About me

Sometimes life can be difficult to cope with and saying what’s in our minds can be even harder. You may feel empty, hopeless or even depressed. Counselling can help you to talk about your worries and deal with what is causing your emotional pain. My aim is to offer you a relaxed, warm and non-judgmental space where you feel at ease to talk, and together understand the root of your problems, thereby finding solutions towards a happier life.

My practice:

The modality of my practice is based on Person-Centred approach but I have also trained in Transactional Analysis (TA) and use it on an integrative way. I believe that the individual has the power and autonomy to direct their own life and the counsellor’s role is to facilitate this self-discovery. I have experience in a range of issues including depression, anxiety, trauma, hardship, relationships, loss, grief and other issues. I also have experience in preparing and delivering workshops to bereaved children and teenagers, also one-to-one counselling.

In addition to the above, I can offer therapeutic counselling in fluent Portuguese and conversational Spanish.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
