Maria Xrisoula

Maria Xrisoula initially worked as a supply lecturer for Canterbury College teaching literacy and math to young adults who had Not been in Employment, Education or Training (NEETs) and is currently an Arts Counsellor (awaiting UKCP registration). She has worked with dementia patients and young adults with physical disabilities. Since 2015 she has been working with children as a play counsellor at the Place2Be. She is currently also working with women who are homeless, suffer addiction and have been or are actively engaged in sex work. Maria combines the anthroposophical approach to the arts as means for self-discovery and reflection, with psychodynamic and systemic theories as means of analysis, whilst honoring the principles of Person Centred Therapy.
