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