About me

I'm a counsellor who brings calm and peacefulness into the chaotic and hectic situations of modern times. I am able to maintain the calm and serenity required when dealing with issues and experiences that could bring painful feelings and overwhelming emotions. I use a Person-Centred approach to counselling. 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. My experience in counselling is mainly with people who have suffered childhood trauma and with issues of addiction. 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.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a qualified Therapeutic Counsellor with 1 year experience with the NHS Counselling Service.

Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic 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.
