About me

Don’t let trauma drive your relationships in life, they will take you down a beaten track, instead become a conscious driver and set your destination to healthy and happy relationships where you can be your true self and grow.

When thinking about relationships, most people seem to overlook the fact that our traumas inform how we relate to other people, this means that any trauma that hasn’t been processed and healed, will be determining what kind of person comes into your life, which ones stay and which ones leave. 

At a practical level these traumas show up in day-to-day interactions with others in countless and often subtle ways, below are just a few different examples, not all would apply simultaneously to everyone, but sometimes a few may overlap: 

  • Having a short fuse or uncontrollable anger
  • Jumping straight into blaming or criticising yourself or others 
  • Being passive aggressive or controlling of others
  • Being constantly worried about how others may perceive us (sometimes camouflaged as perfectionism), therefore creating an endless cycle of anxiety and often leading to depression
  • Feeling numb or emotionally distant from others 
  • Putting up huge defensive walls or acting theatrically so people can’t ever get to know the real you

Some people enter unhealthy relationships which are trauma bonded where one person becomes the victim, feeling like they are stuck in one toxic relationship after another, if you find yourself in this dynamic you must take the first step by acknowledging the pattern, once you do that you can start to unpack the traumas that are driving that relationship.

If any of the above have resonated with you, I can help you spot all of your trauma-led relationship patterns, and guide you so you can process your traumas and heal them to be able to love all of you. Therefore as a knock-on effect, healing the dynamic with those you already love and/or attract the right person into your life so you can live in harmonious relationships that have realistic patterns of behaviour in their dynamic.

"Disclaimer: Because I only work online, I can only help you with any kind of trauma that is either old (which means that you are not in a physical place/environment that poses a physical threat to you) or I can also help you with vicarious/secondary trauma through films & media consumption, etc."

About me:

I was born in Spain but I’ve called the UK home for 14 years, which is where I began my journey as a counsellor and later specialised in Relationships Counselling. I am a trauma-informed practitioner which means that I will share with you all the tools and give you the supportive environment that you need to heal from trauma.

I chose to become a counsellor because as they say in this profession "we are all wounded healers", trauma began early for me, but life teaches you to be humble and help others when they most need it. Because when you grow up without any emotional support, you wish there was that one person who would listen to you without any judgement, and was with you every step of the way until you felt ready to make it on your own. That is precisely the journey I would like to accompany you in.

My Vision

A world united by respect, compassion and understanding without prejudice.

My Mission

My mission is to raise awareness of realistic & helpful narratives different to those passed down throughout generations in society, so people can become more understanding of others and learn to love themselves and others putting aside our differences to become a balanced and more united society.

My Values

Let’s all be upstanders 

Together we make a difference

Mental health = Body health
