"My practice draws on a relational and integrative approach, focusing on the therapeutic relationship while we work together"
My passion has always been to work with people, supporting their personal growth and helping people develop happier and more meaningful lives, providing a safe environment where they can find inner strength and resilience.
I am a qualified Psychologist graduated in 2002 in Brazil and a Psychotherapist in the UK registered to the British Association for Counseling and Psychotherapy Society UK (BACP).
With 19 years of experience in Counselling and Psychotherapy, I have worked with people of all ages and backgrounds and can help you with a variety of concerns.
My practice draws on a relational and integrative approach, focusing on the therapeutic relationship while we work together.
I am also an EMDR, Brainspotting, Bioenergetics Analyses and Trauma Informed Practitioner and may draw on those should they be relevant to our work together.
Within a flexible and personalized approach to treatment, you can expect the following from our sessions:
Mutual trust, respect and confidentiality;
Shared decision-making and agreement on the goals of therapy;
The freedom to share any negative emotional responses, thoughts and feelings;
Co-constructing a space within which you feel comfortable and able to share and experience difficult emotions;
Empathic support in undoing self-criticism, as well as challenging, and changing behaviors;
A caring space within which we can explore difficult, traumatic and painful relationships, feelings or events;
Knowledge and expertise that can help regulate, mitigate, and alleviate emotional trauma responses within your body.
I work with children 8 + and adults.
