We are proud to introduce our Clinical Director Ana Carla Garcia. Based at ‘Cabeço’ her duties include overseeing our day to day clinical work. Her approachable, caring and passionate persona endears her to staff and guests alike.

Caring and approachable

Ana is proficient in English and has very good organisational and time management skills.

She has embraced our innovative project and greatly contributed to its growth and development for our staff and guests alike.

As a psychotherapist, Ana seeks to gain a better understanding of people’s behaviour, assessing our guests needs through a systemic intervention, without forgetting the importance of their beliefs and emotions.

She strongly believes in the inner transformation of every individual, their ability to develop new skills, and how influences and experiences in groups can benefit them.

The love for new challenges

With her inquisitive mind for all forms of intervention like Mindfulness, Meditation, Reflexology, Reiki, Coaching, Ana embraces challenges, opening new horizons rather than relying on the acquired experience and knowledge.

Patient but persistent, Ana always seeks to focus on the positive side of life, seeing obstacles as opportunities to grow and learn. ‘I never lose, either I win or I learn’

Ana holds a degree in psychology from the University of Porto in 1999 and has been building her career motivated by teamwork, surrounded by people who believe in change.

In 2008 Ana was awarded a Post graduated in safeguarding vulnerable children and gained experience working in different areas, with children, addictive behaviour prevention and coaching and mentoring the unemployed.

Born in Portugal Ana, in her spare time, enjoys the sunshine and beaches that Portugal offers and likes nothing more than renewing her energy levels, with long walks on the beach, letting the sand and water hit her feet while listening to the sound of the waves. She also enjoys reading and listening to music
