Clarisse Sampaio - BA (Hons) and MBACP member
Sometimes life can be difficult to cope with and saying what’s in our minds can be even harder. You may feel empty, hopeless or even depressed. Counselling can help you to talk about your worries and deal with what is causing your emotional pain. My aim is to offer you a relaxed, warm and non-judgmental space where you feel at ease to talk, and together understand the root of your problems, thereby finding solutions towards a happier life.
The modality of my practice is based on Person-Centred approach but I have also trained in Transactional Analysis (TA) and use it on an integrative way. I believe that the individual has the power and autonomy to direct their own life and the counsellor’s role is to facilitate this self-discovery. I have experience in a range of issues including depression, anxiety, trauma, hardship, relationships, loss, grief and other issues. I also have experience in preparing and delivering workshops to bereaved children and teenagers, also one-to-one counselling.
In addition to the above, I can offer therapeutic counselling in fluent Portuguese and conversational Spanish.
