About me and my therapy practice

Counselling can be a great source of relief and comfort and help us through the tough times. Often we emerge calmer, more confident, more resilient, because having someone there who understands, listens and does not judge is very powerful and can result in change on a huge scale. I really believe that we all need someone to talk to from time to time.  

I work in an integrative way. This means that I draw on various therapeutic approaches and strategies in order to adapt to you as an individual. I incorporate CBT techniques in my therapy where appropriate and I am a qualified life coach. I can conduct sessions in Spanish if this is a requirement.
