Being born as 1st generation Filipino in Vienna/ Austria, I understand what it means to perhaps feel confused about your sense of identity and belonging. Especially in today’s fast-paced and competitive world, I was struggling to find a sense of purpose or meaning, when working for large companies in the City of London and Vienna for most of my professional life.
Through listening to my own inner struggle and yearning, I have found the courage and resource within myself to make a gradual change to retrain as a counsellor and today I am able to practise both professions in a flexible way.
Besides my private practise, I am also a counsellor at the NHS in Putney and have been continuously involved at the Counselling Service at the Psychosynthesis Trust at London Bridge by seeing clients and, most recently, assessing clients and managing the referral process to counsellors in our pool on a part-time basis.
I am a fully qualified Psychosynthesis counsellor, who graduated with a postgraduate diploma at the Psychosynthesis Trust .
Ever since my graduation I kept assisting at the Psychosynthesis Trust to keep my skills fresh and share my experiences with my fellow counsellors in training. My training is accredited by the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) and the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP).
I am also a registered member of the BACP and adhere to their ethical framework. I attend regular supervision to continuously explore ways to hold and support my clients in the best way they deserve.
