About me

I am a BACP Accredited and experienced counsellor and have 12 years practice in counselling individuals and couples in English and Spanish for a range of issues such as relationships, anxiety, addictions, anger, depression and separation.

I provide you with a private and safe space where we can talk about your difficulties, from coping with traumatic events to dealing with anxiety, stress and depression, or managing thoughts, behaviours or a relationship.

I am a qualified intercultural integrative counsellor. Being integrative means I use several theoretical approaches depending on your goals and needs. Being intercultural means I take into account the impact of living in a different culture, belonging to mixed backgrounds and also coming from a different background to my own. I am a Spaniard brought up in Australia living in London, so I have personal experience of this. As I am a fluent Spanish speaker, I also work in Spanish.

The main approaches I use are:

-  Psychodynamic: we look at how current issues are influenced by past experiences.
-  Person-centred: we look at the difficulties you are having in your life at present.
-  CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy): I use more practical techniques to tackle issues such as depression and anxiety.
-  Transactional Analysis: we look at any issues you feel you have in your communication with others.
- Dreamwork: we look at your emotions at a more unconscious level.
- Mindfulness: I teach you techniques that help with anxiety, stress and worry.
- The Rewind Technique: for traumatic events.


I am specialised in:

- Anxiety: I use a combination technique from CBT and Mindfulness.

-  Addictions. I have worked for Drug and Alcohol Services for 6 years from a busy GP surgery in South West London and have also supported people with other addictions, like gambling.

-  Illness diagnosis. I have worked mostly with HIV from a London wide charity for gay men. Alongside this work I completed the Level 2 Certificate in Health Work.

-  Depression leading to suicidal thoughts and feelings. I am a trained Samaritans Counsellor and worked with Samaritans for over a year.

- Eating Disorders. I have worked mainly with young female clients in my private practice.

-  Counselling Supervisor. For over 2 years I worked for a world wide charity that offers counselling to Spanish speakers and for 2 years I have been supervising counselling students in my practice.

- I am on the therapy's directory of Quitza, the world's first social smoking cessation network. Are you trying to quit smoking or have you recently quit, but feel you need some peer or professional support? Click on this link https://quitza.com for more information.

I am a Registered and Accredited member of BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy) and adhere to its strict ethical framework and code of practice.
