I specialized in treating adults with depression and anxiety issues, as well as difficulties with relationships and other areas of life that can be affected by those ailments. I aim to tailor my treatment approach to each individual’s specific needs.
I am a qualified Psychologist graduated since 2002 in São Paulo – Brazil and Psychotherapist in London – UK accredited of BPS – British Psychological Society UK.
I primarily work from integrative psychology, humanistic and Psychodrama techniques, working with individuals and groups therapy.
Utilizing techniques taken from within those frameworks, I work closely with my patients to develop strategies to improve self-awareness and acceptance and promote positive lasting changes.
I have had prepared a cozy space where you are invited to speak about psychological, existential and emotional issues of concern in a confidential, supportive and facilitating environment to someone who really listens.
The techniques I use in psychotherapy derive from my experiences acquired in Brazil, whilst in there I was able to consolidate my learning in psychodrama practices allowing me to assist in re-setting the individuals old beliefs transforming it in new answers. Psychodrama facilitates insight, personal growth, and integration on cognitive, affective, and behavioral levels. It clarifies issues, increases physical and emotional well being, enhances learning and develops new skills.
I am Facilitator and therapist of Access Bars Consciousness technique also. This treatment is suitable for anyone who wants to experience and create new possibilities in life.
I believe my eclectic background allows me to establish a strong working alliance with people from all walks of life and makes it possible for me to attune to the particularities and universality of desire, love, pain, suffering, shame, guilt, regret and loneliness as they manifest in family constellations and cultural/socioeconomic contexts. Above all, I am deeply committed to making psychotherapy accessible to people who would never otherwise be able to consider talking therapies.
