Training, qualifications and experience

I trained as psychologist in Coimbra at one of the best Universities in Portugal. I then trained in London and obtained a qualification in counselling, a Masters in counselling psychology and completed a Postgraduate Degree in Counselling Psychology at City University London. Following from that I obtained a Doctorate in Counselling Psychology focusing on relationships, attachment and sexuality. Throughout those years I continued seeing clients on a regular basis.
