My aim is to help you explore any issues that interfere with your mental and emotional wellbeing, and to help you find your own resources to live the life you prefer
I have always been very interested in understanding what makes people cope, heal and thrive. I know an essential part of the answer comes down to having an environment that supports self-reflection, self-regard and growth. I believe counselling can be that time and space we need to make sense of our experiences, to express ourselves, to explore what configures our identity, to clarify stressors and to update our goals and coping strategies.
I was born and raised in Spain, I also offer sessions in spanish; there I received my bachelor´s degree in Psychology. I continued Psychology studies in New York, USA where I was awarded an MA in Psychology and worked providing counselling to individuals with all kinds of issues. I have completed a Diploma in Integrative Counselling in Bristol which has allowed me to learn and practise counselling with an emphasis on the humanistic approach.
The humanistic approach applied to counselling has two main principles: healthy development of the individual occurs when the person feels congruence between who they are (self) and who they would like to be (ideal self).
The role of the therapist is to provide the conditions that foster healthy growth for the client: through a process called person-centered therapy, the therapist seeks to provide empathy, openness, and unconditional positive regard.
I also value and use other approaches (CBT, Trauma-informed therapy, TA and solution-focused mainly), depending on the circumstances and on what my clients seem to respond to best.
I see counselling as the accompanied process of growth towards reaching one´s potential. It is my aim to make this process as safe and rewarding for you as possible.’
