Feminine consciousness is a quality that holds the complementarity within duality, honours cyclicity and commits to developing constructive resources for each challenge, be it individual or collective.
We are living in a crucial time where the transformation of structures, beliefs and behaviours is a necessity, both within and around us.
By fostering the nourishing, caregiving, empathic and sensitive aspects of our psyches to be expressed is a pathway of profound connection to ourselves, our communities and the Living Earth.
Mother, Woman, mammal, pilgrim and caregiver of the wild places.
Somatic Experiencing trauma therapist, somatic movement educator, doula, herbalist, artist, author, iberian healer, recollector of iberian and proto-celtic traditional, medicinal, artistic and shamanic wisdom.
Researcher of the intricate relation between body, Earth and the Sacred through animism, ecology, psychology and physiology.
Tendering to the fertile places of Earth and Body, soil and soul, through movement, therapy, ritual and teaching. Nourishing sensitive presence, active listening, conscious observation and weaving connection.
My base education is contemporary literature and dramaturgy, contemporary dance, traditional north african and middle eastern dance.
Additionally, I am trained in Somatic Experiencing trauma therapy, doula, yoga, permaculture, traditional, medicinal and shamanic herbalism.
I have been a shamanic researcher and practitioner for over two decades, focusing on Iberian and proto-celtic animism, archaic eco mythology, traditional and medicinal Portuguese paganism.
Presently I teach and offer therapy in Portugal and the UK.
In Sintra I co-founded the colective Senhora d’Azenha, which holds two spaces: Casa do Bosque ( center for herbalism and eco-spirituality in São Pedro de Sintra) and Hearth ( art, therapy and holistic education studio in Colares). I am part of the project Remembering the bones).

Woman, Mother, Sister, Caregiver.
Living from the experience and observation of Earth’s cycles, in deep reverence for all of Her generosity.
Therapist: crystals, dreams, somatic education, holistic herbalism. Conscious and medicinal cooking and teaching, shamanic healer.
Creativity and healing are the two beacons that guide and inspire each aspect of this work in all of its complementary diversity.
I live in Sintra where I co-founded Senhora d’Azenha – Ecology, art, therapy and earth spirituality.
I am licensed in business communication and marketing, the need for a more humanised life in further connection with art, nutrition and healing led me to rebell and stop working in this field.
I have a profound reverence and connection to the Body and the Earth, which has guided me in furthering my studies in ritual dance, conscious and medicinal nutrition, herbalism, feminine crystal therapy, dream therapy, somatic education. I offer individual therapeutic sessions as well as informal circles and teaching in all these areas.
My vision is that of a coherent and integrative work where healing and personal development meet and allow for a life with more connection to ourselves by honouring ciclicity, the sacred within each day, and the living Earth that sustains us. So that we may create and share abundant resources for health through respect and reverence.
