43a Quarry Hill Road. Tonbridge, TN9 2RS
I am a Chartered Psychologist and a BABCP Accredited Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist with a background in integrative counselling (BACP registered). I am also a level 3 trained EMDR therapist. I have over fifteen years of experience in the treatment of a wide range of complex psychological and personality problems, addictions, anxiety disorders (OCD, panic, social anxiety, phobias, health anxiety, generalised anxiety), trauma, personality disorders, depression, eating disorders and low self-esteem. I have a special interest in trauma/complex trauma, addictions and interpersonal difficulties, personality disorder, ADHD/ADD, and bipolar disorders. I have worked for many years within the NHS in primary and secondary care as well as forensic and acute settings.
I also work with couples and teenagers (16+).
I offer an empathic, caring and genuine relationship. My approach to therapy is solution-focused and I am keen to help you understand what keeps the problem going and how to make effective changes in order to stop unhelpful cycles.
I offer a warm and containing space where we can explore and try to understand your difficulties and yourself better in a non-judgemental and curious way, working towards both (self) acceptance and action.
I am originally from Venezuela, and so I’m also able to work in Spanish if preferred.
I also have an MSc in Evolutionary Psychology which helps in understanding unhelpful behaviours in terms of their adaptive function.
I abide by the professional and ethical standards laid down by the HCPC, BABCP and BACP and I have full professional indemnity and a current DBS.
