About me

Hello, I’m Letticia. I am an integrative psychotherapist, registered with the UKCP. I am also in the process of completing a doctorate in counselling psychology and psychotherapy. I take a genuine interest in people, and bring care and sensitivity to my work.

At times, everyday life can feel too difficult to cope with, or we may feel stuck.  At certain moments we may be faced with a crisis or loss. Therapy is a confidential, non-judgemental space where you can express your thoughts and feelings. Talking about an issue can help us process complex emotions, make sense of experiences, and find new energy, meaning and purpose in life.

It can take courage to decide to come to therapy and talk to someone about your current difficulties, and you may feel nervous. Getting to know each other and building a strong relationship is important to me as a start, and a way for you to feel safe, so we can explore what you want to understand and change. On this journey, we would take a collaborative and compassionate approach to the exploration of your experience.

Training, qualifications & experience

The breadth and depth of my training enables me to think about what you are struggling with from a range of perspectives, so I can best support and empower you. These include humanistic, psychodynamic, and cognitive behavioural approaches.

I have 8 years of experience working with people from a diverse range of backgrounds who have faced different difficulties in life, which may lead to disconnection to a person’s authentic sense of self. My specialist interest is gender and I have 7 years of experience working with non-binary and transgender people, including at CliniQ. My doctoral research is on the menstrual cycle in psychotherapy.  

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP)

The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.

As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.

UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
