Marta believes that therapy is beneficial because it allows people to share their stories and feel their emotions in an environment that is safe and considers their unique needs. She strive's to validate people's emotions (because they are understandable), to highlight their strengths (because sometimes people can't see them) and to build hope (because it can be restored).
Her approach draws from principles of Cognitive- Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and person centred techniques amongst others. She aim's to help people better understand emotions, process difficult experiences, address unhelpful behaviours and work towards the life they want. I have a
