEEN SESSIONS:
I offer my clients free resources to read and exercises they can also do between sessions to gain skills for well-being and permanent change. I am eager to educate my clients about the approaches I use to help them gain transferrable skills and flourish in their lives. The CBT and REBT approaches are research-based and aim at making the therapist becoming unnecessary in the long run and for the client to gain skills making them their own therapist.

Clients are also free to call, text and email me between sessions if there are questions or urgent matters.

ABOUT MY PERSONAL BACKGROUND:
Besides professional qualifications, I have also my own personal experiences of mental health issues in my past. I had some traumatic experiences in my childhood and have experienced an anxiety disorder and depression. This has helped me better understand clients’ experiences and helps also to choose the best techniques. I have been given much positive feedback on this from my clients.

SUPERVISION AND PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT:
I am eager to further study and develop my skills to help my clients better. I have regular supervisions and attend various relevant professional training to keep my knowledge and skills up to date and in constant development.

RESULTS AND CLIENT REVIEWS:
The results have been excellent. I am described by clients as skilled, warm, approachable, sincere as well as able to challenge clients successfully to work through various challenges.

Here are some earlier testimonials:

“You are a warm and very good listener. I felt you understood me very well.” (Man 32 years)

“It was pleasant to share some parts of my life with Mia. She is a good listener, warm and easy to talk to.” (Man 67 years)

“I came across Mia and her services at a point in my life when I really needed someone to talk to and ventilate my thoughts. She is a warm and approachable person who sincerely wants to help her clients develop and move forward. “ (Woman 35 years)

“My experiences have been very positive. During our meetings, I feel safe and listened. It is very easy to talk to you and thank you for always being there for me. There has not been a problem/situation to which you have not been able to come up with some way dealing, accepting etc it. In addition, I feel like you are well prepared for our sessions and always try to find the best/most suitable ways of specifically helping me/teaching me how to help myself. In a nutshell, over the course of our therapy, you have provided me with some much-needed hope, self-acceptance and understanding of myself. I have already recommended you to a couple of my friends and so would definitely recommend you to others as well.” (Woman 19 years)

“My experience with CBT and Mia was great. Mia made me feel comfortable and safe in dealing with my problems. Furthermore, I felt like she really listened to me and had the knowledge/capability to help me. Hence, I can recommend her to everyone. As for the CBT approach, each of our session thought me something new and soothed me. Even at the worst times, the session made me feel better. She made sure that I knew that I could contact her (whenever), which comforted me a lot” (Woman 20 years)

“You showed me another way of living, the strength to keep on going and hope when I was down. I am so grateful for meeting you and for working with you. I feel so much better about dealing with my own problems and I am so happy about that. Thank you so much!” (Woman 20 years)
