I have a mixed heritage English/Mexican background and can conduct counselling in Spanish. I was born in Mexico and raised in Croydon from the age of three.
Before becoming a counsellor I had a varied career, from cleaner to executive assistant in the City.
My research interests are cultural/bicultural identity development, multiculturalism, and trauma & memory. I am fascinated by time as an entity. In my spare time I like to potter in my garden, read novels and watch Telenovelas!
I have over 10 years’ experience of working with troubled individuals. I have worked in GP surgeries, schools, and private practice helping people from various backgrounds with a broad range of issues.
My core training was as an integrative therapist and additionally I have completed substantial further training related to specific client groups, in particular working with children/young people and those affected by trauma and anxiety. I am a qualified EMDR therapist and have enjoyed the way this has helped me develop as a counsellor.
