About Me

“The courage to be happy also includes the courage to be disliked. When you have gained that courage, your interpersonal relationships will all at once change into things of lightness.”
 Ichiro Kishimi

My name is Maria Mala and my deep desire to understand people led me to Psychology.

To this day I am amazed by the fact that every one of us is percieving and interpreting the world around us through our own lens. At the same time I realize that this subjectivity can cause many misunderstandings and sufferings in our lives.

Therefore I help my clients on their way to understand and accept themselves which will allow them to function freely and thruthfully in their relationships with others and the world.

About conversations

A conversation is one of the most valuable and accessible tools of psychology. During our conversations you will experience deep encounter that is based on full acceptance, zero judgement and perceiving person in her/his wholeness. I believe, such conversation itself is already healing enough and if we add the ability to ask the right questions in the right time and in the right way, we are already on the way to the better future.

In a conversation I am here with you and for you. I will provide you with time, space, tools and resources how to embrace yourself and become a person you want to be.  Because every change begins with understanding and acceptance.


In our conversations we can talk about topics like:

  • Self-Acceptance & Worth 
  • Understading Emotions
  • Romantic Relationships
  • Parenting & Upbringing
  • Intimacy
  • Self-Realization & Career
  • Building Resilience – coping with changes & difficult situations
  • And many more…
