My name is Pedro Oliveira and I am a PhD clinical psychologist with work experience in Portugal and the UK (NHS/Tavistock Clinic/WLMHT). I'm registered with the Portuguese Order of Psychologists and my reference number is 16126. Having recently come back to Portugal, I am trying to start a private practice directed at English speakers. I understand there are places where to advertise one's services, such as this website, yet before making choices about advertising, I would like the help of the community with some questions:
1. Do you see the relevance of a service of psychotherapy directed at the English-Speaking community in Portugal? Why?
2. Beyond traditional advertising, what other ways would you go about it to make this service known?
3. Have you found a good enough answer from Portuguese services (public or private) regarding mental health issues? (anxiety, depression, etc.). If not, what was missing? What could be improved?
Any help that you can give me on these topics by answering here or to my email address is strongly appreciated (email@example.com
). All answers sent my way will be dealt with confidentially.
Thanking everyone in advance,
