Supervision details

Sometimes words either get in the way or are difficult to find to be able to express the depth of the internal and external dynamics happening within the therapeutic relationship. 

The use of creative art/play media as well as more embodied practices such as the use of breathwork and movement allow you to explore, express, challenge and reflect through the varied elements that occur within and before/after the therapeutic sessions your carry out with your clients.

As a Latin American counsellor, I bring to our sessions my multi-cultural, social justice, spiritual and creative awareness.

The approach I offer is fundamentally person-centred, integrative and holistic and is supported by my studies in psychology, educational psychology, mindfulness and informed by embodied practices from a polyvagal perspective and creative approaches to therapy. 

I have  over 20 years of experience offering emotional support in diverse setting to children and young people both in Ecuador and the UK.

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.
