I'm an experienced Psychotherapist offering individual therapy to young adults and adults of all ages in Richmond, London, both in English and Portuguese.
My experience has been gained over a number of years in the NHS, a top London University, and in private practice. I am registered and accredited Member of the British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists.
I see clients with a range of issues including bereavement, depression, Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD) and relationship problems, and the specific obstacles faced by young adults.
I strongly believe that psychotherapy enables people to fulfill their potential and live a richer and more balanced life.
The initial assessment meeting is an opportunity for you to talk about what matters to you, and what concerns you. I will help you to feel comfortable with me, feel able to raise your concerns, ask questions, understand confidentiality, and decide ways forward.
