Life can be extremely challenging.
At times, it might feel so overwhelming and distressing that you may find it hard to be functional in your daily life. At times, it might be even harder if you are facing great challenges and living in a foreign country simultaneously.
I am a qualified and experienced Psychologist based in Lisbon, Portugal. I have also lived abroad, in the United Kingdom, for two years. In London I have studied a MSc Mental Health: Psychological Therapies at Queen Mary University of London and done my internship at Kids Company, an Organisation that supports vulnerable children and parents from cultural minorities. With these families, and also through my own experience there, I understood how demanding it can be to acculturate yourself in an unfamiliar country.
Therapeutic sessions can be particularly beneficial if you are struggling, as they make you find your own solutions and direction and, thus, ease the way you feel. Moreover, therapy also plays a great role in your personal development, since it promotes a deeper understanding of yourself, your difficulties, your feelings, thoughts and needs. According to Positive Psychology a healthier, more fulfilling and positive life can be reached when you identify and develop your full potential.
If you are currently living in Portugal and would like to have your or your child’s therapeutic process in English, in a safe, non-judgemental, professional and confidential environment, you may do so in here – we offer individual therapy for adults, adolescents and children.
Therapeutic sessions provided to you or your teenage son/daughter can take place either at our clinical setting, online (over Skype) or at your own home, depending on your needs and limits. Skype services are not accessible for children, as lively interaction is crucial in their process.

Are you indecisive whether you should see a therapist, considering the situation you are going through?
It is normal that you question yourself about that. Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will be very happy to answer, without any commitment. This is a free and confidential service.
