About Maria Naranjo
Our aim is to reduce the need for people to resort to self-harming behaviours such as drug and alcohol abuse, eating problems, self-injury and other such behaviours.

In 2014 I had a life changing experience that brought me into close contact with the mental health service provision. At that time, despite my extensive professional and educational experience, I felt lost in the system.
When I approached my GP, he gave me a 20 page booklet with information about all the counsellors working in my area, classified by their therapeutic approach. It didn’t mean anything to me.

I base my interventions in a humanist approach based upon peer support principles of mutuality, empowerment, empathy, strengths based and recovery focused.
Some people need to talk, some people need exercises to keep negative thoughts at bay, some people need body awareness. People are the experts in their own lives. My role is not knowing the answers, it is asking the questions.
My training, work experience and any achievement
Maria Naranjo is Spiritual Psychologist, Kundalini Reiki Master, NLP and Mindfulness practitioner and educator.

Maria trained as Health Psychologist in 1993 and has been practicing counselling and coaching since 2003. She holds a Postgraduate Certificate in Education and a Masters Degree in Cognitive Science.

Maria is very interested in a holistic approach to the human experience. She believes that the human being is composed of multiple systems that exist along different dimensions.

Whilst working with people who were contemplating suicide, Maria has researched in order to find formulas to help people who are in distress.

Maria has been seeking answers from assorted disciplines: Psychology, New Age, Paganism, Neuroscience, Physics, Religion, and many others.
Now, Maria is aware that “there are not magical solutions”. Each person has a journey and Maria can help you to hold your hand for a while.

Maria adheres to professional and ethical value base as set out by British Psychology Society and COSCA. My work is underpinned by my psychological training encompassing a broad base knowledge of human development, behaviour, cognitive processes and psychoeducation

“Mental illness is (or can be) a healing process whereby an individual overcomes the impossibility of their own situation, and the insanity of the culture at large. It is not individual humans who are fundamentally disturbed, but the culture which is dangerous and insane, warping and distorting the natural human into the artificial confines of local cultural existence”.
R.D. Laing
