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.
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.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
