Call me now!
Are you curious about me?
Please remember you can call me for a free brief phone conversation. Call me Alda. I love helping young people find healing, meaning and direction so that they can change the world.
When I was a teenager, I used to be called utopian, idealist, naïve. The reason? I thought that love could change people's hearts and the world. It was a naïve idea and, if you are reading this, you know things are not quite that simple. But intuitively I already knew the power of love and human presence for healing and transformation. It took me almost 20 years to find a career path that really fitted me. Becoming a therapist has been the biggest gift of my life. I started to do what I've always dreamt to do: changing the world.
You might think I sound even more naïve than when I was a teenager. Well, that might be true, but I don't think so. My life experience taught me how to love properly and now I can offer you my presence and love, and also my knowledge of neuroscience and psychotherapeutic theories, my expertise in trauma, and many years working with mindful Eastern practices and energy tools. There is no better recipe to help you see yourself anew, and consequently change the world around you, and make a difference.

I use theories and techniques from the following therapy approaches
Person-centred Approach & Psychodynamic Theories
It respects your autonomy and trusts your inner wisdom. They can help me understand you better and give you a helping hand when you feel stuck. I can then offer suggestions for you to become unstuck.
Your nervous system is constantly sending you messages. Wouldn't it be great if you could understand its language? The polyvagal theory is the most recent discovery in the field, and helps you understand that your reactions are your biology "talking", not your "evilish" intentions.
As you talk, energy tools can help you release stagnant tensions created by past trauma or unresolved emotions in an easy and effective way. Sometimes we may even have some laughs! At the moment, I work with EFT and AIT, but I currently training in other modalities.
I am an expert in trauma. We all experience difficulties (trauma) during our lifetime. I will briefly and simply explain to you how trauma works and transforms your biology as a smart way to survive these difficulties. You will start appreciating your strengths and using other strategies.
Working with a trauma expert, you will feel safe to go wherever you need to.
Your emotions are imprinted in your body. Body sensations will explain to you how you feel. By paying attention to your body sensation, you will get information otherwise unavailable. I am a very experienced therapist working with body awareness. I will also invite you to move if that feels right to you.
I am such a curious person that I read many books and learnt many techniques, incl. introduction to IFS, sandtray, LGBTQ+, diversity and race. I am currently undertaking a Diploma in Energy Psychotherapy.
