My interest in psychology and the field of psychotherapy was awake from an early age. Growing up between Europe and Africa, I developed a passion and fascination towards cultures. And so over the past 15 years, I travelled, studied, collected experiences and felt enriched by meeting and working with clients from all over the world. I worked with trauma and abuse; domestic violence and sexual abuse, schizophrenia, and substance misuse. Since, I opened my private practice in 2016, I have seen clients dealing with
Depression and low self-esteem
Work related stress
Self-harm and suicide
Feelings of disempowerment and hoplessness
cross-road decisions, among other.
I completed 6 years of training in psychotherapy and counselling, building on my Bachelor and Master studies in Psychology. I abide by the code of ethics of the BACP and UKCP professional bodies.
