ABOUT MARIA GARCIA-TEJON
I am a professionally trained Psychotherapist and Psychologist. I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. (MBACP).
I work with individuals, groups and organisations. With over 10 years experience in mental health and psychotherapy in varied positions and with diverse populations. I have dedicated my career to the support of others. Since training, I have worked between the UK, Spain and Germany. I have experience with the German and Spanish child protection services, directing a fostering organisation.
As a psychotherapist I have mostly worked with adults, adolescents and families from disadvantaged groups, at risk from exclusion, suicide, self-harm, abuse, depression, anxiety, and with learning disabilities and addiction problems. I have also co-facilitated Gestalt and CBT therapeutic groups for personal development and chronic fatigue.
I follow a holistic approach, focused on support, communication, relationship-building and self-awareness, empowering and supporting people to achieve their goals.
