I am a fully qualified and registered Dramatherapist, whose life, academic and professional experiences have taken me from Lisbon, to Washington DC, New York, Glasgow, and now London.
I am deeply inspired and motivated by human connection and interaction, and have been supporting and mentoring others in various capacities for 11 years. I have recently opened a private practice, which aims to bring together my work with individuals and orgaisations, and to focus on four core principles: Emotional Integration, Self-Compassion, Post-traumatic Growth, and Interdependent Relationships.
By using the different areas of inspiration and theory of different disciplines - performance, psychology, anthropology, and spirituality - I aim to find harmony and authenticity between and within the physical, psychological, and emotional needs of each individual.
