My background is in Arts and Literature. I´m a UKCP accredited Existential Psychotherapist working within an integrative model and with a strong grounding in psychoanalytic theory. I’m fluent in English and a native Spanish speaker.
I've worked with adults from different backgrounds dealing with a wide range of issues, such as depression, loss, bereavement, suicide, sexual, emotional or physical abuse, low self-esteem, anxiety, difficulty in relationships, identity problems and trauma.
My approach consists in exploring together your experience, and how you approach your life, problems and relationships. We are trying to understand the effect those habitual, out of awareness, ways of being and relating to the world, are affecting your life.
It’s a process of dialogue, where by listening to yourself more closely, new understanding of your experience can be brought forth, insight can be achieved and new possibilities encountered.
I like to work with embodiment, dreams, using art and metaphors, but most important of all is that you feel free to use this space in your own way and at your own pace.
Don’t hesitate to contact me for more information or if you would like to book a first meeting to discuss how we can work together.
