I graduated from a BACP Accredited Institution, - LC&CTA - where I also received an Outstanding Personal Development Award. My Research Project on ‘Depression’ was chosen to be presented at the BACP Annual Conference.
The approach I offer is of an integrative nature and it is totally dependent on the needs of my clients. A psychotherapist, in my opinion, needs to be a skilled craftsman, ‘sensing’ the client and offering what they better respond to. My areas of study are: Humanistic, Psychodynamic, CBT and Existential. I currently provide counselling services to MIND – a large Mental Health Charity in the UK - as well as seeing clients privately. In recent years I have worked with BAME (Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic) Organisation – NAZ, assisting clients with issues related to sexual health. I am BACP Registered and adhere strictly to their Ethical Framework. Prior to working as a counsellor/psychotherapist, I obtained a degree in Law and a Masters in Business Administration, having worked in the corporate field for over 25 years.
I conduct therapy in either English or Portuguese.
‘Everything in my life changed a lot since I had the sessions with you. I am not the same. The clarity within me has changed a lot, and for my own good. I feel strong, I am strong. Today I feel like in construction, in movement, learning every day. I am capable of making mistakes and of forgiving, mainly myself, to start over again. My inner child deserves a new chance, a new opportunity, and all my attention and my love. Life is beautiful and every day we have a new chance to make it prettier and better. Happiness is within ourselves and peace is only a state of living. Once again, thank you.' Female, in her late forties
'Our sessions helped me a lot. I got to know myself better and changed my visions about life in general. Be certain that I will take everything with me for all my life, in truth, I already do. You understood me. Thank you for helping me turn into a better person.' Young Male
‘My sessions with Bruno were transformative. I felt I have evolved from a caterpillar to butterfly and am ready to fly. Life turned 180 degrees and now I can recognise me as the Being I Am. I apply everyday what I've discovered during the sessions and if I could, I would keep having them as they were so important throughout my life. Thank you very much, from the bottom of my heart.’ Male, in his late thirties
