About me

As a psychologist I believe that, in the same way that our physical body can heal a certain degree of illness or injury, our brain can also heal and process a great deal of experiences, even when these are less positive. And we go through life in a more or less adapted way, balancing pleasure and pain, accummulating antibodies, scars and resilience.

Sometimes however things may be beyond our natural capacity and we need help; this could be because the cause of our illness (physical or psychological) is too debilitating, because it has been affecting us for too long or simply because we want to gain control, feel better and make life easier.

Whether your reasons are more clinical such as depression, anxiety or stress, loss, divorce or trauma or you are looking into changing your habits, quit smoking, lose weight, gain control of your addictions, feelings about yourself or your relationships, I believe that a combination of techniques together with a deep understanding of the psychological mechanisms are fundamental.

I can offer a variety of techniques accumulated throughout many years of experience coupled with the academic background updated through regular training to help you achieve your objective.

If you would like to discuss how I could help you, do get in touch for a free initial consultation.
