About me

The simple, but often rare, experience of being really listened to can have a powerful and transformative effect.

Hello, my name is Juan and I am a counsellor in private practice (London, NW2). It can be a great relief and/or quite unfamiliar to have a space and time in your life focussed on you. It can be intriguing and/or uncomfortable to have your innermost thoughts, feelings, experiences and dreams not just taken seriously but treated with respect, curiosity and confidentiality. In counselling sessions, you can expect to be listened to empathically and non-judgementally. Therapy is a weekly day and time dedicated to you. The consistency and reliability of the therapeutic relationship can help create meaningful change in your life.

In sessions, attention is offered to the uniqueness of you. That means you are welcome in your individual gender, race, culture, sexuality, religion/spirituality and with any disability or diagnosis. You might have specific issues or goals you want to focus on or, you may simply want to gift yourself space and time to experience and make sense of yourself.

Training, qualifications & experience

I hold a Counselling Diploma from Re-vision (Centre for Integrative Transpersonal Counselling and Psychotherapy) and I am a registered member of The British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy.

From Jungian Psychology, I am interested in dreams and what your (sleeping) dreams may offer towards your self-insight and understanding.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
