Meditation - Maureen Ritchie Counselling Adelaide
“It is inner stillness that will save and transform the world”
Eckhart Tolle

Meditation is a useful tool for personal growth, inner peace, relaxation, stress relief, health and wellbeing. Combined with a holistic, healthy lifestyle, meditation is a great cure for all the things that ail us in the modern world. Meditation is the art of stillness. Learn how to stop your mind from racing and how to better manage the constant chatter, ever present. I run regular ongoing, guided meditation groups and teach meditation techniques as an Accredited and Registered Meditation teacher with the Meditation Association of Australia, the national peak body representing meditation and meditation teachers.

“If we do not change the direction we are going, we are likely to end up where we are headed”
Chinese Proverb

I have worked as a professional Social Worker for over 20 years. In this capacity I have worked with people of all ages, counselling on a broad range of issues. Most people do not make a decision to seek counselling lightly. Often their usual method of tackling problems have not met with success.

Being caring, confidential and non-judgemental underpins my approach to counselling. I bring to the counselling relationship openness, respect and a sincere desire to help. I believe that feeling safe and understood are important in order to work through problems. I also find that my genuine caring and warmth is felt by the individuals with whom I work. I understand that people can feel a little nervous particularly if they have never undertaken counselling before. My aim is to provide a relaxed environment which is warm and inviting and my clients often comment on that aspect in positive terms.


Sessions go for approximately one hour and following our first session where we identify the issues that need resolving, I often suggest 3-4 weekly or fortnightly sessions with a further review after that time. It is not possible to indicate how many sessions you may require, it will depend on the issues to be worked through, but is always negotiated around your needs and personal preference. After hours appointments are available.

I work with both individuals and couples.
