Discover Magickal Ways to Ditch the Black Dog of Depression

Maria Gaian

I’m Maria Gaian.

Founder of Ditch the Black Dog, a metaphysical coaching and therapy service helping people looking for alternative ways to manage depression.

I understand how it feels to be depressed. I’m a neurodivergent abuse survivor who’s suffered from depression, anxiety and complex post traumatic stress for over 50 years.

I tried medication, therapy and counselling, and they worked for a while, but they didn’t help me long term.

Everything changed when I discovered ways to manage depression that were so transformational they felt like magick!


I don’t believe in endless talk therapy (click here to find out why) and I certainly don’t believe that everyone* needs to rely on zombifying medication to feel better.

(*If it works for you, keep at it! No judgement here. But if it makes you feel dead inside, I’m here to show you some alternatives. I’m here to support you either way.)

I believe there’s a better way and I’d love to share it with you. 

Ditch the Black Dog stands at the crossroads where modern therapy techniques merge with the ancient healing power of witchcraft.

Sounds ‘woo woo’ doesn’t it, but my methods can work like a charm!

Through my magickal sacred circles, retreats, and programs, (online and here in Spain) my clients learn how to manage the black dog of depression so they can feel healthy, happy and whole. 

Want to get started? Here’s how you can take the next step towards ditching the lack dog of depression.
