Who I am
I am a BACP accredited counsellor and psychotherapist. Since I started my training 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 with many issues, including:
Depression, anxiety, self-harm, low self-esteem, loneliness, feeling stuck, abortion or miscarriage.
As an integrative therapist, my work is constantly evolving and adapting, guided by the different experiences with my clients.
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
Loss can trigger many different emotions and reactions depending on the particular circumstances, which are by their nature unique for each person. I will be there for you with whatever you bring into our space.
I am bilingual and can offer sessions in English and Spanish. I have a degree in Fine Arts and this influences my work. I believe that creativity and use of the imagination are ideal channels for reconnecting with our unconscious sides and bringing more parts of ourselves to our awareness.
I am also a proud member of Brent Bereavement Services (BBS), a counselling service in Brent specialising in bereavement and loss.
The 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.
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.
Continuing my professional development
Learning and continuing professional development are really important to me.
One of my most valuable learnings has been related to working in a diverse and transcultural setting like Brent. This has deepened my self-awareness and made me more reflective about the respective beliefs and cultural values, of both me and my clients, related to the nature and purpose of counselling.
I think it is important to reflect that perhaps no one model of counselling will be appropriate for all populations and situations. I am always committed to reflecting on the assumptions that permeate my practice.
