Regardless of our background we all go through difficult moments in our lives, leaving us overwhelmed and often struggling with feelings that may be hard to understand. It could be because life events are hard to overcome, or you feel exploited and disempowered and would like that to change. Maybe you are sexually unfulfilled or dealing with sexual problems. It could be that you want to build the confidence to come out of the closet or just to find your sexual self and enjoy the intimacy you desire in your romantic relationships. Whatever the reason is that brings you to this point - it is ok to look for someone to talk to.
It would be my pleasure to guide you in the work you wish to do. I am a compassionate listener and like to think of myself as a warm, straight forward person. I work empathetically and passionately to help you find meaning and purpose, to become more congruent and attuned as well as help you solve sexual issues and enjoy more intimacy in your relationships.
My practice is mainly Person-Centred. I have adapted my work to incorporate elements of Solution-Focused Brief Therapy and from the Existential approach. For more information take a look at my website: http://amf-counsellingandpsychotherapy.co.uk, alternatively feel free to call me for an informal chat, no strings attached!
Independentemente das nossas origens todos passamos por momentos difíceis, atingidos pelo desespero, sobrecarga emocional e por vezes ficamos a braços com Ansiedade e Depressão. Talvez seja que nada pareça correr bem, esteja a viver situações dolorosas, ou se sinta explorado/a e desempoderado/a e gostava que isso mudasse. Quiçá esteja a viver um periodo de desilusão, inquietação e precise encontrar significado para a vida. Pode ser que gostasse de trabalhar a sua confiança para atingir a intimidade que deseja para os seus relacionamentos amorosos. Seja qual for a razão que o/a trouxe aqui, procurar ajuda é a decisão mais acertada!
Seria um prazer para mim oferecer-lhe a ajuda e orientação que precisa para a sua situação e possibilitar-lhe encontrar as soluções que procura. Eu sou uma ouvinte qualificada, atenta e paciente. Gosto de pensar que sou uma terapeuta direta mas calorosa, trabalhando de uma forma profissional dedicada a ajudá-lo/a a atingir os seus objectivos.
O meu trabalho é baseado na teoria Humanistica, em particular a Terapia Centrada na Pessoa com a qual incorporo elementos de Terapia Breve Focada em Soluções e também de Terapia Existencial. O sexo, a sexualidade e a prevenção do abuso sexual são também áreas da minha especialidade, para a qual estou a frequentar o 2º ano de Mestrado em Terapia Psicosexual.
