I work as an integrative counsellor, hypnotherapist and group facilitator trained and influenced by several approaches to counselling such as Gestalt (working with the Whole- body, mind and spirit), CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy), REBT (Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy) and VRET (Virtual Reality Exposure Therapy).
Alongside my private practice in London I am also based in an exclusive rehabilitation treatment centre in Costa Blanca- Spain, providing 1-2-1 therapy, hypnotherapy and group work.
