Life is a story we tell ourselves.
A lived experience of our memories, behaviours and relationships with others and the world. Sometimes we find ourselves reliving parts of the story over and over again and it can become painful.
We can feel stuck not knowing what to change. Many times, we learn these stories in childhood and then get caught in negative loops as adults. Therapy is a place to reflect, understand and change the part of the story that causes us pain.
It can be difficult and lonely when we are stuck in a loop. I will sit with you, as your therapist, while we explore your story together in a safe non-judgmental space. We will dream a new path that honours your needs. Practicing new story lines that positively change your life.

Congratulations to YOU on taking this step, it shows your self-awareness and care. As a next step, I offer you free 20 minute Zoom session to explore how therapy with myself might be of use to you. This may offer you space to connect and see how you feel with me without a financial cost. The highest success factor for therapy is feeling comfortable and connected with your therapist - that they are someone you trust.
Bem vindo se voce fala Portugues! I work as a multi-lingual and ethnic psychotherapist.
About me: My pronouns are she/her. My therapy practice is rooted in science and research. I use neuroscience and body-based trauma research to support a safe processing of emotions. Talking therapy is scientifically proven to have positive physical impact on your brain, body and overall mental health. Like a good physical workout, therapy can also be a place to maintain your mental health. It is also tailored to you.
I tailor my counselling skills to YOUR uniqueness which is integrative counselling. The ultimate goal is that you find a story line that allows you to be yourself, your true self. Honouring and owning your story in life.
I look forward to connecting with you and go gently.
Like all UKCP registered psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors I can work with a wide range of issues, but here are some areas in which I have a special interest or additional experience.
