Ms L Baretto De Souza Integrative Psychotherapy MBACP, Mindfulness Teacher
As an Integrative Therapist, I use different modalities to fit my clients needs, learning curves and communications styles, personality and state of mind. I also adapt to fit my clients ‘physical health, integrating body and mind work within the process of change.
I have been working as a Psychotherapist since 2004 and I am a Mindfulness Practitioner. As well as running my private practice, I work for the Priory in Hove (now Elysium Healthcare) within both the Cognitive Behavioural team and within the Addiction Treatment team. I have helped people through a wide range of issues using a variety of tools and methods to fit each person's ways of being. I believe that we are all different and also that we all have a lot in common.
