Hello I’m Selene. I have 20 years of experience as a counsellor. I am a warm and open-minded person with a good sense of humour. I offer a welcoming and confidential space where we can together create an empowering therapeutic relationship. I believe you are an expert in your own life and my role is to support and challenge you reconnecting with yourself and your strengths. Counselling is an opportunity to give yourself the time and space to imagine who you want to be. Sometimes fear and shame make us stuck and disconnected from others and not able to ask for what we want. Therapy can help you free yourself and open connection.
My work includes managing impact of past trauma in the present, men's and women's issues, identity, self esteem and confidence, communication and assertiveness, different stages of parenting, relationships, attachment and connection. I work with racial and cultural diversity, migration and relocation. I am open to challenging and difficult conversations.
I offer you the space for reflection, connection and freedom using language, imagery, metaphors, sand tray and other forms of creativity and self-expression. My work is influenced by my life experience and own journey, humanistic training and neuroscience. I value our connection with nature and I offer sessions in a garden room as well as walk and talk.
Hola me llamo Selene. Tengo más de 20 anos de experiencia como terapeuta. Soy una persona cálida, de mente abierta y con sentido del humor. Te ofrezco un espacio confidencial donde puedes explorar lo que quieras. Como terapeuta integrativa te ayudare a explorar tus emociones, pensamientos y sensaciones corporales. En mi opinión tu eres el experto o la experta en tu propia vida y mi rol es ayudarte a reconectar con tus propias capacidades. La terapia es una oportunidad para reflexionar y conectar con quieres ser y cómo quieres vivir tu vida sin que el pasado o la opinión de otros lo decida por ti. Sesiones en persona y virtuales.
A veces el miedo y la vergüenza nos hacen quedarnos estancados, desconectar y no ser capaces de pedir lo que necesitamos. La terapia te puede ayudar a liberarte y conectar con lo que quieres. Soy de origen español y he vivido en varios países. Me especializo en temas sobre diversidad racial y cultural, emigración, paternidad, transiciones.
Mi trabajo está influenciado por mis estudios humanistas así como por la neurociencia. Trabajo con varios temas incluyendo auto estima, depresión, ira, violencia doméstica, conflicto, estrés, dificultades en las relaciones de pareja y familia, abuso sexual en la infancia, duelo, temas sobre identidad cultural, racial, temas sobre masculinidad y feminismo.
