I'm Cátia Castro, clinical psychologist. For me, psychology is something of the past, present and future, a passion for the human potential, in what can be created and developed. In psychology, I consider the relationship a key point, through empathetic listening, support, where something new expands and develops. Giving a name to what one feels, giving it sense and meaning, through an articulated understanding, my objective is to help you re-elaborate thoughts, trying to overcome difficulties, building resilience, with the purpose of your well-being and the quality of your relationships.
I like to learn and so I look for a constant knowledge updating, through readings, training courses, congresses and lectures, as well as supervision. Has a registered psychologist (and EuroPsy registered) the Code of Ethics of the Order of the Portuguese Psychologists is part of the principles that guide my professional practice. I developed my professional career in the field of clinical psychology at the Hospital de Santa Maria and Hospital Garcia de Orta. In private practice, online and on location, I have been practising clinical psychology, psychological assessment and psychotherapy consultations with children, teenagers and adults. I'm also specialized in the area of legal / forensic psychology, having provided technical assistance to the courts, both civil and criminal areas.
Relational Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy is an ongoing specialization, where the theoretical and practical basis are cornerstones in my clinical practice.
