About me and my therapy practice
I am an experienced counsellor and transpersonal art therapist, offering a safe, confidential and non-judgmental space to support you in your therapeutic process. I conduct individual and group counselling as well as life and career mentoring.
As a Therapist and Mentor, I facilitate an exploration into a more resourceful and more meaningful way of living by incorporating a variety of approaches into my work. Each therapy, or mentoring session is tailor-made to suit each individual’s needs.
Coming from a multicultural background, fluent in English, Portuguese and Italian, I have a deep understanding of the unique challenges faced by members of the expat community. With more than 40 years of experience working with counselling and human resources, since 2008 I have been focusing my therapeutic work and research on Biographical Counselling and Transpersonal Art Therapy.
Moreover, I have been meditating for many years and I can share these tools during my sessions if necessary. In my practice I can see that it helps to promote more awareness, a sense of connection and belonging. As a result, a decrease in anxiety and mood swings are also observed.
Practice descriptionEnsuring that the client is met with acceptance and warmth, the 90-minutes sessions (online or face to face) are what I like to call paths to discovery. We will work with reflexive questions, the analysis of phases of life, and, when it is suited, exercising a more detached outlook on life´s events by recreating images and scenes using different approaches from the visual arts.
My first session
During your first session we would talk about what brings you to counselling, and what you are hoping to gain from your time with me in the sessions. We will set our goals, ethics, confidentiality and the session’s timeframe. A free brief telephone conversation is possible before the session.
