Often, a crisis or major life event can act as a trigger to think about therapy or counselling for ourselves. Sometimes, though, we are just low, miserable or depressed in our day-to-day lives, and looking for a way to gain greater clarity around our thoughts, feelings and behaviour. This is where counselling and psychotherapy can help.
When you consider counselling or psychotherapy, it is often the case that you are seeking ways to improve the quality of your life and have better relationships, or simply want to have someone to talk to who can listen to your story in a supportive way.
Psychotherapy gives us the time and space in a non-judgemental, safe, supportive and confidential environment to reflect on what works for us in our lives, and to recognise changes we might like to make.
Through therapy, we gain greater awareness of our emotions and our behaviours. With this awareness, we feel more in control of our lives, are able to make informed choices, and come to recognise that there are always more options available. In this way, we can become more contented with our lives and with who we are.

Marta Iturrioz //
Marta Iturrioz offers bilingual counselling and psychotherapy to individuals and couples in English and Spanish. She is BCAP-registered and a graduate member of the British Psychological Society.
Marta’s experience spans more than 20 years. After completing a psychology degree in Spain, she trained in psychodynamic psychotherapy and worked as an Adult Psychotherapist with the NHS for 15 years; Martha also trained with Relate, developing her understanding of human relationships and the dynamics of couples, subsequently working as a couples counsellor. She has now practiced from Sheen Therapy Centre for over a decade, and currently also works as a voluntary school counsellor.
Over her long years of experience, she has come to understand the power of true listening and the profound effect that feeling truly heard can have. It is through this shared experience that a bond based on trust, and a safe space, is created – allowing us, over time, to experience a shift in the way we perceive ourselves and others in the world. It is an empowering process that promotes growth and development.
You may be suffering from crippling mental health problems or more benign life issues, from dealing with conflict, confusion and relationship problems, to stress and anxiety, lack of self-esteem, family problems, bereavement, or feeling stuck. Over time, and with help, these symptoms or feelings can become diluted and lose their power, as the process of feeling understood at a much deeper level translates into feeling more accepting of yourself. When this happens, we see that a shift has taken place, as you will feel more integrated and more at ease with yourself.
The process described above does take time and commitment; it requires self-reflection and engagement. But it is an investment in yourself, with the intention of better equipping you for the future. In your first appointment, Marta will discuss what could suit you, and what would best fit into and around your life.
The most important first step is to choose the right therapist for you. Please feel free to contact Marta to discuss this, and allow yourself time to make your decision.
