43a Quarry Hill Road. Tonbridge, TN9 2RS
I am a BABCP Accredited Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist, Chartered Psychologist and BACP registered counsellor. I have over fifteen years of experience in the treatment of a wide range of complex psychological problems including addictions, anxiety disorders (OCD, panic, social anxiety, phobias, health anxiety, generalised anxiety), trauma, personality disorders, depression, eating disorders and low self-esteem.
I have worked for many years within the NHS in primary and secondary care as well as forensic and acute settings.
I can 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 have a calm, friendly and curious nature which makes it possible for a trusting relationship to grow. You can get a sense of how you feel speaking with me in our brief initial pre-assessment call before booking your appointment.
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 the possible functions of unhelpful behaviours. This can be an added benefit in understand some of your behaviours in terms of current and previous adaptations rather than in a pathological and judgemental manner.
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.
