I offer Counselling, Psychotherapy and Therapeutic Coaching and House Therapy.

Specialities: Counselling, Psychotherapy and Therapeutic Coaching and House Therapy.

I qualified as a psychotherapist from the University of Sussex nearly 20 years ago, having gained a BSc (Honours) degree in Psychology in the late 1990s. My previous career was as a translator/interpreter and in research departments in Higher Education. My work is underpinned by the psychodynamic (Freudian) approach which helps clients to understand problems by increasing their awareness of how past relationships may be influencing their present issues such anxiety, generalised anxiety disorder, relationships, depression and many other personal difficulties.

I provide a multilingual counselling and psychotherapy service in English, French, Spanish and Portuguese or a combination of these with bilingual clients. Clients are able to express their concerns in their first language which enhances the quality of the therapeutic work and leads to more effective outcomes.

I also combine psychotherapy with life coaching skills for short-term, solution focused work with clients wishing to manage their phobias, panic disorders, accumulation of unwanted objects (hoarding/clutter), and many other conditions.
