"I knew I
needed to start therapy when I wasn’t able to have the radio on when I was on
my own driving home from work. The ‘noise’ inside my head had reached such a
level that I could only sit in silence. I had become so unhappy and so
desperate without realising it, becoming a person that I did not like. I was
putting myself in messy situations, emotionally tangling myself up and could
see no way out. I felt like a rat that was scurrying along from one dark place
to another. My unhappiness had been with me for a while. So long, in fact, that
I could no longer see it. It had become a part of me. Having therapy gave me
the space to look at everything. To emotional unravel and then put myself back
together again. To understand finally that it was up to me to take control and
make some painful but very necessary changes. I was able to grant myself
permission and began to realise that it was ‘okay’ for me to be happy. Therapy
allowed me to work out that it was something that I was entitled to. It was the emotional rock that I clung to
whilst I changed my life. I felt
supported and by using various exercises I got there and have now become well
equipped. I have all the tools at my disposal to break the negative patterns
that existed in my life. Things are very good now and the radio is back on with
me singing loudly along."

"Marta's sensitivity to the needs of
all of us - children and adults - was extraordinary, delicately helping us as
individuals and as a family. Being in therapy sounds like something out of a Woody Allen film, but in a very practical way it has profoundly changed
everything in our home. Our son is now so much more able to achieve his
potential and the dynamics between our two children are so much more

"I saw Marta a few times, following the break up of my marriage. I wanted to examine issues from my childhood, and to understand how they
had an ongoing impact on my relationships. I had regression therapy
which helped me revisit my childhood in situ. It felt like a
lot was achieved in such a short space of time. I feel much less
burdened by the past as a result, and much more assertive and confident.
Marta is a very warm, compassionate, kind and inspiring person. I
felt safe and reassured even during regression. I would not hesitate
in recommending her for any

"I’d reached a point in my life where I felt desperately unhappy
because of the thoughts that dominated my mind. I was tired of feeling
this way and had tried anti-depressants but they didn’t give me a long term
solution. It was obvious to me that I wasn’t capable of achieving a change in
my thought process by myself and as far as I was concerned the only long term
solution to my problems was to seek the support of a professional.
When I first began having regression therapy it was quite hard work because my
problems didn’t disappear as quickly as I’d naively predicted, but I preserved. Some positive results were apparent early on;
I saved up my strange thoughts to share
with my therapist and stopped boring my friends with my problems. I felt good
about myself because I had taken responsibility for my own life and was
beginning to deal with it in a much more positive and useful way.
Now two years on I have a wealth of practical tools which I
learnt from my therapy sessions, that I use on a daily basis to live a happier
and more fulfilled life. I learnt how to
set goals and targets and began to think about the future I wanted and could
have. I don’t panic any more, I eat well
and can drink moderately, I like myself and thus self destructive behaviour is
in the past.
I don’t ever want to stop learning how to
look after myself."

"At first seeing Marta I was a bit apprehensive, especially at seeing a woman and telling her my problems. She soon put me at ease and I felt totally comfortable with her. I am now able to see a lot more clearly, understand life in lots of different ways and I've also learnt a lot about myself!"

"I found working with
Marta very beneficial, helping to
explain and identify some of my deep routed compulsive habits and thought
patterns. During the time we had sessions together I found the strength
to make some major changes in both my personal and professional life making the
decision to leave my employer after 12 years of working together and to act
upon that decision overcoming feelings of low self-esteem and frustration.
Within a week of handing in my resignation I managed to source a new job in my
preferred industry, doubling my salary and inevitably re-confirming my faith in
my self worth which I believe I have regained through therapy.
Also I managed to shake
my personal relationship back on track, realising the importance to communicate
and express my needs and frustrations with my husband and have been able to
identify the changes that were necessary to keep my family together. My
inability to express myself seems to have repeated through many of my past life
analysis and suggestions have been very valuable to me and in turn to my
