Marilena is a licensed Health Psychologist and CBT therapist with several years of clinical experience in providing psychological services mostly with adult clients.
Marilena specialises in the treatment of anxiety disorders, stress and depression. She has also worked with groups on managing chronic pain and long-term conditions. She has a particular interest in perinatal psychological wellbeing and aims to support women and/or their partners who are dealing with postnatal depression, loss of a pregnancy or baby, as well as those trying to adjust to their family’s new dynamics and any related challenges.
The approach Marilena uses is evidence-based and tailored to each individual’s needs, usually following a Cognitive Behavioural or integrative model of therapy. Following an initial assessment and gauging which modality is mostly suited to the presenting issue and client, she aims to be transparent in what therapy will involve, always remaining open to her clients’ needs and goals for therapy.
Therapy provides a safe space for you to explore and share the thoughts and feelings that may cause you distress and affect your life. Marilena strongly believes in the power of a strong therapeutic relationship and thus is committed to creating a trusting environment that will help you discover new ways of approaching life.
