I am a Counsellor and Psychotherapist with many years experience with depression, anxiety, trauma, relational trauma, abuse, family issues/conflicts, relationship issues and isolation.
I speak three languages English, Portuguese (Brazil).
How we can work together:
Do you have a particular life obstacle you’re trying to overcome? Do you feel you'd like to have better relationship with people around you? We all have a moment in our lives when we may feel hard to connect with those around us and its impact in our lives may feel hard to manage. At times you may also struggle to connect with yourself. Lack of connection can feel isolating, depressing and anxiety provoking. Sometimes, seeking help from a non-judgemental professional is the best way to put things into perspective. As a committed and experienced Psychotherapist in London, your emotional and psychological wellbeing is my number one priority. The main focus of our work will be defined by you and centred in your needs. My role is of a companion in your personal journey to support your emotional exploration and growth.
Counselling & Psychotherapy:
Individual counselling or psychotherapy are very powerful ways to develop awareness and understanding of what may afflicting you.
During the sessions you would have a non-judgemental and safe space to explore your feelings, anguishes and conflicts.
Together we would agree on what you would like to focus on and follow your pace.

I am registered with the BACP and HCPC and abide to their codes of conduct and ethics.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
