About me and my therapy practice

You probably are searching for a psychotherapeutic counsellor who you can trust your story in a non-judgemental and safe environment, to explore your past, make sense of the present and find purpose for the future – I am here to walk with you.

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 psychotherapeutic 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. It is essential for you to know, that therapeutic counselling is about you and for you, and I am here to hold a space and walk side-by-side with you as we gently bring into your awareness that aspect of yourself that has been buried in the unconscious, at a pace that feels right and safe for you.

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.
