Integrative Psychotherapist and Mindfulness Teacher
Speciality: Women, couples, young adults, teens, dating, anxiety, depression, separation/divorce.
I am an experienced integrative therapist and mindfulness teacher (this means I use a variety of different therapeutic approaches from humanistic and behavioural schools and I'm also trained in mindfulness). I offer an initial free 30 min zoom consultation.
I can help you with anxiety, relationships, dating, addictive disorders, OCD, depression, separation and trauma. I use a variety of approaches, Mindfulness, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Attachment, Narrative Therapy and Solution Focused Therapy. I’m also well-grounded in psychodynamic approaches. I will choose the therapy best suited to your needs. I work best when we make a therapeutic time-oriented plan. I love working with a brief therapy model. We can work on a specific problem or embark on a longer life-transforming journey. I love neuroscience developments and I closely follow the work of Professor Dan Siegel's Neuroscience and Meditation Lab (Mindful Awareness Research Center UCLA). I see myself as a mindful therapist, I meditate daily since 2006 and I apply mindfulness principles in my daily life. I can truly testify that it has transformed my life and changed how my brain works.
I am passionate about assisting you to lead a fulfilling and meaningful life and to form meaningful connections. I can help you address any issues not just as a professional, but as a person with rich and varied life experience in a kind, warm and non judgmental space. I draw on my extensive life experience, which involved growing up in different countries, divorce, overcoming an addiction to anti-anxiety medications as well as living in the USA as an adult. Often seemingly small changes can impact your entire life. While change may feel overwhelming or impossible, together we will walk this path that will lead to a joyful life experience. Your therapy process does not have to last forever; results can come quicker than you think. I'm registered with BPS AND 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.
