Maria Pieretti NCP, SAC, GHR Specialising in Depression, Anxiety, Couples Therapy, Child Therapy


Thank you for visiting my website....

I value difference, individuality, honesty, connections, relationships and people finding their own path.  I know that at times I don’t have all the answers, though I may have a suggestion or two, but what I do know is that I am good at helping find solutions, can understand being ‘stuck’ and I am not scared of facing my fears.

Central to therapy is talking to someone who offers understanding and acceptance. Being really heard, sometimes for the first time, allows us to unload some of our burdens.

I am a member of the National Council of Psychotherapists and the Suffolk Association for Counselling.   I specialise in working with anxiety and depression, couples therapy, grief therapy and have spent over a decade working with young people and teenagers.

I offer 60 minute sessions.  The first session includes a free 30 minute consultation.

Other therapies I offer

Ask a Question

Couples therapy
Beginning any form of therapy can seem daunting, but experience shows that people find couples therapy even harder. Being able to talk through your fears, dreams and inner most thoughts to a stranger on your own is easier than having your partner sat in the same room. The fear is that they may disagree with your opinion, or that you may end up feeling guilty for hurting one another’s feelings. Some believe that it will make matters worse. If you can get over the initial fear of entering couples therapy, you may find that there is a sense of relief, even after one session, because something is finally being done and agreeing to do this means that they care.
Anxiety, Depression & Stress
Stress is any demand placed on your brain or physical body. People can report feeling stressed when multiple competing demands are placed on them. The feeling of being stressed can be triggered by an event that makes you feel frustrated or nervous. Anxiety is a feeling of fear, worry, or unease. Depression is more than simply feeling unhappy or fed up for a few days. Most people go through periods of feeling down, but when you're depressed you feel persistently sad for weeks or months, rather than just a few days. I can help you by showing you how to use the tools you already have to deal with this.
Working with children & teenagers
I have worked with children, teenagers and young adults for over a decade now, helping them resolve all sorts of issues. If you are struggling with self harm, panic attacks, confidence issues, exam stress, suicidal thoughts or OCD, I can help you.
Grief therapy
The aim of grief therapy is to help you cope with grief or mourning after the death of a loved one. It also helps with major changes in your life that trigger feelings of loss – for example the loss of a job or a divorce. Grief can be all consuming and I can help you understand your grief and give you the tools to deal with your feelings.
