Edinburgh Counsellor

263 Leith Walk, Edinburgh EH6 8NY, UK – 07765 660545

Maria has all the qualities necessary to be able to help people who are going through difficult times in their lives. She is not only highly professional at all times, but she has a genuine interest in people, and this comes across in counselling sessions with her, making clients at ease and feeling that she actually cares about them and about finding solutions to their problems. Another important quality is that she is extremely open-minded and non-judgmental, which allows her to understand different perspectives on situations and to provide solutions to problems that may not have seemed obvious. Maria is also trilingual, in English, Italian, and Spanish, and this is a great help to clients who want to be able to discuss problems in their own, native, language. For all of these reasons, I cannot rate Maria highly enough as a professional counsellor.

Edinburgh & Lothian Council On Alcohol

91 Rose St, Edinburgh EH2 3DT, UK – 0131 337 8188

Great people at ELCA. You will not regret a visit; they will help you in a way that is best suited to you. You, after all, are the person with the power. You may want to pay a visit for what you think is quite a trivial issue, but if alcohol is affecting the way you do certain things, I'm sure the staff won't treat you with any less respect than they showed me (and I can feel quite self-conscious/lachrymose speaking about very personal issues - the staff at ELCA are like diamonds; they are wonderful). I had about eight sessions and got myself sorted out and after three months, I popped in just to say hi and thanks and tell them that I was still feeling good. I'm going to pop in and visit again next week to say the same thing.

Great friendly supportive people.
