About me

As an integrative psychotherapist, I aim to empower you to build the necessary tools and self-confidence to be able to navigate any difficulties you are encountering.
Whether it is anxiety, depression, grief, poor self-esteem, relationship issues or chronic health concerns I am here to provide a safe and non-judgemental therapeutic space, where you feel comfortable to reflect on your concerns and have a deeper understanding of what is going on within you.

I work with integrating different therapeutic models such as humanistic, psychodynamic, CBT  and existential therapies. I also believe that using a holistic approach in considering mind and body is key to living a balanced and healthy life.

Finding the right therapist is paramount, so I offer a free 15 minute telephone consultation where you can discuss your current difficulties, concerns for coming to therapy and whether we can work a way in building a therapeutic relationship.
I provide short term and long term therapy sessions for adults.
I am currently based in London Bridge at a walking distance from the underground station. Bus routes available (35, 133, 343, 333).

Training, qualifications & experience

I have eight years of experience in working within the NHS, private inpatient care and charity sector.
I have worked in an IAPT service at the Maudsley Hospital NHS, where I worked therapeutically with a wide range of individuals from different cultural backgrounds and presenting with various psychological stressors.

During my training as a psychotherapist, I also worked for LAPIS (London Accessible Psychotherapy Independent Service) an independent charity service aimed to support and offer accessible service to individuals with chronic health conditions or disabilities as well as support their carers/family members.

In the last six years, I have also worked for Nightingale Hospital, a leading private mental health hospital in the UK for inpatient psychiatric care.

Member organisations

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.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

Languages offered

I also offer sessions in Spanish.
