HOW CAN COUNSELLING HELP ME?

Counselling is much more than just to share your worries or to try to find out the source of your problems. With Counselling, you will develop and put to practice new skills and tools, in an empathic environment, starting the change process right from session one.

Counselling is a short term therapy. The client learns and develops more efficient strategies to deal with his/her problems. This task is not fulfilled just by the counsellor; in fact, it is a “team” counsellor/client work.  That way, most issues are overcome in just a few months, even serious situations, as deep depression or burnout.
Counselling is a path of discovery and change, through a holistic approach. It is a practical help to solve your problem or reach your goal.

ABOUT ME

With my intuition and passion for helping people and more than twenty years of experience working with emotional issues, I train my clients to become more efficient in solving their problems and achieving the welfare they so wish.

I studied Counselling in the Institute of Counselling, Glasgow and in the Australian Institute of Professional Counsellors, Sydney. I founded LisboaCounselling in 2011, the first and so far only counselling agency in Portugal.

I work with clients who wish to have an active role in solving their personal or interpersonal problems, through a training of new skills. This enables them to achieve change in a short time, thus allowing them to be satisfied just with their problem’s resolution or to keep working to reach deeper levels of development and self-fulfilment.

In companies, I work with executives and leaders in individual sessions and I do workshops and seminars for groups in such areas as stress reduction, burnout prevention and mindfulness.

I’m involved in volunteer work, training and supervising teams that help people in several areas such as problematic children and teenagers and projects of social and professional reinsertion in risk groups.

I’m part of MemberCare Portugal team since its begining, in 2014.

I’m the author of two books and I regularly write articles addressing different issues on the Counselling field.

TESTIMONIALS

STRESS

“I am a teacher who moved from an English speaking country. Teaching is a stressful thing, and to add to it learning Portuguese and teaching in Portuguese was even more stressful. I started meeting with Mena with physical issues I was having that were stress and anxiety related. She was able to help me with this situation and deal with relieving my stress. I am very thankful for the help she was able to give me in a very practical way.”
 
TITUS

ANXIETY

“What brought me to Lisbon Counselling was my encounter with Anxiety. Filomena helped me understand Anxiety, and gave me crucial tools to deal with it by understanding my personal triggers and reactions to it. Now, I know how to prevent it on my own, allowing me to control its appearance, rather than being controlled by it. Anxiety is no longer a problem in my life.”

LOST

“When I finished my master’s degree I started to feel completely lost. I couldn’t decide what to do next. A gap year travelling around the world? Keep studying? Start to work? There were too many options and I was getting very anxious.
Mena helped me to find peace in my soul and to start designing my new path.”
