About me

I am a UKCP accredited psychotherapist, accredited psychosexual and relationship therapist with the College Of Sexual and Relationship Therapists - COSRT (www.cosrt.org.uk) and a cognitive behavioural therapist with membership of the British Association for Cognitive and Behavioural Therapy BABCP (www.BABCP.com) and the Association for Rational Emotive and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy-AREBT (www.REBT.net). I work closely with a consultant psychiatrist for any referral for psychiatric assessment and for prescription of psychiatric and sexual dysfunction medication, only if needed.
I have worked as a psychotherapist in NGOs, the NHS and in private practice for 25 years. I also have 13 years experience working in sexual health and HIV medicine for the NHS.

I was born in Venezuela from French parents and have been in the UK for 30 years. I can therefore offer therapy in English, French and Spanish.

I specialise in three main areas:


  • Depression
  • Anxiety disorders (social anxiety, health anxiety, general anxiety and phobias)
  • Bipolar disorder
  • OCD
  • Anger management problems
  • Body image problems

  • Sexual addiction
  • Relationship issues
  • Alternative sexualities

Further information

I offer research-proven therapy with the aim of obtaining real results. I have successfully treated many clients with OCD, anxiety disorders, depression, sexual problems, addictions and body image problems.
My highly interactive active-directive approach integrates Albert Ellis's Rational Emotive and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy with elements of Steven Hayes's Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and sometimes also mindfulness. I often give behavioural experiments to try out different approaches to face up to your problems so that you obtain true and lasting results from your therapy work.

I am also happy to offer exploratory counselling and self-actualisation coaching.

I offer Skype counselling.

Key details

Wheelchair user access
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.
