Being Well Together/Think Talk Together

I am a Counsellor licensed by The South African College of Applied Psychology in Cape Town, South Africa since 2012. I register with the Nacional Counselling Society as Accredited Member and adhere to the Ethical Code established by the NCS, as well as the Professional. I am a motivated person, who has a passion for improving the lives of people by helping them deal with any difficulties they may face. My style is Holistic Integrative/Humanistic Counselling and Person-Center.
Holistic Counseling is an approach which helps clients to heal by taking the entire human being and their life experiences into consideration for assessment and treatment purposes. In other words, where traditional counseling methods consider the psychological ramifications of issues and behaviors; holistic counseling assesses and treats from physical and spiritual contexts--as well as a psychological or mental one.

As a true professional, I am committed to delivering the highest standards of care and achieving the best results. I possess substantial qualification experience of providing counselling services to clients and am fully confident in my ability to use a wide range of Counselling Approaches to suit different client needs. I am specialized in emotional guidance, crisis and trauma of Adults, Young Adults and their families. During my career to date, I have worked on a variety of international youth projects and private practice service delivery, using Holistic methods including one-to-one and group workshops.

Working internationally has allowed me to embrace and learn from diverse cultures and beliefs, together with utilizing my fluent language skills in English, Portuguese
