How I work

People often hesitate before they come to see a counsellor and this can be for many reasons. Sometimes they feel apprehensive about sharing very personal information with a stranger, unsure about what will happen and wondering if anything can really help?

This is why it is important to take some time at a free initial session to decide whether or not we feel that we can work together. If we do, then, at the end of that first session, we can agree how and when we will begin. I believe that it is important to remember that you are not alone, this is a shared journey and we need to choose our companions carefully.

From my experience of working with many different clients over the years, I know that it is important to recognise that each person is unique and if they have identified themselves as being depressed of stressed or anxious - this is an individual experience. My role is to journey alongside them, creating a confidential, safe and trustworthy space where they feel able, in their own time, to look at and discuss the issues that arise. You may be surprised to know that I have worked with some clients where a sense of humour and shared laughter was what they needed and what helped them.

About Me I am a qualified and experienced person centred counsellor, accredited by the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I offer counselling to individuals and couples, both in Spanish and English and work as a supervisor to other counsellors. My experience includes working with people who are stressed, depressed, anxious, feeling grief from bereavement and loss, worrying about relationship issues, suffering from addiction and those who have infertility problems. I also work with people who describe spiritual problems, most often these are not related to religious beliefs, rather they feel lost or that they have no sense of purpose.
