Hello and welcome to my profile.

My mission is to empower individuals reach their full potential by facilitating the process towards self-awareness and inner wellbeing.

All the experiences we encountered since childhood have shaped our beliefs system and play a big part in the way we relate to others and ourselves. Counselling offers the opportunity to review unhelpful thinking patterns while holding a space where you can find your own narrative and give meaning to your struggles. Counselling is a process that facilitates inner discoveries and enhance self-awareness. Counselling can be of invaluable support in getting in touch with inner needs, wants and desires.

I am a MBACP registered Counsellor specialised in Trauma work. I belong to the accredited register recognised by the Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care.

I possess more than 23 years of working experience throughout a variety of settings such as NHS, MIND, Drugs and Alcohol for London, Carers Centre as well as EAP and Universities.

Within my professional practice I always demonstrate sensitivity to individual differences when working with clients of diverse ethnicity, gender, religion, sexual orientation and cultural background, treating all people with unconditional positive regards and respect.

I use an integrative approach to therapy bringing different tools at different times according to your specific needs and preferences.

Counselling work is about exploring any issues you want to offload in a safe an confidential space where there is no pressure to perform or to meet external demands.

The first session aim to explore what your current needs and desired therapeutic goals are, as well as giving you a confidential space to talk about anything that is a concern for you.
