Meet the therapist

Maritxu (Mah-ree-choo) MBACP, She/Her/Hers

I was born in Chile, South America. I moved to Scotland when I was younger and stayed here ever since!

I'm based in Edinburgh and work fully online. I am a native Spanish speaker and offer therapy in Spanish too. 

I am committed to providing an ethical therapeutic service and adhere to the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapists (BACP) ethical framework.

I attend regular supervision to ensure I'm providing the best possible service to my clients.
