Hi! I’m Marta, I have recently obtained a diploma in psychotherapy and am working towards full registration as a therapist.
What can I help with?
It may be you have had a low mood, anxiety, depression, anger or just feeling ‘stuck’ at this point in your life. I would love to work with you to find a sense of calm in your life and offer tools and knowledge that will enable you to feel differently. It may be you have a mild phobia or have experienced a trauma that is impacting your everyday life. I would like to help you come to a place where you once more feel in control of your emotions and reactions. What type of therapy am I offering? It is short-term, solution focused therapy (typically 4-6 sessions). All the techniques are evidence based and work with our brains and bodies natural responses.
Coaching is a form of learning, where a coach supports someone else (often called a coachee) to make progress in some way. Progress might include; to reach a goal, solve problems, or create learning and change. Coaching is normally a conversation, or series of conversations, one person has with another. The coach works to create a conversation that will benefit the other person, in a way that relates to their objectives. Coaching conversations might happen in different ways, and different environments. For example, in person, by telephone, over Skype.
My ten year experience in coaching proves that collaborative coaching is more effective to help someone gain their own insights into a situation. I facilitate a coachee through a process of enquiry, learning and action. My aim is to help my client achieve positive outcomes and find solution. For the person being coached, the relationship feels like partnership of equals. I believe in the ability of the individual to create ideas, decide for themselves and move their situation forward.
Solutions-focused coaching is one of the most powerful coaching styles. At its core is the focus on helping the coachee find solutions rather than problems, building on strengths rather than weaknesses and finding positive ways forward rather than examining barriers. By directing energy in a positive way focusing on strengths and working towards a solution. The coachee will feel motivated and energised rather than de-motivated and demoralised, a feeling you have probably experienced when problems and difficulties are discussed and analysed.
Career change coaching is a mix of life coaching and career coaching that focuses specifically on job satisfaction and work-life balance. Here are some of the aspects you can expect when working with a career coach:
We are all looking for the same thing - HAPINESS. Some people find joy in their career, others find it in a romantic relationship, and some in a new sense of self-confidence. No matter your goal, introducing life coaching will ensure you reach it in the near future. If you are lost, distracted, unsure, unmotivated, lacking confidence, have lost your passion for life, or just want to make some changes, what you need is to ask for support from a professional.
A life coach can help a person to identify strengths, develop them, and identify personal and professional goals. Their role is to assist the coachee throughout the change process.
Do you want to improve your life or relationship? Change your habits? Change the way how you think about yourself or how you feel about others? Cognitive Behavioural Coaching will help you to make desired changes.
The effective principle of CBC is this: what we think about a situation, affects how we feel about it. As we can control what we think of things, we can therefore subsequently control our feelings. The tools and methodology used in CBT can equally be applied to non-clinical scenarios, such as dealing with lack of motivation, confidence issues and general personal or professional skill development.
With regards to leadership and business, CBC was developed with the intention of aiding individuals in overcoming functional weaknesses or mental obstacles within the workplace.
I work with adults (18+) who suffer from stress, anxiety, alcohol problems, eating issues and phobias. I treat all my clients with respect, compassion and understanding. At the free consultation session we discuss your needs and expectations. This is an opportunity for you to meet me and ask questions. The first session is focused on your issues and their cause. I create a safe environment for you to talk about problems you may be facing in your life. Based on the gathered information I discuss with you a therapeutic approach and support I offer between sessions. The first session always concludes with hypnosis tailored to your personal needs. In between sessions you can listen to a hypnotherapy script which I will record for you. I may also offer other tools to help you with your specific problems. We also stay in touch by email or phone between our sessions.
Stress, anxiety and depression are common reactions to challenges we may face at any stage of life. They can look a lot alike, but there are distinct differences. Stress is a response to daily pressures or a threatening situation, while anxiety is a reaction to the stress. Anxiety, which has no clear cause, tends to last longer and be more difficult to treat. Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy targets the underlying causes of your worries and fears – not just the symptoms. It will challenge your irrational thoughts, so you can identify how your behaviour is impacting on your life and causing difficulties. This method of treatment is designed specifically for your personal symptoms.
Weight management is not about dieting - it is about replacing unwanted habits with healthy eating habits. Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy sessions encourage you to recognise your your thoughts and behaviours and modify your behaviours to successfully change your relationship with food and changing unwanted habits to positive habits. Since I created the Empower Me programme I have successfully helped my clients to lose weight and learn how to maintain a healthy diet , change eating habits and feel better about their body shape.
Empower me programme is for everyone who wants to take control, have a healthy relationship with food and stay healthy. If you want to lose weight, stop binge eating, change your diet to a healthy one, feel good about your body and yourself - this programme is definitely for you.
The programme combines awareness skills developed through mindfulness, self-reliance building skills through hypnotherapy and building goal focused mindset through coaching. You will learn to convert negative thoughts into powerful thinking, how to use Emotional Freedom Technique to manage cravings and how to exercise to improve your metabolism and release endorphins.
Each week you will have 1-hour, one-to-one online coaching or hypnotherapy session, get access to online video and audio material for you to practice by yourself, which includes mindfulness meditations, online workouts and mindful eating skills. You will also get access to my online workouts: Vinyasa Yoga, Mindful Pilates, Body Strength workouts, dance and many more.
At the end of the programme, depending on your progress and wish, you may sign up for further coaching sessions to support you to maintain your progress towards your goals. The frequency of these would depend on what you want to achieve.
It proves to be more effective than any other therapy in helping you stop smoking; usually effective with just two sessions.

The value of mindful movement are the same as any other mindfulness practice. We bring our full attention to the present moment to experience here and now. We bring our awareness to movement and focus on our breath or the way how our body feels as it moves. When our mind wonders, we bring our attention back to the prac
Self Sabotage Hypnotherapy sessions:
My issues are pretty complex and I signed up for a block of 6 sessions with Marta. Wasn't expecting miracles. Before the sessions I found it hard to focus on my goals such as business, health and had trouble managing my emotions.
Although life isn't magically perfect I must say the transformation over these 6 weeks are massive
I started running and still going regularly (never been exercising in my life before)
Eating habits have improved
I'm laser focused on my business (which has always been an issue. I even deleted whatsapp and facebook which were the two apps I was very addicted to.
I see things from another perspective now, especially with my partner. I understand him more.
I'm more determined than ever before to achieve my goals in relationships, as a mother and professionally. I can see, touch and feel it now.
Things that do not bring value to my life are now in the bin. I'm actually crying of joy and excitement because I can feel a new chapter in my life starting now.
Thanks Marta for your help. I couldn't put a price tag on such an improvement. Worth the investment.
I have an awful lot to thank Marta for helping me stop smoking. I smoked for almost 20 years and tried many times to quit before I decided to take a couple of hypnotherapy sessions to quit. After the first session I was able to quit and at the second session I learned new tools to cope with my anxiety which was the main reason why I couldn’t stop smoking.
Thank you Marta.
