Life can present us with challenges that can feel unsurmountable. To assist in overcoming these ‘issues with life’, I provide a relational, nurturing environment where clients are listened to and empowered to follow their own path.

I am a qualified psychodynamic therapist with a strong relational stance. My own diverse background and varied professional history in educational and supportive roles has prepared me to engage with clients on a wide range of issues without judgment or preconceptions, a stance that has benefited my clients since 2019.

My practice is influenced by a life-long interest in Existential and Jungian therapies and by my considerable experience with energy therapy, having amassed over 1,000 hours of energy therapy practice in the Tollcross Community Healing Group. This attunement to subtler dynamics enables me to tap into my clients’ deeply-held emotions and create a nurturing environment where they can express their whole self and begin to thrive. I can also adopt a variety of creative and spiritual approaches, depending on the individual needs and inclinations of each client.

I offer both brief and long term individual therapy in weekly 50-minute sessions, and couples therapy in either 1-hour or 1.5-hour sessions. In addition to offering therapy in English and Portuguese, I also have a firm grasp of French, Italian and Spanish, which allows for a deeper exploration of my clients’ experiences in their own languages.

As a member of BACP, and in accordance with their code of practice and ethical code, I have regular supervision and am committed to Continuous Professional Development. Areas of interest and further development currently includetherapeutic body work/ movement and a whole-self approach to ADHD.
