About me

We cannot change people, we can only change ourselves, and in so doing, people start changing around us. I strongly believe that positive relationships are key to growth and well-being.

I provide a safe, non judgemental and confidential space for people to address their issues, be it relationship problems, trust, stress, anxiety, depression, ill health, loss, loss of desire, low self worth and more.

After years of work at Relate, I started my private practice in York 3 years ago, and now have over 10,000 contact hours seeing individuals, couples and young people. I am confident I deliver a service that works.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I trained at Relate, and am a qualified Relationship and Young People Counsellor – incorporating systemic and psychodynamic approaches, as well as adding art and narrative therapy techniques into the mix. With over 10 years work experience, I have a proven track record of gaining positive results. I also completed a Masters by Research in “Interactive Narratives as a Tool for Change”, as well as having studied Psychology in Argentina. I am bilingual in English and Spanish and offer Face to Face as well as Webcam counselling

Member organisations


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.

Additional information

I recognise that finding the right counsellor is key to achieving the outcome you would like. Therefore, I offer a free initial consultation. This is an opportunity for you to meet me and decide if you would like to work together (please note these free consultations are available in the morning and last 30').

Thereafter, each 50' session is £45.- and can be paid in advance by BACS or Paypal. Cancellations need to be done 24 hrs prior to the appointment.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

Free on street parking, ten minute walk along the river from York City Centre
