About me and my therapy practice
I am a Person Centred Therapist registered with the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I have extensive experience working with under-represented communities and helping people understanding their behaviours.
My counselling journey started a decade ago, not as a qualified counsellor, but as a client. By offering a judgment free space and the opportunity to be vulnerable, my therapist supported me on my journey of self-acceptance. It is on that connection between counsellor and client that I base my work. In my humanistic approach to therapy I believe that my clients are the experts of themselves. Together we can focus on the goals they have set and, as the relationship develops, untie the knots that are holding them back from reaching their objectives. In my personal experience as a therapist, relationship is key for change.
Although I welcome clients from all backgrounds, helping them on their journey of self discovery, I have extensively worked with the LGBTQ+ and migrant communities both as an activist and as a counsellor.
I am also able to offer sessions in Portuguese.
As a therapist I can help you with;
· Abuse (including sexual abuse)
· Family/Relationship Issues
· Low Self Esteem
· Suicidal Ideation
My first session
Before our first session I offer a 10 minute introductory call where we can discuss what your goals and expectations are for therapy. This call can be an important tool for you to decide if we are a match.
If you choose to start having sessions with me I will send to your email a counselling contract and an assessment sheet. The contract should be signed and the assessment completed and then sent back to me (preferably before our first session).
