Hello and welcome!

My name is Maritxu (pronounced Mah-ree-choo). Based in the vibrant city of Edinburgh, Scotland, I am an experienced psychotherapist working fully online. 

I offer personalised therapy in English and Spanish to adults from diverse backgrounds, tailoring my approach to meet each individual's unique needs. My practice is guided by relational principles, ensuring that therapy is as distinct as you are.

I am dedicated to fostering an affirming space where every aspect of your identity—whether related to gender, sexuality, relationship styles, or neurodivergence—is not only respected but fully embraced. My practice is built on the principles of openness and acceptance, ensuring that you feel genuinely seen and supported.

Interested in exploring how we can work together? 

Get in touch today.

I look forward to connecting with you.

As a pluralist therapist, I fully embrace the diversity of your experiences. I believe that everyone is unique, and their therapeutic journey should reflect that. I draw from various therapeutic modalities (e.g., person-centred, psychodynamic, acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), psychosexual and relational), tailoring my approach to suit your specific needs and preferences. We will collaborate on a comprehensive exploration of your concerns and create a treatment plan aligned with your values and hopes for therapy. Not sure what your goals or values look like? That's okay. Bring that to therapy, and we can figure it out together.
