Hi, I am Eduardo,

Sometimes, living with high levels of anxiety, guilt. shame, or fear for a prolonged period, can negatively affect the way we perceive ourselves and others. It can make you feel misunderstood, lonely, and disconnected from others; ultimately you could develop symptoms of depression.   Dealing with these symptoms can feel overwhelming. However, having a safe place where you can talk freely can be the first step towards understanding and processing painful emotions.  

Whether you wish to explore the past, want to understand current issues, or feel you are ready to make a positive change in your life, we can work together to achieve your goals. I will provide you with a safe spacethat is free of judgement, where you can talk and learn more about your thoughts and feelings. Through insight, exploration, and adaptation I can help you to reach greater level ofconnectedness withyourself and others,feeling hope for the present and futureand developing skills to regain better emotional control that will help you toachieve your personal development ambitions.

Picking up the phone to make an initial appointment can be tough, but the improvement that counselling could make to your quality of life is more than worth it. 

I employ an integrative approach to counselling which means I can use different approaches depending what suit you best however, I tend to rely on Cognitive and Behavioural Techniques (exploring thoughts, feelings, and behaviours) followed by Solution Focused strategies which will assist you to identify the resources and qualities you have within yourself, those that will help you to overcome positively   the issue or issues that brought you in to counselling.

I have a bachelor’s degree in Counselling-Psychotherapy and for the past 15 years, I have supported people to overcome situations that prevent them to reach the whole of their potential.  I have a special interest in helping individuals overcome anxiety, depression, attachment problems, co-dependency, and addictions. 

I am a BACP registered counsellor and practice in accordance with the BACP ethical framework:  https://www.bacp.co.uk/events-and-resources/ethics-and-standards/

 

I can provide support in both English and Spanish.
