Women often tell us that they feel alone, frightened, unsafe.
If this sounds like you, it may be that you have had an experience of abuse or violence in your past.
It may be that you feel unequal or unheard as a woman in your home, in your community, or at work.
Whatever brings you to The Maya Centre, we can offer you a safe women-only space to talk in confidence about your life and your relationships. Our qualified and experienced counsellors are trained to listen to you carefully, to help you understand what has happened to you and to find ways of being in the world that make you feel more confident and fulfilled as a woman.
At the Maya Centre, we believe in a holistic approach to women’s mental health and wellbeing – helping you to recover from trauma or abuse, and to rebuild build your resilience, confidence and support networks.
With this in mind, we offer a range of support depending on your needs and interests. You can go straight onto our waiting list for Counselling, you may prefer to start with some Education around women’s mental health, or perhaps simply finding support for your everyday Wellbeing is important right now.

At The Maya Centre, we see education and knowledge as the keys to women’s recovery. Learning about women’s mental health, what affects or harms you and how counselling can help, means that you have more voice, choice and control over your own life – and can help shape the community around you too.
Our educational activities include both Psychoeducation, where you can learn more about how counselling for women works, and our Women’s Forum, where you can take your learning and use it to help us improve our services, reach new women and inform the wider public.
Looking after yourself is the most important part of your life as a woman and the Women’s Hub is here to support you on your recovery journey from depression or trauma. We provide activities designed by you, that can prevent women from sliding into unhealthy habits or relationships.
We will help you to rebuild your confidence, develop new skills, discover your voice, and join a social support network of friendly women. We focus on upward social mobility, empowering women to become leaders in their community.
The Women’s Hub caters to the wellbeing needs of the diverse communities of women in Islington, and is suitable for women who have received counselling, those thinking about, or waiting for counselling, and for those who simply want to meet other women in a safe space.
All of our activities are free, with light refreshments provided.
We can reimburse your travel costs for a limited time only.
