About me and my therapy practice
I am a clinical psychologist and a psychosynthesis counsellor, also post-graduated in palliative care. Having an integrative approach, I have been focusing my interest and research on ecopsychology, grief and psychosomatics.
The opportunity of having worked in a Palliative Care Unit, kept me close to matters like bereavement, grief and loss. Also, since I have always been working with the expat community, I became close to matters like change, human migration and ecopsychology.
Nonetheless, our work can address any form of suffering and struggling.
Indeed, psychotherapy can be helpful whenever it seems that something is missing or is not quite right. It can help us to cope with a particular situation or when we are willing to experience a deeper transformation. Whatever brings you, our work will always be grounded by our therapeutic relationship, a safe, welcoming and non-judgemental space.
I use imagery, nature-based and somatic techniques when they are adequate.
I work online, allowing me to work with the Portuguese community living abroad and to give continuity to the therapeutic work with expats who are moving away from Portugal.
I have my counselling office in Portugal.
My first session
Our first session will be an opportunity for us to meet and for you to ask any questions you might have. We also make an agreement on how we will work together.
I like to work on a weekly basis, when possible, so as to establish a rhythm and momentum to our work together.
My work is guided by the ethical principle of confidentiality laid by the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists.
