My life-long interest in the diversity of life experiences and what it means to be a human being has lead me to practice drama, to learn and translate languages and finally to become an integrative counsellor.
Through my continuous learning, I’m aspiring to develop my practice as holistically as possible and this has lead me to integrate ecopsychology, imagination and body-informed practices into my work.
My innate belief in the importance of our interconnection with nature brought me also to become London's first ANFT-certified nature & forest therapy guide. This work enables me to (re)introduce people to a sensible way to support their wellness and balance, while restoring their relationship to the natural world.
As a counsellor or as a guide, wholeness, connection, meaning, resilience and creativity are at the core of my work.
I worked with people from all walks of life at Waterloo Community Counselling, students from London South Bank University, asylum seekers and French-speaking migrants at the Multi-Ethnic Counselling Service.
Currently, I work in private practice and as an associate counsellor for the Wilderness Foundation.
Through the years, I've helped my clients deal with issues such as anxiety, depression, creativity, life transitions, bereavement and low self-esteem, among other things.
I enjoy working with a diverse range of people and I have a particular interest in grief and loss, life transition, identity, imagination and ritual.
As a nature and forest therapy guide, I lead public and private forest therapy experiences. I particularly enjoy the group and reciprocity elements of this practice, which stand apart in an increasingly individualistic society.
I'm a member of the BACP and of the Association of Nature and Forest Therapy and I abide by their code of ethics.
I'm committed to continued professional development and I am in regular supervision, as required by the BACP.
I'm certified in Outdoor First Aid and carries a first aid kit on all my outdoor work. And I've got an enhanced DBS check.
