About

Are you going through a difficult period in your life and/or feel that you would like to develop a better understanding about yourself in order to overcome personal challenges? I offer you a confidential space of trust, empathy & respect, where you can bring issues that concern you, unlock unhelpful patterns, find relief & be empowered. Difficult periods may include life-changing circumstances, change of jobs, separation, family issues, going through loss or coping with illness. Sometimes feelings of anger, sadness, fear, demotivation may appear without reason. The exploration of these in therapy may help & enable positive change.
I integrate my knowledge of psychology and art psychotherapy in order to best support you according to your needs. I work with the therapeutic relational dynamics & unconscious manifestations to help you increase awareness, grow and heal. I use creative mediums to enable you express feelings that are hard to put into words and I also offer talking sessions.
I believe that as life happens there are moments of ups & downs. I believe that everyone deserves a holding hand, a smile & a caring gesture. I believe in feeling, reflecting, thinking, expressing & transforming. I don't see my work as one of fixing people's problems & I focus on facilitating your journey and development through a joint creative process.
A Arte Psicoterapia pode ser benefica para si se estiver a passar por um momento dificil na sua vida e/ou sinta que gostaria de desenvolver um maior conhecimento sobre si mesmo/a de forma a resolver desafios pessoais, encontrar equilibrio e satisfacao. Periodos dificeis podem incluir transicoes significativas na vida, mudanca de emprego, separacao, perda, luto, ou situacoes de doenca. Por vezes podem surgir sentimentos de zanga, tristeza profunda, medo ou desmotivacao, sem razao aparente, e o explorar destes em terapia pode ajudar e facilitar mudanca positiva. Se sente que o/a posso ajudar, ofereco sessoes online e por telefone.
Com conhecimento de diferentes teorias psicologicas e tecnicas terapeuticas, a minha abordagem 'e ecletica e integrativa. Diferentes meios expressivos e tecnicas ajudam variadas pessoas, dependendo das suas necessidades. O meu trabalho segue as correntes de Arte Psicoterapia, Psicodinamica, Jungiana e Sistemica e baseia-se em evidencias da Neurociencia.
Eu acredito que na vida ha altos e baixos. Eu acredito que todos merecem uma mao de apoio, um sorriso e um gesto de carinho. Eu acredito em sentir, reflectir, pensar, expressar e na cura. Nao vejo o meu trabalho como uma solucao para os problemas das pessoas, e foco-me em facilitar o seu crescimento e desenvolvimento numa colaboracao criativa.
