CBT has been shown to be an effective treatment for people suffering from a range of mild to moderate mental health problems such as:
• Depression and low mood
• Problems with anxiety (including Social Anxiety and
• Generalised Anxiety)
• Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
• Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
• Specific Phobias
• Panic Disorder
Counselling can be helpful for coming to terms with loss and bereavement and to help you understand yourself and find solutions to your problems. Many people find that just by talking about their problems with a caring professional who listens empathically and without judging is enough help them cope and overcome their problems.
Both CBT and Counselling can also be used for dealing with addictions (drugs, alcohol, food, sex, gambling, etc), and longer terms personality problems.

How I can help
Having worked in the NHS, charities and forensic settings, with a wide-range of clients for over fifteen years I now specialise in the treatment of anxiety disorders (panic disorder, generalized anxiety, post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), phobias, social anxiety, health anxiety), depression, addictions and drug use, low self-esteem, childhood abuse, relationship problems and anger.
In addition to being a fully qualified CBT therapist and Integrative Counsellor, I am in the final stages of completing a doctorate in Counselling Psychology.
Many of my clients choose to have therapy with me as a male psychotherapist, with an interest in male psychology and men's issues.
As I am originally from Venezuela, I am bilingual and can also conduct therapy in Spanish as well as English.
I also have a Masters in Evolutionary Psychology and the techniques I practice are based on evidence and have been proven to enable people to improve their lives.
