I work as a psychotherapist and hold classes, courses and retreats focused on raising emotional awareness and increasing our understanding of the complexities of our human behaviour. I believe that a greater insight into our own inner conflicts will naturally lead to more compassion and care -for others and ourselves - and will provide us with more ease and fulfilment in our lives.
In a broader sense I am interested in overcoming the challenge of being able to live alongside each other on this planet in ways that honour and acknowledge our differences, as we simultaneously develop resilience and strength. A strength that comes from a place of deep ease and non-defensiveness, and therefore is effortless. I want to assist in instigating shifts that reflect an overall sense of interconnectedness, contentment and enthusiasm for life.
I also work as a Chinese Medicine Practitioner using acupuncture, herbs, massage, cupping and moxa to address a wide array of physical and emotional complaints. Because of my work as a psychotherapist, I specialise in treating emotional imbalances, like anxiety, depression, indecisiveness,...
I first pursued studies in fashion design because of a fascination with identity and how we present ourselves to the world and seek belonging in different styles of clothing that all carry a culture and ideology within them. Realising that this path didn’t give me enough food for thought I acquired a Masters Degree in Film-Directing. Working with actors, stories and role-play temporarily satisfied my desire to study relational dynamics, how emotions are generated and changed and how they are reflected in body language.
My interest in the complexities of our human existence and a desire to alleviate suffering, urged me to continue studying. I studied hypnotherapy in the UK and obtained a Masters in Counselling and Psychotherapy in Australia.
Still not entirely satisfied I recently acquired a third Masters in Traditional Chinese Medicine at the Universidad Europeo del Atlantico in Barcelona. This degree came out of a desire to better help clients finding wellbeing as I frequently feel that mood disorders like anxiety have a very strong energetic component to them and can be hard to overcome without rebalancing the energetics of the body.
