About me and my therapy practice
I am a Psychotherapist trained within the Islamic Theoretical model by Stephen Maynard and a Psychosexual Therapist in training at the Tavistock Relationships. At the heart of my way of engaging therapeutically is to provide opportunities to explore our experience of Self from a wide and rich therapeutic spectrum and its relationship with Soul and at the level of the heart. For me, it is about being in a place of “heartfulness” in which Soul and Human attributes come together to dance attuned and in rhythm, in this way uncovering step by step the great potentiality of our Self. It is within the heart, that what we perceive as negative aspects of our self, limitations or negative experiences can become a golden treasure within.
Practice descriptionThrough experience of working with people, I have learnt that heart presence and relating from a place of human acceptance, is the one technique that can offer great transformation, as we all cherish being witnessed and accepted from the truth of our Self. In the therapeutic space, I become a mirror for you to witness yourself and we walk together safely and Trusting to discover and uncover your diverse realities, even those you are not aware of. The therapeutic process, the path you are intending to take, can sometimes be a difficult one, as we tend to have a difficult relationship with truth, but it can be a very rewarding and long lasting one.
I have experience working with children, adolescents and adults and I am passionate about working with an awareness of culture, spiritual, gender and sexual diversity in the provision of mental health services. I am originally from Mexico and my close family is of a mixed and multicultural background. I graduated with a BSc Psychology Counselling and Therapies and I have been a counsellor since 2016. I have experience working with anxiety disorders, depression, PTSD, domestic abuse and violence, sexual abuse and child sexual abuse, abandonment, bereavement, porn and sex compulsion and the struggle between religious/cultural beliefs and gender identification/sexual orientation.
My first session
I usually offer an informal conversation by the phone that eventually leads to a one hour free of charge a clinical assessment to have a better understandingnof the reason why you are coming to therapy and so that you can meet me know better my waybof working, then we can decide if we can and/or would like to work together.
