About me and my therapy practice

At times we have the intuition that we consist of two persons in opposition to one another. This conflict may be between a part of ourselves that wants to move on and another one that is holding us back. 

I offer you a supportive relationship that you can use to give those two parts a voice without judgement, and explore ways to reach a reconciliation. 

I have experience with different issues, including:

Loss, depression, anxiety, bereavement, memories of abuse, search of meaning, feelings of emptiness, being stuck, low self-esteem, loneliness, abortion or miscarriage.

In my practice I have worked closely with problems around loss. This could be of a loved one, a job, a relationship or something else irreplaceable. I also have experience of the challenges faced by people arriving in the UK for the first time, and how this can trigger a sense of alienation and loss of family and friends.

I am bilingual and can offer sessions in English and Spanish. I also believe that creativity and use of the imagination are ideal channels for reconnecting with our unconscious side and bringing more parts of ourselves to our awareness. I am very interested in the exploration of dreams.

I am currently working face to face in a warm and welcoming room half a minute walk from Herne Hill station.  I also use platforms such as Zoom, Skype and FaceTime or can work over the phone, if that seems a better option for you. It is important that you find a medium that you feel comfortable with.

I charge £50 per face to face session and £40 for online and phone sessions. 

I offer an initial FREE 30 minute online or phone session where we can discuss your specific needs and you can evaluate how it would feel working with me.

If there is any further information I can provide about me or my way of working,  please let me know. I will be happy to answer.

Practice description

I like to discuss with my clients the way they feel they want to work. There is no rigid agenda. Goals and approaches are talked over during the sessions. Sometimes they can be redefined as the needs change or the work evolves.

I find it important to follow the client's lead and stay always by their side, I am a true believer in the client's inner wisdom. However, I am happy to provide a more directive and structured method when clients wish.

As an integrative counsellor, I believe that the only framework that truly works is the one which is fluid enough to adapt to the client’s personal circumstances and needs. 

I am also a Spanish speaker so I can alternatively provide therapy in this language.

My first session

The first session is the moment to get to know each other and gives you an opportunity to talk about the reasons that brought you to counselling. You may want to use this session to ask questions about me, how I work or to express what goals you would like to achieve during our time working together.

The first session is also an opportunity for you to develop opinions about it would be to work with me

This session is exploratory for both of us. It is also about us finding out if we can work together.

If you would like to know more about my approach, please do get in contact.
