I'm an adult third-culture kid, recovering perfectionist, and adult child of a narcissistic parent .
Are you struggling with anxiety and fear around failure and taking risks? Has your self-worth become dependent on achievement? If your anxiety and perfectionism are keeping you from living the life you want, we may be a good fit. Together we will look at how you can change your relationship to your inner 'saboteur' or 'critic' without losing your motivation and ability to challenge yourself. I work with individuals who are experiencing anxiety and perfectionism around a wide range of life circumstances including at work, university, and about becoming parents. For more information about me and my approach, visit my website.

I usually begin with an online face-to-face consultation for me and parent (s) to talk about what's been going on, and what the hopes and aims of the whole family are.
Children and teenagers can benefit from counselling therapies, and studies show that these are hugely effective, both in the short and long term. For older kids and teens, talking therapy can provide a unique space to safely explore what's going on to make them sad, angry, or anxious. For younger children, using play and art, as well as talking therapy, can help them begin to piece together things that might be difficult for them. Life doesn't always go according to plan, and sometimes things happen that no one is prepared for - an accident, a traumatic experience, a situation no one could have foreseen happening.

I support issues such as anxiety, addictions, self-harming and Trauma, Depression, Parenting Concerns, Relationship Conflicts, gender and sexuality, and Self-Esteem….
Sometimes we experience changes or traumas that leave us struggling with the pressures of life, relationships, work, or studies. This can affect our self-esteem, our sense of identity, and our ability to cope. This can become overwhelming and may lead us to unhelpful or harmful thoughts and behaviours. With help, we can overcome our difficulties and learn to manage our emotions more effectively. With compassion, empathy, respect, and a safe space, we feel heard, considered, and valued. By understanding our thoughts and behaviours we can feel empowered to make positive changes that can lead us to fuller and more enjoyable lives.

School Counselling Packages Available including child, parent and teacher sessions.
Hello and thank you for looking into my profile. It can be challenging finding the right therapist amidst a sea of warm faces and shiny profiles full of experience. However, I firmly believe that like any relationship, the therapeutic one needs to feel like a 'good fit' too. This outlook forms the ethos of my therapy practice as a counselling psychologist where I work in collaboration with a client to bring change through the healing properties of a relationship. It is my belief that a supportive, accepting relationship allows for deeper self exploration and long-lasting change.

The range of psychological approaches I use include: Eye Movement Desensitisation & Reprocessing (EMDR) Compassion Focussed Therapy (CFT), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT) Mindfulness interventions, Solution Focused, Attachment Theory, Gentle Parenting .
I love working with people, getting to know you and hearing your story. I believe that we are all unique. One of the things I love most about my work is the privilege of seeing someone begin to thrive and to enjoy their life again. I love helping to find some inner calm, clarity of thought and to be practicing self compassion as part of their everyday lives. I work in a bespoke way, tailor making my approach to each person. However, that said, everyone's needs compassion and so a compassion focused therapy approach runs through all of my work. I am most definitely a human first and a psychologist second.

Accepting that we're finding things difficult is often the hardest part. Throughout every stage of life we can experience times when things don’t feel right and we struggle with our relationships, or to make sense of our thoughts, feelings and world around us. This can lead to us feeling anxious, overwhelmed and struggling to communicate.

Thank you for visiting my profile. You may be looking for help with a specific issue, looking for more purpose or clarity in life, more understanding about yourself or maybe you might be confused. Sometimes choosing a therapist can feel overwhelming and despite the qualifications and experience it can be more about finding the right fit between yourself and your therapist.

In my practice, I work with people who find it difficult to know and express what they want. I also work with clients who have experienced loss, trauma and displacement and therefore lack a sense of safety and belonging. I am experienced in working with people who find it challenging to regulate their emotions and fall into uncontrollable outbursts of confusion, anger, terror and worry. Finally, I specialise in working with individuals who struggle to form and sustain satisfying relationships and so suffer from feelings of worthlessness and emptiness.

Has your child anxiety? Sensory or motor issues? Struggles at school? Can you cope with these? Have you had any assessment and/without medication but it seems not to be enough? Your child might have ADHD, Dyslexia, development delay or something else, but solutions offered do not improve their quality of life? Primitive reflexes integration therapy can help. Neuroscience techniques are developing quickly nowadays, and therapies based on neuroplasticity stimulation are under science research giving great results.

Counselling is non-judgmental, does not tell you what to do, but it encourages you to seek out your own choices in life to become complete. There are many different therapeutic tools to help a person to communicate emotions, we can use creative materials, sand and art when verbal communication is tricky. I offer counselling face to face and online: via Zoom, WhatsApp, and FaceTime platforms, in English and Portuguese languages.
