My Psychotherapy Service offers a professional, confidential and safe environment, to explore personal issues and situations under a different light and approach to increase the general sense of wellbeing. I chose this work because it is where my heart and passion are. It is not a 'job', it is my vocation. My forthcoming and caring personality allows me to naturally engage and my experience and flexibility enables me to adapt to the uniqueness of my client. Now, a bit about my background and experience. My interest in Psychology and Philosophy runs in me since my teens. I am a graduated Philologist by University of Salamanca. I worked as a teacher and tutor in secondary school in Kent. I took an amazing Masters Degree in Mysticism at the University of Canterbury, not surprisingly with a high content in Psychology. Following the vocation of the healing practice, I embarked in a comprehensive and indeed transformative training in Psychosynthesis, getting my Post-Graduate Diploma in Counselling in 2011, since then working uninterruptedly to the present. Along side with my studies I took care of my unquenchable thirst of knowledge about healing and Self-realization by attending multiple courses, workshops, Jungian Reading Groups, and even Shamanic training. My career started in MIND, where I had the honour of working for almost 5 years, I could not have asked for a better beginning. I was offered the chance of creating from scratch a Counselling Service for Parents, which functioned successfully for 6 years in three Primary Schools in London, running along with my private practice, to which I devote all my time now. I feel blessed that my work enriches me as professional and as a human being.

What do you love most about your job?

What I love the most is definitely when I see my clients to start uplifting, even in a small way, the heaviness they have been feeling sometimes for years;
when they start activating their will towards something they want to experience, towards their dreams;
when they start making sense of something they did not before;
when they start managing their energy in a more self supportive way;
when I see them claiming back their power.
The indescribable and quiet joy I feel when witnessing any amount of unfolding out of the situation they had when they came to me. That is what I love the most about my work.

What inspired you to start your own business?

The wish to be free to customise and negotiate the help to my clients, no compromising or limiting to any external policy, allowing my clients' views, feelings and hopes to inspire the choice of work style more suitable to them.

Why should our clients choose you?

Because I can proudly say that I put all what I am in my work, training, academic studies, all life experiences -easy and less easy, as I am the result of all of that richness.
I feel a genuine interest in what my clients bring to me and I feel honoured and privileged that they are sharing their most personal issues with me.
I work with empathy and sensitivity.
I am honest in recognizing from the beginning if I sense that I am a good match for my client's needs. Otherwise, I will offer other professional ways to get the help that they seek and deserve.

Counselling FAQs

Your expert Counsellor will be able to advise you on the full range of services available and will be able to advise on what is most suitable. Use Bark to get free quotes and schedule an appointment today.

At your appointment, you will be encouraged to talk about your feelings and emotions with a trained Counsellor who will listen and support you without judging or criticising.
The therapist can help you gain a better understanding of your feelings and thought processes and find your own solutions to problems. However, they will not usually give advice or tell you what to do. The Counsellor might sum up what they understand you have been saying so that they can help you to form a plan of action.

Counselling can take place in a number of ways. These include:

  • Face to face session

  • Group session

  • Phone session

  • Email session

  • Online through live chat services or video conferencing software

You may be offered a single session of Counselling, a short course of sessions over a few weeks or months or a longer course that lasts for several months or years.

It can take a number of sessions before you start to see progress but you should gradually start to feel better with the help and support of your Counsellor.

You can be confident that any of the Bark local Counsellors listed will give you a reliable and efficient service to help you feel better.

You could look for Counsellors that are accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA) which means that they have met the PSA’s required professional standards to practise.

Before you choose a Counsellor, you could read testimonials and read details of the issues they can help with on their website.

You could also look at their profile page on Bark and check out reviews from past customers too.

Counselling can help with many issues. These include the following:

  • Mental health conditions such as depression, anxiety or eating disorders.

  • Physical health conditions such as infertility.

  • Difficult life events such as a bereavement, a relationship breakdown or work-related stress.

  • Dealing with difficult emotions such as low self-esteem or anger.

  • Sexual identity issues.

  • Divorce.

  • Redundancy and work issues.

  • Phobias and fears.

Absolutely! Many Counsellors provide their services remotely via an online video call or the telephone. Not only is it more convenient, but it's also the preferable option for many people who would feel more comfortable holding the session from the comfort of their own home.
