«Grüezi & Hello». I am happy that you found my profile - welcome. Do you sometimes feel, that despite great effort, you are somehow not getting where you would like to? Entangled fears, old beliefs, or past trauma have a major impact on your life? I want to let you know: You are not alone in this. Being human is often anything but easy.
Hello and congrats on making this first step. Your openness to learn more about yourself, to invite change or wanting to heal is already half the job done. So, good on you! What my clients share is their intention to better know and own themselves. Does that resonate with you? Do you also long for more ownership, self-empowerment and clarity in your life? Wonderful. Wherever you find yourself on your journey is fully welcomed, whether you feel anxious or carry painful trauma, or whether you already feel rooted and wish to further reach your potential – I look forward to meeting you right where you are today.
I offer psychological counseling and intervention to children, adolescents, and adults in English and Portuguese. A space for personal growth aimed at promoting well-being and enhancing coping strategies for situations such as anxiety, depressive mood, interpersonal issues, low self-esteem, adapting to changes, among others.
I help people restore the connection between their mind, body, and heart through revealing journeys into the subconscious to heal what is hidden away. To live this one life on earth with ease, as the person you truly are, and with a heart-filling sense of purpose and wholeness. I provide a compassionate and safe space for inner exploration and healing.
I always learn from the teens, young adults & families I’ve worked with, but this is most important for me to remember: Even behaviors that may appear ineffective from the outside looking in, usually have wisdom at their core. When a person is in pain, they generally want to feel better. My clients all come to therapy because what they’ve been doing to feel better ultimately isn’t working any longer. We work together to address what’s at the core of their pain & focus on managing that more effectively, without negative repercussions. We will together build a set of skills to help them feel more empowered & effective in their life.
I am a philosophical counselor with more than ten years' experience consulting in Italy, Switzerland, and the US. I've worked in the sexuality program at the California Institute for Integral Studies. My aim as a counselor is to enable you to "think through" compelling questions, decisions in your life to gain a greater sense of personal freedom, ethical clarity, and a sense of renewed vitality. In this work I draw upon my advanced training in classical and continental philosophy: my PhD in philosophy was completed at Sorbonne in Paris, and my philosophical consulting was completed in New York
We experience difficulties in different ways. Often people seek therapy when they have been feeling feeling more anxious, stressed or frustrated more than usual, sometimes indicating a life transition such as relationship problems or difficulties at work. At other times clients get in touch when they noticed that something does not feel good but are still unsure of the reasons that may lie beneath and are keen to develop insight. We will build a shared understanding of current difficulties, and together will identify your hopes, goals and needsI draw from psychological evidence-based approaches to inform your unique treatment plan.
Welcome. I am a BACP registered psychodynamic psychotherapist with experience of working for the NHS as an honorary psychotherapist and also in private practice in London and Switzerland. I offer open-ended and short-term therapy both in person and online.
Have overwhelming events of the past marked your relationships with yourself and the world? Does your present life context trigger difficult emotional reactions, interpersonal or professional challenges? Do you suffer from lingering mental health issues and want to improve your wellbeing? Therapy can provide a safe trasformational opportunity to explore and heal what is difficult in your life. My role is to offer you a confidential and non-judgmental space for understanding, processing and learning how to manage unresolved, often conflicting feelings, thoughts and actions which impact quality of your life and relationships.
“Unexpressed emotions will never die. They are buried alive and will come forth later in uglier ways.” Sigmund Freud. I would like to invite you to a safe space of a co-created relationship, where you can talk without being judged, make meaning of what you have been going through, and co-discover this meaning in free association. I am trained in contemporary psychoanalysis, gestalt and expressive arts therapies as well as crisis interventions.
Hi. I am a Psychological Counselor, relationship counselor, sexotherapist and dementia therapist. I am also a Cross-Cultural Psychological Counsellor. I hold a UK PhD degree in the Applied Psychology of Dementia. I also hold a UK based Advanced Cognitive Behavioral Diploma (CBT). My work experience was obtained by working extensively with patients experiencing emotional problems ( including: anxiety, depression, dementia) within UK NHS psychiatric hospitals. My psychological-counsellor experience also covered life-styles including: couple therapy, sex therapy counselling teenagers and racial-related/Cross-Cultural issues.
We can all find life uncertain and overwhelming at times. Sometimes a crisis arises that feels unresolvable without professional help, or maybe events from the past weigh on us for no apparent reason. I have found the most common reasons to seek psychotherapy are related to depression, stress, anxiety, challenges with eating, and relationship problems. Experience shows that our psyche is able to bring itself back into balance and heal itself, given the right circumstances. Therapy provides a supportive environment to discuss such concerns, explore underlying causes and strengthen our ability to make desired life changes.
My therapeutic approach is a blend of neurobiology, Polyvagal Theory, and attachment oriented psychotherapy with somatic approaches. I believe that a collaborative and trusting relationship is the foundation of effective therapy. My goal in my therapeutic work is to create a space where clients feel safe, accepted, and supported to be curious and explore any and all aspects of themselves and their lives.
There are always times in life when insecurities, fears or a crisis can occur. In these times it can be helpful to clarify arising questions in an individual setting. It is my intention to offer psychological support in difficult times, while also highlighting your personal strengths and resources.
At different times in life we may encounter both external and internal difficulties and the psyche talks to us in various ways: sometimes through symptoms of insomnia or depression, anxiety or recurring thoughts, feelings of emptiness and despair - sometimes through inner questions of meaning, an urge to know more and wish to find our place. We may be confronted with personal dilemmas that seem unlikely to be solved, and feel trapped or imprisoned. Jungian psychotherapy is a journey to find the roots of such difficulties, to better understand the meaning underlying our suffering and to help integrate these insights into our life.
I am an enthusiastic, energetic and reliable individual with a wealth of experiences combined with appropriate qualifications who has been supporting individuals through general, complex and diverse issues they may experience. I believe in creative yet simple ways to bring out positive emotional, social and cognitive changes in people. I have a diverse and comprehensive educational background from the University of Adelaide and Delhi (India). I have current police checks, all my DCSI screenings. Providing E-Counselling to Asians and Indians. In one sentence, encouraging self care, positivity and mental health is my life’s passion.
However unwell you might feel in this very moment: things can become better. Being healthy - both physically and mentally - is a process, not something solid or given. In your work with me, we will draw on this part of you that is already and ultimately healthy. My goal is to give you the space, encouragement and professional support you need to find your ways to cope with your life’s challenges. Together, we take the time to explore what is difficult, pain- and stressful for you with the major goal to identify and strengthen your inner resources, enabling you to understand, overcome, and outgrow what keeps you down at the minute.
I provide a uniquely safe, ethical, and confidential space dedicated to your relationships, for individuals and couples. Life has its ups and downs in relationships and right now you're feeling the pain. You may have been hurting for some time and holding it in; perhaps something new has happened to disturb or upset you emotionally and psychologically. You need to talk confidentially, to someone you can trust with all that's going on; someone who'll listen, be beside you, and support you in finding a way through; someone who's highly qualified and experienced in holding and helping heal what troubles you.

As a counsellor, coach, and teacher, I go that extra mile to ensure that my clients receive empathetic and effective interventions. I take a person-centered approach to psychological counselling, so as to understand the needs of each unique human being.
