About me

I'm a fully qualified person-centred counsellor with experience in working with people who have suffered childhood trauma and with issues of addiction. 

I am able to maintain the calm and serenity required when dealing with issues and experiences that could bring painful feelings and overwhelming emotions. Such issues as depression, anxiety, alcohol use, drug abuse, men's issues, relationship issues, low self-esteem and stress.

As a counsellor, I bring clarity and peacefulness into the chaotic and hectic situations of modern times. I use a Person-Centred approach to counselling, and I believe that everyone has the innate ability to resolve their psycho-emotional issues and decide on the best direction to take in order to live a happy and fulfilling life. I can create the right environment so that each individual can explore the best way to achieve this for themselves.

I was born in Colombia. I am bilingual with Spanish being my second language. This gives me the advantage of being able to provide counselling in both English and Spanish.

I can delve deeply into a person’s narrative in order for them to bring out and identify their fears and emotions, so that they can deal with them in a healthy and secure environment. I've learnt that when these fears and emotions are identified, it is then easier to work towards a resolution.

I specialise in Person-Centred counselling. I'm a qualified counsellor registered with the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy.

Member organisations


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.
