Professional Counsellor and Pyschotherapist
Some thoughts and feelings may become too much for one person only. As a counsellor, I’ll work with you to help you to make progress and learn to live in the present moment. This will enable you to manage your feelings and emotions, and shape your future.

My Training as a Counsellor and Psychotherapist
I am an accredited, registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and I can offer counselling and psychotherapy sessions in both English and Portuguese, and can understand French.
I am experienced in supporting adults of all ages, whether you are 18 and at university, or over 50 and dealing with issues that can affect all of us in middle age.
I also have a BA and a MA in Languages, Literatures and Translation and Interpreting.
