Why consider psychotherapy and counselling?

Challenging relationships, life events or situations can sometimes take us by surprise; other times they can be overwhelming. That’s why it’s helpful to take a step back and talk to a counsellor who can help you make sense of what is happening – not just around us, but also within us. It is in counselling that we move towards making lasting change and healing these wounds. We learn how to stop hurting others and ourselves, and start taking steps towards deeper connection and growth.

My Approach

Whether you want to discuss a specific issue or situation, or are looking for a more in-depth understanding of yourself, it can take courage to reach out. Counselling provides a comfortable and confidential environment to achieve this.

By listening to you, and looking at what drives you, what scares you and what motivates you, I will help guide you to the inner strength and resources that you have within yourself for making lasting change.

I offer `in the room` and online counselling and psychotherapy services to individuals and couples for issues such as anxiety, depression, relationships, sexual difficulties, stress, burnout, panic disorder, addictions, PTSD, conflicts and trauma. I have been developing my professional career for over 14 year, mainly in the field of clinical psychology and psychotherapy of adults. In a constant process of training and learning, in recent years I have been specially trained in work related stress and burnout, grief counselling, attachment, Internal Family Systems Therapy and Emotion Focused Therapy. My work methodology is integrative since I use tools and techniques from different approaches and I adapt to the needs of each person. I look at the person and her/his problems from a bio-psycho-social and integral perspective and work on the difficulties and symptoms both emotionally, cognitively, behaviourally and at the body level, especially taking into account the theory of attachment and its psycho-therapeutic applications.

Psychotherapy and counselling

Psychotherapy and counselling are terms that are often used interchangeably. Many people see them as overlapping activities with some differences but with a lot of features in common. Some argue that there is no difference at all. And there are others who view them as two completely distinct activities.
