"There is no mind without body and world,
no mind without other people."
I am a psychologist with a specialization in both Clinical Psychology and Educational Psychology, as well as an advanced specialization in Vocational Psychology and Career Development, accredited by the Order of Portuguese Psychologists (Ordem dos Psicólogos Portugueses OPP #10700).
Over the last 9 years, I have been working at the Psychological Counseling Unit of the University of Madeira [Serviço de Psicologia da Universidade da Madeira].
One of the principal areas of work is counseling/psychotherapy interventions.
Furthermore, I am responsible for developing activities aimed at promoting psychological well-being, and personal development of University students and employees.
Additionally, I have collaborated for the development of mobile technology for supporting student’s mental health and academic success. The utilization of new technologies and other tools, as bibliotherapy, into understanding better how to promote mental health and psychological well-being is essential for my further research and development.
