About me and my therapy practice

I qualified in 1998 as a Clinical Psychologist abroad, working in different countries including at the WHO in Geneva. However, I no longer in the UK as a Clinical Psychologist. I have trained and qualified in the UK as an Integrative Counsellor. 

In my journey, I have worked for a period of 10 years in the NHS Mental Health Services in East Anglia, with clients presenting with severe and enduring mental health difficulties (psychotic spectrum and personality disorders) and in the primary care (clients suffering from depression and anxiety) in The Wellbeing Service.

My experience has led me to work with different types of therapies from psychodynamic to cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) leading me to where I am now.

I now work as an Integrative Counsellor who integrates different theories (person-centred, psychodynamic, and cognitive behavioural therapy).

I qualified through Middlesex University-Matrix College of Counselling and Psychotherapy Dip Integrative Counselling.

Outside my work, I love to spend time with my pets, and with my family.

Practice description

Stresscatcher is a counselling service that provides relational integrative counselling to all adults who need it.

Integrative counselling is a form of counselling that combines three types of counselling: Person-Centred, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Psychodynamic in balanced and perfect harmony.

This counselling is also relational counselling. Meaning that our relationship within the counselling is very important and essential for the development of the issues that bring you into counselling.

Hopefully learning how to relate in this new way will help with some reparation of the difficulties that bring you into counselling.

I believe as Carl Rogers suggests that the counsellor should have unconditional positive regard for his client, be authentic and empathic. I also agree with Bowlby when he suggests that we develop relationships from early on in our lives and that these determine how we relate later on in our lives too.

When people start counselling it is very frequent because of feeling anxiety or depression, so CBT strategies are very helpful to understand how our thoughts, feelings and behaviours all link together.

When working with traumatised people, I believe it is important to feel safe first in yourself and in your environment. I use CBT strategies for that and grounding techniques. It is also important to make a narrative of the trauma and to be able to mourn for what could have been. Eventually, it is important to look into the future and create a new reality past that trauma. In summary that is how I work with Herman’s three-stage trauma model proposes.

My first session

In my first session, we discuss the reasons that have brought you to counselling, what a contract with me would look like, the importance of confidentiality and risk management. 

I am offering a 30-minute free phone call before your first paid session, so we can get to know each other a little bit and find out if we could work together.
