Maritxu Arlegui

MSc, PGDip, Reg. MBACP 

Hello and welcome!


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

My pronouns are she/her. 

I'm an Edinburgh-based online therapist. 

My practice is built on the belief that different things may be helpful to us at different points in the therapy process because we are all unique individuals. 

I am gender, sexuality and relationship diversity (GSRD) affirming. I strive to create an inclusive, gentle and safe space for all. 


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 

Are you struggling with mental health concerns or other challenges in your life?

Do you feel stuck, overwhelmed, or unsure of how to move forward?

As a pluralistic therapist, I draw from a range of evidence-based approaches that take into account your individual strengths, preferences, and goals for therapy.

“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.”
