"Cristina is a great therapist. She made me feel safe within the first session. I felt I could open up easily and we started identifying where my problems were very quickly. I also could feel the progress we made in a very short amount of time in my day to day life. Her methods seems to be different to therapists i've seen in the past but I really love the way she works so I would highly recommend her."

"Before working with Cristina, I was diagnosed with long-standing chronic fatigue. My GP recommended I find a psychologist to address the emotional difficulties leading to physical exhaustion. I had been through the NHS fatigue clinic services which were extremely helpful, but limited in availability. I had no hesitation meeting Cristina, and she was prompt in her responses. After our trial session I felt sufficiently seen, heard and comfortable to continue. She is available, usefully, both via Skype and in person (with her cat). The main outcome for me so far has been a deep settling into myself, leading to big steps forwards in many parts of my life and, crucially, less fatigue. I wasn’t expecting a therapist to be so committed to the mind-body connection. It was a relief to find someone who wanted to work with me on that basis. I would suggest Cristina’s services to anyone ready to move forward from stuckness and unhealthy cycles. Her work would be less helpful to someone with no interest in making shifts and changes in their life. I would certainly recommend working with Cristina. I continue to be impressed by the evident depth of her knowledge and understanding, humour and directness."

"Cristina has been very easy to talk to from the very first session. She is very engaging and caring. She adjusts the sessions based on my needs and emotional state. Sometimes suggesting breathing, calming and relaxing techniques and pertinent readings to optionally practice in-between sessions. She has provided me with a lot of insight and support, and I have seen changes happening already over a short period of time. She has also been very flexible and accommodating around my working/travelling schedule. I would highly recommend Cristina as a therapist."

"Cristina has shown an extraordinary ability to help me discover, understand and heal myself with warmth, humour and patience. Wary of resistance she goes with the ebbs and flows of therapy with natural awareness. The dream analysis has proved extremely interesting and revealing and has greatly helped me uncover and reveal past memories and trauma in a truly insightful way which I feel is rapidly helping in my healing and avoidance of self destructive tendencies."
