Are you struggling with anxiety, intrusive thoughts, overthinking, panic attacks and worrying? Perhaps you have been feeling that you don’t like yourself, you don’t have confidence and or you don’t want people to find out? I offer an initial free telephone or video call conversation, get in touch. Are you feeling isolated, a sense of not belonging, confusion, feeling like you are disconnected and or avoiding friends and family? Avoiding any kind of social interaction or desperately needing reconnect again? I can help you with that. I believe through counselling, clients can recover motivation, perspective, hope, strengthen problem solve skills, build resilience and learn how to tolerate anxiety; they also can overcome unwanted memories and sadness not only but also experience joy again. As an Integrative counsellor in a nutshell my approach allows me to use different tools to better help you to explore your past and or present, relationships with self and others and if needed, help you to connect some dots and find some clarity in why you may do things in a certain way, allowing you to change if that is what you want.

I have been working with a diverse range of clients since 2018 when I first started seeing clients my experience as counsellor has been in school settings, independent mental health charities. Currently I see Portuguese and Italians speakers IAPT clients in South London I am also a counselling coordinator in a women’s charity in Harrow and I work with my private clients.
