Maria Pieretti

NLP Practitioner in Elmswell

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 have always wanted to help people and have extensive experience working with young adults for over 20 years, which has given me lots of techniques which I use today in my therapy room.

I specialise in OCD, Anxiety, Self-Harm and Anger Therapy, and I also help couples who are struggling in their relationships. The techniques I use will help you to understand that you don't have to cope with it, live with it or let it define you. There are other ways to control it, and one way is through therapy.

My professional and then my personal experience naturally lead me to becoming a therapist, using neuroscience-based therapies. I specialise in areas of OCD, Anxiety, Self-Harm and Anger therapy. I also work extensively with couples. I have extensive research experience in psychosomatic illnesses, and use proven effective therapies which I am qualified in. The therapies I use include; Psychotherapy, Counselling, The Human Toolbox - a neuroscience-based literacy foundation course, Thought Field Therapy (TFT), Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), Psycho-Image Therapy and Hypnotherapy.

I am fully insured, have an up-to-date DBS, and I am a member of National Council of Psychotherapists (NCP), The Suffolk Association for Counsellors (SAC), Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) and the General Hypnotherapy Council (GHC). I continue to update all my skills by attending courses, carrying out research and supervision.

I offer 60 minute sessions. The first 30 minutes of the first session is FREE OF CHARGE.
