About me

With over seven years of clinical work experience, I work with adults offering short-term and longer-term therapy. I offer therapy in English and Portuguese, and I can help with a wide range of difficulties including:

  • Low mood and depression

Anxiety disorders:

  • Phobias.
  • Panic disorder.
  • Social anxiety.
  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.
  • Communication and relationship issues.
  • Low self-esteem/ low self-confidence.
  • Anger management.

Psychological trauma:

  • Emotional abuse.
  • Sexual abuse.
  • Disordered eating.

I am also passionate about helping people to fulfil their potential and lead meaningful lives, and I believe therapy should be an empowering experience that can facilitate individuals getting closer to what is important to them, whilst reducing emotional distress.

In addition to my private practice, I work in the National Health System (NHS). I have worked with clients across the life span from different ethnic and religious backgrounds, and I value sensitively working with diversity.

Training, qualifications & experience

I completed a doctorate in Clinical Psychology at the Institute of Psychiatry (King’s College London), a PhD in Psychology (at Keele University), and a Bachelor in Psychology (BSc).

My main therapeutic approaches are Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). I have also trained in Narrative Exposure Therapy (NET), which is widely used in complex trauma; Solution Focused Therapy, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy, and Mindfulness based therapy. I would therefore be able to provide you a tailored-made psychological intervention that suits your individual needs.

Please feel free to contact me if you are considering engaging in therapy and would like to discuss your requirements. I provide a free 15 min telephone consultation.
