Maria Jayne Forster

BSc, Dip Counselling & Family Therapy
Registered MBACP

I believe that, when we find ourselves in difficult times, we lose sense of direction and/or focus. It is important to take time to STOP and reflect on what's going on, in order to help us work out where we are going, recharge and set new goals.

I keep up-to-date with new trends in therapeutic models to help with individual clients. Whilst running my own private practice, I am a clinical consultant for Barnardo's, a StopSO therapist and provide services for the NHS.
