About me and my therapy practice

When life becomes difficult, speaking to someone can help you make sense of things. Everyone is capable of growth and healing and sometimes our way forward becomes lost or unclear. You may benefit from some support and space to process your thoughts and feelings.

If you are struggling, I will help you move your life in the direction you want. Being in therapy with me provides a safe, supportive and confidential environment for you to heal and grow.

In the supportive environment I provide, you can expect:

  • empathy
  • warmth
  • no judgement
  • potency
  • professionalism

I can help if you are struggling with depression; anxiety; loss; stress; relationship issues; sex, gender and LGBT+ issues; and other problems, including those which are not yet clear to you yet.

About me

I am a fully qualified humanistic psychotherapeutic counsellor working online, with experience working holistically with a wide variety of issues. I work using an integrative humanistic modality, meaning I use my skills to draw on a number of theoretical styles to ensure we work together in a way that makes sense for you as an individual.

I have worked with the mental health charity, Mind and now have an online private practice, working with clients in the UK and abroad. I am based in Zaragoza, Spain and have experiences living outside of the UK.

I am in further training as a psychotherapist at the Metanoia Institute in London, one of the UK leading providers of psychotherapy and counselling training.

Practice description

I work with people to explore issues from the past that can sometimes be a blueprint for how they live today. I work relationally, which means the relationship we build between us can be an important part of the therapeutic work. I will help you develop self-understanding to live in a way that feels authentic for you.

In our therapy, with time, you will:

  • gain insights that develop your understanding of yourself
  • find what motivates and drives you
  • develop insight into the choices you make
  • learn to see and relate to others in a new way
  • advance how you can empower yourself

My first session

Our initial session will be to see how we could work together and for us to talk about what is bringing you to therapy at this time. This session is no-obligation and a two way process where we need to see if we could be a good fit to work together. I really respect that finding the right therapist is important and not always an easy part of the journey.

I work using Zoom, a secure online video calling service. I will send you clear instructions on how to use the free programme before our first session.

My initial session fee is £20 and last 60 minutes. 

I also offer a free 15 minute phone call before the initial session for you to ask any questions you may have and to tell me a little about what brings you to therapy.
