About Me

Hello! I am a psychologist registered with the British Psychological Society.I enjoy helping people in their desire to close the gap between where they are right now and where they want to be in the future.

I am passionate about counselling,I have experienced and witnessed the many benefits that talking to an experienced counsellor can bring.I have a foundation in different therapies but I work from a PERSON CENTERED approach.

I will help you to realise what resources and support are available to you that you can use to work through your own issues, build your self-confidence and appreciate that you always have options.I will treat you as the expert on yourself, as no-one else knows exactly what it’s like to be you.

I will not judge you, no matter what you bring to the session. This helps build a trustworthy relationship in which you can feel free and supported to disclose whatever is troubling you. Eventually it will lead you to discover your own abilities and autonomy, so that you can cope with current and future problems.

My Experience

My practice is focused on listening and creating a space for exploring, understanding and help.I have trained as a psychologist in Argentina for 5 years and I am accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS). My training included different kinds of therapy, research,working in placements in the community,reflective practice and personal therapy. I have been working with adults in public mental health/community settings and in the charity and private sectors for just over ten years.

My Approach

I am a humanistic counsellor.I offer person centered therapy which is opposite to the traditional medical model of therapist as expert and moved instead toward a non-directive,emphatic approach that empowers and motivates you in the therapeutic process.
