About me and my therapy practice

Do you feel that your life has been dominated by your worries and fears of the future? Are there unresolved issues or painful experiences from the past or in the present moment that overwhelms and cause you anxiety? Do you find it difficult to feel confident and good about yourself? If your answer to these questions is yes, my approach to therapy will be of benefit to you.

Everyone goes through difficult challenges in life. Some of the challenges are very hard to face alone, it is in such times that is valuable to seek extra support from someone who can help you explore deeper the causes of those hardships. Therapy will give you long-term benefits and the tools you need to overcome whatever difficulties you encounter.

You are already breaking the stigma and resistance to seeking help and support by reading my profile. Exercising your will and deciding to search for psycho-therapeutic counselling is not easy. As you continue reading, you already are creating a sense of relationship with me.

 I can assure you of a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space where we can both identify, honour and explore the possible reasons for your struggles that blocks you to feel freer and confident about yourself. Whatever you are thinking or feeling right now is a normal part of this whole process that we can explore together at our initial session so you can decide if what I offer feels right for the issues that you want to work with. 

I have a variety of experience in working with people from various cultural, professional and religious background having lived, studied and worked in the Philippines, United States, Canada, Mexico, and Italy and now in London. My experience working in HM Prison Service and NHS has enriched my skills. Aside from English, I can communicate in Filipino, Spanish, Italian and a limited working proficiency in Portuguese.

Practice description

My focus is on helping you understand and come to terms with challenges in your life. I am committed to providing a safe, confidential, and non-judgemental space to explore your past, make sense of the present, and find a purpose for the future. We will both aim to gently explore the possible reasons for your struggles at a pace that feels safe and right for you and I will help you grow in all areas of your life.

Whether you are just looking for guidance through difficult situations or you are looking to empower yourself and head in a new direction in life, I can help you achieve your goals.
