About me

I am a dedicated and experienced Psychologist and Psychotherapist with over 25 years of clinical experience.

I can offer short and long-term therapy to clients.  I trained as a Clinical Psychologist and as a Psychotherapist in São Paulo, Brazil and had the opportunity to develop my professional career within the mental health and psychiatric fields.

I had my knowledge base, skills and experience updated in the USA and in the UK when I retrained as a psychodynamic counsellor and clinical supervisor. 

I have worked in a variety of settings including the voluntary, private and educational sectors.

I am a lecturer in Higher education, supervising, assessing, teaching and training future counsellors, therapists and social workers.  I am a supervisor of MA students' research dissertations, and I supervise students' clinical work through clinical management seminars.

I am also a clinical supervisor of groups and individuals.
