Life is not always easy. The fact that you are looking at my page suggests that something feels stuck, painful, maybe hopeless or unreachable and that you want something different for yourself – that you want things to change. Perhaps you want to free yourself from repetitive patterns of behaviour, depression, anxiety and self-limiting beliefs or the impact of trauma. Maybe you want to deepen your connection to yourself so that life feels richer and more rewarding and you can find a more authentic sense of yourself. Whatever your reason, I offer you a safe, empathetic and thoughtful space to explore whatever you want to bring.

I have worked in a variety of settings in the field of mental health services: HMP Prison services in specialist addictions units & rehabilitation, Community drug services NHS Primary Care with IAPT and the Priory Hospital Bristol with inpatients and outpatient services.Each of these positions has built skills of understanding, therapeutic alliance, compassion and commitment to each of the people that trust me to support them. I believe in the ‘art and science’ of CBT and the therapeutic value and benefit of those coming together.This requires effort and personal investment, and it can feel hard, so let’s take a breath together .

You might be in crisis: a relationship breakdown, sudden news of the death of a loved one or an illness, a work loss, or at an emotional or spiritual crossroads. Or you may generally have the feeling that your life isn't all you'd like it to be - you feel stuck, aren't living up to your potential or feeling as fulfilled or happy as you would like. Either way, you can be supported to navigate successfully through the very choppy waters of crisis - or the fog of confusion or uncertainty. You don't have to go it alone! You may well emerge from the other side a stronger and happier person than you ever thought possible.

Do you find yourself going around painful and frustrating circles in your life and relationships? Do you feel stuck, overwhelmed and uncertain how to move forward? Sometimes, despite our best efforts, we just need another person to help us find a new path. Therapy can help us make sense of our feelings, thoughts and actions. It can support us to work through difficult emotions and memories and enable us to find the courage and compassion needed to forge a better life for ourselves. Choosing a therapist can be daunting, but having an initial chat on the phone can help you decide if someone feels like a good fit for you.

I am an integrative counsellor, drawing on many different theories to inform my work with you. Sometimes in life our mental health suffers and we feel in need of help. Now, more than ever, we are aware of the importance of addressing, not ignoring, this. Depending on our own history, we either reach out to find support or we drive the discomfort inside us, employing alternative strategies to avoid or numb the pain, prolonging and deepening the problems. It is my belief that through the relationship we build together we can experience, understand and repair the effects of those challenges.

No matter the issue you are struggling with, be it anxiety, depression, or low self steem, I can help you with it. Whatever it is your are experiencing, reach out, things can get better. I have worked as body therapist for 20 years now and the experience of working physically and energetically greatly complements what I have to offer as a counsellor. I go beyond of paying attention to your words, I listen to your body, your breath, how you speak and how you are in silence. In that way, I can recognise effectively the best way or tools to support your therapeutic process. I offer bilingual sessions in Brazilian Portuguese.

I have always championed a person's ability to empower themselves and develop a stronger self connection and connection to others. It is a privilege to share in the personal challenges and ventures of each unique individual I work with in therapy. If you need to find a space to really be listened to, make sense of past, present or future events, discuss personal issues and learn how to move into a deeper understanding of yourself, I would be honoured to be there alongside you.

Anyone can feel the need to talk through what is troubling them; the past two years have proven tough for a lot of people. From worries about getting angry to feeling like you aren't heard - therapy can help. Perhaps you want to move forwards but feel stuck, or maybe a change is proving tough to navigate. If your past won't let you go, therapy allows you to explore this and loosen the grip of the past on your present. Sometime you just need a calm, safe space to think about what really matters for you and therapy offers this opportunity to sit with someone with no agenda other than to help you.

I use an eclectic approach within the Human Givens framework, knowing exactly why each varied and different technique can be effective in accordance with current neuroscience.

If you are struggling with feelings of low self-esteem, stress, anxiety, depression or bereavement or if you are having problems in your relationships at home or at work, counselling might be able to help you to make important changes in your life. Counselling provides a special therapeutic relationship where you will not be judged and where you will be given the respect and empathy that is needed for you to truly express yourself. Without providing advice, instructions or directions I aim to empower my clients so that they can work towards a happier future.

I use an integrative approach to counselling, drawing on techniques from different approaches. This approach is applied according to my clients' interests, by harnessing their strengths to assist themselves in self-development and growth. I use different therapeutic tools based on theory, for each client because there is no ‘one size fits all’ when it comes to counselling and life coaching. Counselling is a collaborative process where the role of the counsellor is to guide, mentor and assist the client according to his or her needs.
