Maria Villaseca

Senior Psychologist

Hi, I’m Maria, a dedicated and empathetic Registered Psychologist with over 25 years of experience specialising in individual treatment. My practice focuses on Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and Narrative Therapy—evidence-based interventions that empower clients to manage symptoms and uncover root causes for sustainable change.

Throughout my career, I have supported adults facing challenges such as addiction, stress, anxiety, depression, and personality disorders. My approach is characterized by warmth, empathy, and a genuine commitment to understanding each client’s unique experiences. I believe in creating a safe, non-judgmental space where clients can explore their thoughts and emotions freely.

 

I am fluent in Spanish, allowing me to effectively communicate and provide therapy to Spanish-speaking clients. 

I am known for my collaborative and client-centred approach, tailoring interventions to meet the specific needs of each individual. By fostering a strong therapeutic alliance, I empower clients to navigate their daily lives more effectively and achieve meaningful, lasting change.

Outside of my professional role, I am passionate about continuous learning and am committed to ongoing professional development to stay abreast of the latest therapeutic techniques and research findings.
