About me

I help people struggling with addiction, abuse, trauma and attachment issues as part of a level 5 Diploma on Sex and Pornography Addiction. I also work with partners of the affected by this disease.

During our sessions, I help clients to understand the origin and the function of their addiction, the neuroscience behind it, strategies to establish confident recovery and finally to identify positive sexuality.

To achieve this, I use Person-Centred theory which focuses on the client and their needs. It is a gentle approach that works at the client’s pace helping them to find solutions that work for them. This is achieved by facilitating their personal growth by making use of their own strengths and personal identity.

I understand that deciding to see a counsellor can be frightening. To make things easier for you, I offer an initial first session of 30 minutes which is free. You can ask me any questions you have and we can discuss what do you expect to get from this therapy. 

Please rest assured that anything you share during this or any future sessions will remain confidential. If you are interested, give me a call or send me an email and I will contact you back as soon as I can.  

About me

I am originally from Spain. I first became interested in psychology when I worked for a crisis team, supporting people who suffered a bereavement following aviation accidents and incidents of their loved ones. During the 4 years supporting the victims' families, I learnt about trauma, anxiety, depression, stress and bereavement, and applied that knowledge to support my clients and team members through challenging situations.

Once I finished my counselling studies, I worked for an adult community centre in one of the most economically deprived areas of Liverpool. A high percentage of my clients were on probation from prison, had suffered abuse, and struggled with addiction, trauma, attachment wounds and drugs, during their childhood and teenage years.

I also worked in a GP practice where I helped clients with various mental health problems such as bereavement, depression, anxiety, low self-esteem and relationship issues.

I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, the Association for Treatment of Sexual Addiction and the College of Sexual and Relationship Therapists.
