Maria Thorndyke BIO:

I am a Registered Psychotherapist/Counsellor and Casework Supervisor and have almost 20 years' experience. I have worked in the health sector during this time and held many senior positions within different health organisations. I have facilitated many workshops and courses over the years in both the community and corporate arena. I enjoy working with people to help provide them with knowledge, skills and techniques to deal with stress/anxiety, confidence and general wellbeing. I originally trained in the UK and have been living with my family on the North Shore for 14 years. Hearts & Minds was one of the first organisations I had the pleasure to work with when I came to New Zealand and have worked with them in many capacities including facilitating workshops during this time. When I am not working, I enjoy spending time socializing with friends, walking my dog with my husband and spending time with my son who is a musician and enjoying watching him perform.
