About me

Have you been feeling lost, worried, lonely, or struggling to meet or maintain relationships? Perhaps it is difficult to find motivation, to keep a job or feel fulfilled with your life. Whatever it is you may be experiencing, I can offer a confidential and warm space for you to explore and discuss anything that may be troubling you. I'm Silvia (she/her), an integrative therapist based in London. I use different approaches to understand and relate with my clients: Person-centred, psychodynamic, Gestalt, Mindfulness and GSRD (Gender, Sex, Relationship Diversity Therapy). Clients are unique, and as such, there is no “one approach or theory” that suits everyone so I work with whatever clients bring to the room, to support them in making sense of their experiences. I understand that past experiences have an important role in individuals’ lives and help my clients so they can make sense of how these past experiences may be affecting their current lives. 

I have a strong commitment to diversity, and I am an LGBTQ+ friendly, trauma informed practitioner. I believe individuals are part of larger communities and play roles in society. Sometimes these are detrimental to their wellbeing. Sometimes people must hide who they really are. I strive to practice from an identity-affirming way, with the understanding that different identities and lived experiences will shape how we experience the world. I provide a non-judgemental space where people feel safe to explore their identities. 

Training, qualifications & experience


I am a qualified BACP registered counsellor with extensive experience in mental health. I have supported individuals with a diverse range of support needs, aspirations and life experiences across different countries and organisations.

I have provided brief & longer therapy, in generic services, bereavement services, counselling for carers, LGBTQ+  services and currently working in a multi-ethnic service working in partnership with IAPT (NHS).

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.

Accredited register membership
