Personal Profile

I am a qualified and accredited Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist with experience gathered through over 7 years practicing psychotherapy. I have worked with clients and patients coming from a wide range of backgrounds and presenting the most diverse of issues.

I have experience working both in Private Practice and in the NHS. I have also worked with different institutions and organisations. My experience has helped me to develop an empathetic and flexible approach, learning from each client and adapting with each therapy. I can also provide therapy in Portuguese and Spanish.

I have worked with clients and patients from many different countries and cultures, in different stages and circumstances of life and presenting a great variety of issues. Some of the difficulties I have helped clients with are:

Abuse; Addictions; Alcohol and Drug Abuse; Anxiety; Anger; Bereavement; Bipolar Disorder; Depression; Dissociation; Eating Disorders; Flatness of Emotions; Low Self-Esteem; Mood Swings; Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD); Panic Attacks; Phobias; Psychosexual Difficulties; Psychosomatic Symptoms; Relationship Difficulties; Relationship Violence and Abuse; Stress; Self-Harm; Trauma and Traumatic Events; Work Related Issues.

I see clients and patients in a quiet and secluded consulting room in central London (EC1).

Work Approach

As a Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist I will help you to explore the roots of your difficulties, to rethink the issues that may be holding you back and to understand and better accept yourself so you can move on. 

When you first contact me (either by email or phone) you will have the opportunity to tell me a bit about what it is you want help with. If you wish we could then arrange an initial face-to-face consultation.

The first 2 or 3 sessions are for us to explore in detail what has led you to seek therapy, and to think of ways in which psychoanalytic psychotherapy may be able to help you. This initial consultation stage happens over more than one session so we have enough time to think about your problem, what it may be related to and if psychotherapy is the best option to help you.

I appreciate that initial meetings can be anxiety provoking, and this is another reason why we take our time in the consultation stage. But if we both agree that we can work together and that psychoanalytic psychotherapy is the way forward, you will then be asked to come at least once-a-week for a 50 minutes session, and the meetings will happen in the same place and same time every week.

In Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy we will work together to explore and understand your feelings, thoughts, beliefs and anxieties, trying to uncover whatever may still be unconscious in what is affecting your life. You will be encouraged to speak freely about anything that comes to your mind. I will help you to look into what you may be unaware of at the time.

In the sessions we will also look into how you feel about yourself and how you relate to others, looking into possible patterns that may be affecting in your life.

Psychotherapy is a rewarding process which can help you become more self-aware so you can feel more in control of your emotions and make better sense of your relationships and your feelings. There is a meaning underneath every suffering and symptom, and psychotherapy will help you develop, re-organise yourself and move on in many aspects of your life.

I also offer psychotherapy services in Portuguese and Spanish.
