About me

Having 18 years experience as a psychotherapist, counsellor and coach, I have specialised in the field of addiction, bereavement, anxiety, depression, relationship issues, HIV, couple counselling, anger management and set up one of London’s largest substance misuse counselling service.

I work with both individuals and couples employing existential themes and CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy). Whilst having a great deal of knowledge, I maintain a comfortable yet professional relationship with my clients.

Alongside my work as the Pan Barnet/Harrow Counselling Coordinator and private practice, I work as a coach and used to supervise other therapists at Mind, Turning Point, Lifeline and Addiction. I am also a visiting lecturer at The New School of Psychotherapy and Counselling and continuing my own studies working on a PhD.

I work both in English and Portuguese.

Training, qualifications & experience

My diverse experience acquired from different counselling settings (NHS and charities) has given me the opportunities to being exposed to a variety of clients’ life issues: trauma, ‘bipolar disorder’, anxiety, suicidal tendencies, family abuse, substance misuse, bereavement, eating disorder, HIV, sexual violence.

I work hard to develop the relationship between clients and myself, aiming to respect individual values and the client’s capacity for self-determination. What is central to my interactions with my clients is that it is their process; my role is mainly to provide a safe, therapeutic space and time to facilitate the clients individual emotional growth.
