My purpose as a Psychotherapist is to bring self-awareness to the patient of their emotional issues, behaviours and their way of connecting with themselves and the world. My work consists of walking with the patient through the discoveries, experiences and emotions, from the present and past, in the here and now, aiming for self-awareness and searching for a healthier way of living.
My goal is to give a non-judgmental, comprehensive and safe environment for my patients, building a trustful therapist-patient relationship.
I believe that empathy is the most important key for a successful work between patient and therapist and I can assert that I have a considerable capacity of putting myself in others shoes, empathizing and feeling together with my patients. Also, I am a warm and supportive therapist.
I have more than 14 years of experience as a psychotherapist, working with adults, couples and families with a range of issues. I see clients in Marylebone and Battersea, in London and Online, via Skype or Facetime. I worked and volunteered for 1.5 years at the Multi-ethnic Counselling Service in Waterloo Community Centre, were I used to see NHS/IAPT patients.
I am fully qualified, registered and insured to practice psychotherapy in the UK. I am a member of BPS (MBPsS) and of BACP (MBACP). I have trained on Gestalt-therapy and Systemic Therapy, but I also use some techniques from different approaches. I see clients in English and Portuguese.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a BA in Psychology, a Postgraduate in Gestalt-therapy and a Postgraduate in Systemic Family Therapy. Also, I am always looking to develop myself with courses, workshops, lectures, supervision, etc.
Most of my experience is with private practice, where I started more than 14 years ago. I also worked as a psychotherapist at Waterloo Comunity Counselling for 1.5 years and at the Brazilian Navy for 6 years.
