About me

Maria Harding MSc, Adv Dip in Psychotherapy, BA (Hons), UKCP and BACP registered
I am a private and NHS UKCP accredited psychotherapist. I have an integrative and psychodynamic training and am experienced in working with a range of difficulties including complex depression and anxiety, self-esteem issues, relationship problems and personality disorders. I have provided assessments and psychological interventions within a range of NHS settings since 2011 including a secondary care complex depression and anxiety setting and a specialist personality disorder service (South West London and St George’s Mental Health NHS Trust South London & Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust).
Professional Accreditation
The UKCP is accredited by the Professional Standards Authority. A UKCP psychotherapist undertakes a minimum four year post graduate in depth training in how to work with a variety of people with a range of emotional distress, mental health issues and difficulties. A UKCP psychotherapist follows a strict code of ethical practice and is required to demonstrate continual professional development as well as regular supervision. I am also accredited with the BACP.

Areas of interest

I am qualified in utilising evidence based interventions such as Dynamic Interpersonal Therapy (DIT) and Mentalization Based Therapy (MBT) to help people whose interpersonal difficulties (both in their private and work life) contribute to symptoms of depression and anxiety. Therapy can help to reduce emotional suffering, support change, and promote personal growth. It is a collaborative process and the insight gained can help people look at life from a different perspective and enable them to respond differently to life’s challenges. People often seek support when they are facing life transitions or feel stuck in their lives. However there are many reasons why people might seek the help of therapy. These might include:
 Relationship difficulties or break ups
 Problems in the workplace
 Loss and bereavement
 Self-esteem issues
 Difficulties relating to childhood
 Trauma
 Depression
 Anxiety and stress
 Personality disorder
