Raphaela Fontenelle

Trainee psychotherapist, trainee member of UKCP

Hello and welcome! I initially qualified as a Clinical Psychologist in Brazil, where I was born and raised. In the UK, I am currently training as a Gestalt Psychotherapist, so I currently offer low-cost therapy sessions for adults.

Therapy is a process of growth and self-discovery. My approach as a therapist is warm, gentle, and empathic, as, before anything, I think it is important that my clients feel safe and supported. I offer to walk this journey beside you, helping to untangle thoughts and feelings that have been forgotten, shut down, or unseen.

Being a foreigner in the UK and having lived in different countries (Brazil, France and Canada), I can offer a multi-cultural, open-minded and non-judgmental approach. I currently work in the NHS and in private practice. I have experience working with anxiety, depression, trauma, grief, aging, abusive relationships, miscarriage, and HIV, amongst other themes.

If you would like to have an initial session and discuss your reasons for seeking therapy and goals, please reach out. Therapy is always a good starting point!

  • I work with weekly individual sessions, online or face-to-face

  • I can speak English, Portuguese or French

  • I am a member of the British Psychological Society (BPS), the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP), and the United Kingdom Association of Gestalt Practitioners (UKAGP)

Appointments currently available: weekdays early mornings and evenings

Fees: £45 per session
