About me and my therapy practice

Isabel is a fully qualified counsellor and registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). Experience in working with adults and young people from various nationalities and cultures presenting a wide range of issues. Works face-to-face indoors and outdoors (ecotherapy) in Brighton and Hove, as well as online (e.g. Skype) and email. Counselling in English, Portuguese/Brazilian and Spanish. Living and working in the UK for over 25 years.

Grounded in the humanistic approach which focus on the human potential for creativity, love, growth, fulfilment and psychological health, Isabel works with her clients' whole experience and considers the processes of thinking, feeling and behaviour equally important.

She assists adults and young people gaining greater insights about themselves, their thoughts, feelings, behaviours, past and present relationships and life experiences. She commits to help them making sense of their circumstances, identifying choices for change and supporting them during the process of change; or simply supporting them on their self-development journey.

Parallel to her private practice Isabel works for YMCA Dialogue at local schools and at their service centres in Brighton and Hove; for Cruse Bereavement (she's Cruse accredited) and have also worked for As You Are Centre and BHT Threshold.

Isabel brings to her practice a wealth of experience from the educational sector, corporate busines and services and healthcare industries, having lived, studied and/or worked in Portugal, Brazil, Spain, Denmark, Gibraltar and currently in the UK.
