Dr Gisele Caseiras
I am a psychotherapist working with children, adolescents, young people, parents, and families.
Sometimes it might feel overwhelming to look for a psychotherapist. You might have questions on how I work and how I can help you.
I use evidence-based psychotherapy to support my clients, and I use my knowledge in medicine, neuroscience, and mindfulness to inform my thinking.
Using empathy and compassion, I work with clients to understand their emotional difficulties so they can overcome them and think of new ways to relate to themselves, their relationships, and how you manage difficult emotions. I take into consideration the social and cultural context of my clients and keep in mind how the body and mind might influence each other.
I provide support by offering a confidential, compassionate, and individual approach that is unique to each person. I believe a committed use of evidence-based psychotherapy can relieve symptoms, improve self-esteem, and increase flexibility in managing problems and worries.
In addition to providing Psychotherapy, I also teach at a Master's program at The Tavistock Clinic, facilitating the Difference, Identity, and Diversity workshop.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have over 13 years of study, research, and practice. I have been working in the UK for four years. I have also lived and worked in Brazil and New York City. I am registered with The Tavistock Society of Psychotherapists (TSP) and the British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC).
I have worked in the charity and private sector, at primary schools and at an NHS multidisciplinary Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) team at the Tavistock and Portman Clinic, where she saw a wide range of young people and their families.
I am also a medical doctor specialized in Radiology with a deep interest in Neuroimaging. I have a PhD in Neuroscience and Neuroimaging from the Institute of Neurology, University College London (UCL), a Masters in Psychological Therapies, and a Postgraduate in Child, Adolescent and Family Mental Wellbeing, both from The Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust.
Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
British Psychoanalytic Council

The organisation is itself made up of fourteen member organisations and BPC accredits the trainings of its member organisations. An individual who qualifies from one of these trainings is then eligible for entry into the BPC's register.
BPC registrants are governed by a code of ethics, a policy of continuing professional development, a statement on confidentiality and a complaints procedure.

Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Areas of counselling I deal with
Free initial online session
Fees are payable by BACS transfer either per session or monthly for open-ended work.
Sessions are usually at the same time and on the same day each week.
I see clients online or in person.
I offer open-ended or time-limited psychotherapy. Open-ended therapy gives the client time to reflect on multiple aspects of their lives. Time-limited therapy can range from 10 - 20 sessions and can be used to focus on a specific difficulty you might be facing.
