About me

I am a registered Counselling Psychologist. The nature of my practice is mainly humanistic although I implement other techniques as well.

Throughout the therapeutic process I apply Gestalt Therapy methodology which enable us to focus on our immediate thoughts, feelings and behaviour and to better understand the way we relate to others. And the techniques that I implement:  repair scenes and visualizations, relaxation techniques, narrative techniques, projective techniques (paintings), empty chair, dream work,  the Enneagram of personality, etc.

Since I am a psychologist as well I also utilise cognitive behavioural techniques (CBT) included third wave (ACT and Compassion Focused Therapy, CFT). Furthermore I have completed a Mindfulness Course based on Mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) and subsequently I also implement Mindfulness techniques with my clients. Moreover I have trained in EMDR therapy (Part 1 and Part 2), consequently I possess experience in working with trauma.

I am a very compassionate person, supportive and warm who will help you to deal with the difficulties of life.

As I am originally from Spain I offer counselling in Spanish and English. Skype and face to face.

Training, qualifications & experience

I hold a Degree in Psychology, specialising in health psychology and intervention in mental and behavioural disorders

I have post graduate training in a humanistic approach as a Gestalt Therapist. The training involved 710 hours of theory and practice and one year supervision.

I have great experience in private practice and charity sector working with adults, adolescents and couples. I have worked for NHS IAPT services in Waterloo Community Counseling.
