About me

My approach  to Therapy

I have trained as an integrative psychotherapist completing the last year of my master’s degree in existential-phenomenological psychotherapy. In my approach to therapy, I look to explore the struggles that my clients are facing, the way they are creating and living their lives and their relationships, and how the personal choices they have made are currently affecting them. In this process, my clients make sense of their lived experiences, find meaning, and elucidate what aspects of their life they want to change. 

I work primarily from an existential perspective however, I use cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), psychodynamic and person-centred approaches whenever I realise that they could be beneficial to my clients. In addition to this, I work relationally as I believe that understanding our relationship dynamics is crucial to make sense of how we relate to ourselves and others, and I place a strong emphasis on the therapeutic relationship as a vehicle which facilitates change, healing, and personal growth.

My therapy orientation is suitable for working with all aspects of human experience, from broader issues, such as lack of meaning in life and relationship difficulties, to more specific issues, such as anxiety, depression, trauma, grief, obsessive behaviours, and addictions.

I understand psychotherapy as a transformational process that facilitates change and enables the possibility to come out of the place you have been temporarily stuck in. This process may be difficult at times but also a great opportunity for growth, relief and ultimately, healing. 

How I Can Help You.

I believe that the key element for a successful and meaningful therapy is a caring and trusting therapeutic relationship. I offer a confidential and non-judgmental space where you can feel safe  to open up and share the issues that you are facing. My way of working is gentle but challenging which means that I will listen and respond with acceptance and compassion to support you to get a deeper understanding of your struggles and guide you to discover what aspects of your life you might want to bring about change and to facilitate your personal growth.

I am deeply dedicated to supporting you to achieve your therapeutic goals, gain self-awareness, coping strategies and to facilitate change that translate into daily life improvements.

What to Expect in Your First Session.

At the first session we will discuss what brings you to therapy and what your goals, hopes, and expectations are. We will explore how we will be working together and what you can expect from the therapeutic process. 

Starting therapy can be emotionally challenging but also exciting and deeply rewarding. If you feel overwhelmed about taking the first step, please contact me so we can discuss it, start to know one another, resolve your doubts and find the way to make it easier for you to begin your therapeutic journey.

Training, qualifications & experience


MA Psychology, MSc Clinical and Health Psychology, PGDip Integrative Psychotherapy and MA in Psychotherapy and Counselling, MBACP

I am a highly qualified psychotherapist with extensive experience in the mental health field. My training began at a young age with a master's degree in psychology where I developed a deep understanding of the complexity of mental processes, human behaviour, and emotions. I then went on to expand my knowledge by completing a master's degree in clinical psychology where I fulfilled an honorary placement at the psychiatry department of a renowned hospital, and I received specialised training in evidence-based therapies such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). I moved to the UK and completed my education with a post graduate diploma in integrative psychotherapy and counselling (covering psychodynamic, humanistic, and existential approaches) and a master’s degree in existential phenomenological psychotherapy, both at Regents University London.


Throughout my career, I have worked for the charity sector (most recently for MIND, the nationwide mental health charity) and the NHS, as well as, in private practice. I have worked with a very diverse range of individuals with moderate to severe mental health difficulties such as, trauma, abuse, addictions, long term health conditions, bereavement, and grief.

I have lived and worked in several countries on 3 different continents. This experience has allowed me to connect with people from different backgrounds, ages and cultures making me appreciate cultural diversity, values, beliefs, and lifestyles with great respect. I also have a broad experience in supporting clients to explore cross-cultural differences and overcoming its challenges when moving to a new country.

I provide therapy services in both English and Spanish.

Member organisations

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.
