About Me

About me

Bloomsbury Psychotherapist

I am a BACP registered and accredited Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist working in London (Bloomsbury – WC1), with over 14 years’ experience practicing psychotherapy with clients 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. Throughout my career I have also worked with different institutions and organisations, providing psychotherapy services to individuals and groups. My experience has helped me to develop a non-judgmental, empathic and flexible approach, learning from each client and adapting with each therapy.

I can also provide therapy in Portuguese and Spanish.

I have worked in psychotherapy with clients and patients coming 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:


  • MA in Psychoanalytic Studies (Tavistock & Portman NHS Foundation Trust / University of East London – UK – 2010)
