About Me

I have been a therapist for more than a decade. My purpose in life is to support others in their journey, to be of service and to create safe spaces where exploration and compassion are felt and lived. I have worked with healing the body in many modalities (massage, Cranio-Sacral therapy, Reflexology, Reiki, yoga), offering treatments to support all my clients in developing deeper connection and a more restful experience of life. I am also a Family Constellation therapist and I have a thriving practice, this modality works with intergenerational trauma and give us the new perspectives to our long standing issues. I am a Humanistic Counsellor and what I love about being a Counsellor is the opportunity to go on a deeper journey with you, a journey of discovery and realisation, support, acceptance, reflection and so much more; a place where you - the client- can be seen, heard and supported; I worked with trauma in all these capacities, as a body worker, with family constellations and Counselling, I love learning and I am always studying and expanding my knowledge. I work creatively and intuitively, with a grounded approach. I am from Colombia and offer sessions in Spanish too.

Therapeutic Approach

My work as a therapist is underpinned by the Humanistic tradition, this means that the I hold the value of the individual at the core of our relating; the client has within themselves all that is required for growth, development and healing and given the right conditions they can flourish and engage with a meaningful life. Due to our global history and conditioning these right conditions are rarely met and felt even though we are indeed individuals we are also part of many different systems with their own rules and requirements to belong. Therapy is a space to explore, reflect and utilise. My purpose as your therapist is to provide you with a safe container, with kindness, curiousity, in a co-creative atmosphere in which our relating can hold you and support you in the process of your growth, healing development, or simply a space to be held and seen as you true self and the discovery of them.

Background

I have a deep love for holism, I believe in an approach to life that moves towards inclusion rather than reduction, where our deepest questions can be held in the mirror of many angles, this is why I have dedicated my life to studying many forms of therapeutic interventions and connections. I am very passionate about finding spaces where authenticity can be experienced and heartfelt connections thrive
