When I sign my clients off from their sessions, my heart sings for them and I feel very proud to have made a big difference in their lives.

I’ve always been interested in sociology and psychology after studying it at school.

After experiencing trauma in my late teens and very early twenties, I became very aware of how trauma can affect the human psyche and how it had affected me as a young woman made me want to learn and understand it more.

Throughout my career as a bilingual Personal Assistant, I have always worked with people on a one-to-one basis and so understanding them has been one of my life’s passions.

I experienced Solution-Focussed Hypnotherapy for myself when I had a fear of flying. We didn’t talk about my fear but after 6 sessions, I took my flight to Bangkok with no fear and enjoyed the flights. I took 6 flights in 10 days as part of my trip.

This experience made me decide to study and be trained in Solution-Focussed Hypnotherapy – Mind Coach which I completed in 2018. I achieved a level 4 Diploma and was so pleased to have decided to work in this area to further my career.

After 17 years of running my own business, I finally started my new career as a Fully Certified Solution-Focussed Hypnotherapist – Mind Coach and am proud to be a member of 2 major organisations, the Association for Solution-Focussed Hypnotherapy and the National Council for Hypnotherapy.

My work is my passion and my core values are compassion, empathy and authenticity.

Online Hypnotherapy

Hypnotherapy has been found to be just as effective when done online as face-to -face sessions. Some therapists only work online. I prefer to work face-to-face but also enjoy working online too.

Online sessions can be a great benefit for people who would prefer to access therapy at home and would prefer not to travel. It’s also COVID safe and you can experience the effects of the sessions and the hypnosis in the comfort of your own home.

I use the Zoom platform for my online sessions and this works very well. All you will need is a laptop, computer or iPad/Phone, earphones and a safe comfortable place to enjoy the experience knowing that you will not be disturbed.

Working Online does enable me to reach lots of people nationally and internationally. If online therapy is something you might be interested in, please contact me.

Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react.



"I have just completed my series of sessions with Maria.  She has unearthed a level of inner confidence and calmness during my working days that have significantly reduced my stress levels.  This is the most content I have felt both in and out of work for many years.  Thank you Maria"


Anxiety and Self-Confidence

"Having made various calls to therapists, I knew from the first moment I spoke with Maria that she was the right therapist for me. Maria is committed, knowledgeable, supportive and very understanding and patient. Now some two months later, I feel mentally stronger, calmer and more self- confident than ever before. I am ready to get on with the rest of my life. Darkness to Light is an outstanding counselling service."

"My sessions with Darkness2Light helped me understand why I have an Eeyore tendency, and how to overcome it. Long-term sleeping problems meant I was running off my primitive urges. By focusing on positive thoughts and actions, and relaxing through listening to Maria's lovely voice, after only five sessions I have changed my attitudes and increased my understanding. Highly recommended."

Weight Management

"I had my second session with Maria today and I have to say I am really enjoying the experience and I am learning a lot. Maria is a truly warm and friendly lady who put me at ease straight away. I am so excited to see the results of our sessions together. I would highly recommend Maria to all who are wishing to move forward in their lives and overcome any hurdles."


Anxiety and Bruxism

"Just to say that after coming to see you recently concerning my anxiety issues and problems with teeth grinding I am pleased to inform you that I now feel much better and the grinding issue has eased off greatly and my anxiety issues have eased as well. Only four appointments and I feel much better and happier with life. Thank you so much."


Confidence in Presenting

I visited Maria twice and both times was so impressed with her knowledge of not only how the brain works but how our emotions are so linked to our mindset.  She helped me enormously and I can't recommend her high enough.  She's a definite light in any darkness.

Maria was amazing.  She is a very positive person and very professional.  I would highly recommend her service.
