“My job is to assist you in finding the answer that is right for you. Not the answer that would be right for me.”- John Dolan
I am Marije (Maria) Field and I am professionally trained and have a Postgraduate Diploma in Transactional Analysis. Over time I have incorporated other counselling tools, such as Motivational Enhancement Therapy, CBT techniques, Mindfulness, Brief Solution Focused Therapy and the Cycle of Change Technique.
I have more than 15 years’ experience working with children and adolescents who have specific learning difficulties, ADHD or who are on the Autistic spectrum who experience poor emotional and mental health.
Over the years I’ve worked for CGL (drugs and alcohol dependency), the hospice Martlets (bereavement and end of life counselling) and the national charity Mind. I have also led Support Groups for parents who suffered from anxiety and depression.
I have experience working with a variety of presenting problems:
• Drugs and alcohol
• Emotional abuse
• Self-harm and suicide
• Anxiety and panic attacks
• Bereavement and loss
• LGBTQ+ awareness
(If you would like a full list of the courses I have attended and certificates I have attained, see the Transactional Analysis page.)
I am a member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy), UKATA (UK Association for Transactional Analysis), EATA (European Association of Transactional Analysis) and ITAA (International Transactional Analysis Association).
I adhere to the Codes of Ethics and Professional Practice as set by these professional bodies and have regular supervision with other experienced psychotherapists.
