I have been invited to speak at the 2022 National Conference for Counseling and Psychotherapy on 29th-30th November at the Lecture Theatre, Lifelong Learning Institute Singapore
Restart, recharge, reconnect at National Counselling & Psychotherapy Conference 2022- our 4th annual edition. A gathering of the best minds in the industry. Learn from counselling and psychotherapy experts as well as thought leaders. Interact with industry practitioners and like-minded professionals.
The recent pandemic and the resulting economic recession have negatively impacted many people’s mental health. Frontline workers and young people have been some of the hardest hit. It has also created new barriers for people already suffering from mental illness. Virtual therapies, to a great extent, were a hindrance to effective treatment, but counsellors and psychotherapists around the world tried their best to help alleviate the problem. While they constantly worked out various interventions that would suit their clients, it has been found that therapists themselves are also on the brink of burnout. Hence in this conference, we aim to shed light on various pressing issues surrounding mental health that will help with the counselling and psychotherapy practice. We would also like to express our gratitude to our practitioners for their hard work as they remain our principal guardians in keeping our mental health in check.
Maria’s warm, caring and compassionate approach to my therapy immediately put me at ease and I felt very comfortable with her. She has helped me enormously during the time I have been seeing her and I will continue to do so. She is a truly wonderful therapist and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her.
Maria helped me gain clarity about many difficult issues. With her guidance, expertise and techniques, my life has turned around – especially my relationships with loved ones. Within a few sessions, Maria helped me feel confident and calm. Now I am able to accomplish the things I once thought were out of my reach.
My husband and I were having problems with our marriage and while I was initially hesitant to even consider therapy my husband convinced me to give it a try. I have to say that Maria has helped us tremendously and guided us in overcoming the issues that were present in our relationship and our marriage is back on track.
