Variety of support
Hi, I’m Flavia F Calixto. I have 20 years experience in counselling and psychotherapy, and have worked with adults, young people and children in my private practice in Brazil e UK.
I am a qualified Psychologist graduated in 2002 in Brazil and a Psychotherapist in the UK. I belong to the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy Society UK (BACP). This means that I abide by their ethical framework while working as an Integrative Therapist and that I undertake frequent CPD and receive regular supervision to make sure my work is clinically safe.
I have worked with people of all ages and backgrounds and can help you with a variety of concerns. My clients tell me that I am warm, insightful and understanding.
My practice draws on a relationally and integrative approach, focusing on the therapeutic relationship while we work together.
I also have knowledge of EMDR, Brainspotting, Bioenergetics Analyses and Trauma Informed Practice and may draw on those should they be relevant to our work together.
