I am a counsellor/psychotherapist. I have more than 10 years of experience working with individuals as well as couples.
I work in English, French and Spanish (not as fluent as English and French).
In addition, I work with various organisations such as a Refugee Centre.
I became a counsellor/psychotherapist in 2003.
I work in Psychosynthesis, a transpersonal model that gives me an in-depth understanding of who we are as human beings, and enables me to guide clients on their journeys.
My field of expertise includes: bereavement; problems of identity; relationship issues; health problems such as strokes and long-term illnesses; trauma; career changes and any personal issues.
I hold the Postgraduate Diploma in Psychosynthesis Counselling awarded by University of East London and I am fully BACP accredited.
Apart from Psychosynthesis as a core modality, I undertook the following additional training: Body Work at Chiron; The Hoffman Institute (including Body, Intellect, Emotions and Spirit); Biosynthesis (Somatic and depth-psychology); Mindfullness; Couple Therapy; Psychosynthesis Somatic Awareness and Trauma; Anxiety Disorders. I'm also currently researching the Conscious and Unconscious.
I work under the BACP Code of Ethics. I offer long term and short term therapy with flexible times - morning, afternoon or evening appointments, Monday to Friday.
I guide clients and help them understand and solve problems such as day-to-day difficulties or life crisis. I work towards bringing clarity, exploring thought patterns, positive and/or negative beliefs and support them in their search for the right actions and decisions.
My work methods include: talking; guided imagery; drawing; experiential techniques; using small stones; chair work.

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.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
