Maritxu Arlegui

MSc, PGDip, Reg. MBACP 

Hello and welcome!


I'm Maritxu (pronounced Mah-ree-choo). 

Online therapist based in Edinburgh, Scotland. 


I work with adults from diverse backgrounds in a relational and holistic manner. As a pluralistic therapist, I tailor my approach to support you on your individual needs rather than subscribing to a one-size-fits-all approach to therapy. My practice is inclusive of gender, sexual and relationship diversity (GSRD), neurodivergence, kink and LGBTQIAPOC+ affirming. 

To learn more about me and my way of working, you can read about it here.


I look forward to connecting with you. 

How I can help you 

As a pluralistic therapist, I collaborate with you and take into account your individual strengths, preferences, and goals for therapy. Don't worry if you don't know what these are for you - we can figure that out together.

Some of the needs I support clients with (not an extensive list):

“Working with Maritxu has been genuinely life changing. She is so patient and takes the time to build a really trusting relationship. Never forcing anything I’m not ready to talk about.  For me it was really important that I found a therapist I could relate to and who shared my values with regards to body positivity and more contemporary/holistic approaches to mental health and well-being. She also takes the time to provide extra resources which I cannot emphasise enough how invaluable these have been to my recovery. I am so grateful to have found a therapist who is such a fountain of kindness and knowledge but who is also willing to learn alongside you.”
