About me

I am a counsellor/psychotherapist, a graduate psychologist and a counselling tutor. I work with children, young people, adults, couples and families.

I abide by the ethical framework of the BACP (British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists) and of the code of ethics of BPS (British Psychological Society) and AFT (Association for Family Therapy and Systemic Practice), which means that I am committed to continual professional development and regular supervision to ensure I can offer excellence in my practice. I am a Registered  Member of the British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists (MBACP), a graduate member of the British Psychological Society (MBPsS) and a member of AFT.

My approach integrates Psychodynamic theory and Systemic therapy, including Narrative therapy, when working with relationship problems (couple, family, friends, at work, etc.). I also practice eclecticism when working with a wide range of issues as I select different approaches according to clients's needs, incorporating principles from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness and Humanistic. To me, counselling and psychotherapy mainly involve actively listening, understanding and accepting clients in order to enhance their well-being and to help them make effective changes in their lives.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a BSc (Hons) in Philosophy and Educational Science from the University of Salamanca (Spain) and a BSc (Hons) in Psychology from ARU (Cambridge, UK).
I have a Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling from Hills Road Sixth Form College (Cambridge, UK).
I have Postgraduate Diploma in Relationship Therapy (Relate Institute). Currently studying last year of MA in Relationship Therapy (Relate Institute, validated by University of Hull).

I have worked in mainstream and specialist schools, supporting, teaching and tutoring children and young people. I have been involved with local charities and organisations such as Lifecraft as a Lifeline volunteer, Centre 33 and Wintercomfort where I worked as a counsellor/psychotherapist, and with Blue Smile where I have been a therapeutic mentor. I have, in the past, been employed by Cambridgeshire County Council as part of a team dedicated to the inclusion of children with physical, behavioural and learning difficulties in the community.

Currently I am teaching Level 2 Certificate in Counselling Skills and Level 3 Certificate in Counselling Skills at Hills Road Sixth Form College in Cambridge.

At present, I am working at Relate Cambridge as a counsellor/psychotherapist working with individuals, couples and families.
