About Dr Marie

Dr Marie Bukman has been in private practice for the past 23 years, and has vast experience in helping people overcome inner obstacles to happiness.  She is a compassionate, kind and empathetic listener with a wealth of life experience.


Marie helps people with trauma, relationship and life challenges, low confidence, grief, depression and anxiety.

Utilising Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Mindfulness, and Depth Psychology with a practical Cognitive Behavioural approach, Marie believes that therapy is about growing and doing things better. Marie's aim is to help you understand the core of the issue, and unglue it.  Learning to recognise destructive thought patterns and relationship habits is the first step, followed by changing old patterns that keep yielding the same unhappy results. Marie is also trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing) to facilitate healing from trauma, also complex trauma such as childhood experiences.

Marie teaches the arts of relaxation and meditation, unlocking the brain’s potential for high-level problem solving.  Marie firmly believes in the power of the human mind, and the ability to overcome fears, depression, challenging times and relationship issues.  The aim is self-awareness, self-acceptance, and more effective, empowered living.

Marie also offers Executive Coaching, helping clients develop their leadership skills and confidence in order to maximise their career and business potential.

Marie has a special interest in neuroplasticity and unlocking the power of the mind to change the brain for the better, leading to potentially better mood, relating patterns, peace and joy.  She offers group therapy sessions that always incorporate meditation as a powerful tool for relaxation and changing neural structure.
