More about me

I hold a degree in Psychology from the University of Buenos Aires. After graduation I worked as a qualitative market researcher for ten years. I moved to York in 1999 and began my counselling training at York St. John University where I got an Certificate in Counselling. Then I moved onto complete a diploma in Therapeutic Counselling from Leeds Metropolitan University. Since completing the Diploma I have developed clinical experience at 'One Parent Families', the 'Tuke Centre' in York and 'Solace', a voluntary sector organisation that offers help and support to asylum seekers and refugees in Leeds.

In addition I have also worked at Doncaster Rape and Sexual Abuse Counselling Centre where I accrued experience with emotionally vulnerable and psychologically frail clients coming from disempowered backgrounds. In 2008 I gained my BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy) accreditation and joined the Primary Care Counselling Team at the NHS where I work at present. In this setting I engage with a 'wider' range of emotional and psychological presentations in short term counselling.

In my private practice, I have offered counselling to 'clinically depressed clients' as part of a research project developed by the University of York.

Most recently, in 2011 I have gained a Post-Graduate Certificate in Clinical Supervision at the University of Leeds.
