My approach consists in exploring together your experience, and how you approach your life, problems and relationships. We are trying to understand the effect those habitual, out of awareness, ways of being and relating to the world, are affecting your current life.
It’s a process of dialogue, where by listening to yourself more closely, new understanding of your experience can be brought forth, insight can be achieved and new possibilities encountered.
I like to work with embodiment, dreams, using art and metaphors, but most important of all is that you feel free to use this space in your own way and at your own pace.
My background is in Arts and Literature. I´m a UKCP accredited Existential Psychotherapist working within an integrative model and with a strong grounding in psychoanalytic theory. I offer therapy in English and Spanish.
I've worked with adults from different backgrounds dealing with a wide range of issues, such as depression, loss, bereavement, suicidal thoughts, sexual, emotional or physical abuse, low self-esteem, anxiety, difficulty in relationships, identity problems and trauma. My clinical experience is in the NHS, higher education and charity sector such as the Wimbledon Guild and Mind.
I was granted a Postgraduate Diploma in Psychotherapy and Counselling and an Advanced Diploma in Existential Psychotherapy at Regent's University, London. At the same time, completed training in Dynamic Interpersonal Therapy (DIT) at the Anna Freud Centre.
Recently, completed a MSc in Psychodynamics of Human Development at Birkbeck University and a Diploma in Psychotherapy & Community at the Philadelphia Association.
Like all UKCP registered psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors I can work with a wide range of issues, but here are some areas in which I have a special interest or additional experience.
