Mindmoodpsychonutrition- Catia Soares
I'm Catia Soares, a qualified Psychologist and Nutritional Therapist and the person behind Mindmoodpsychonutrition - nutritional therapy & lifestyle support for positive emotional and mental well-being.
I have worked in the statutory and voluntary sector for the last 10 years delivering one-to-one and group therapy, counselling and psychosocial support to people with enduring mental health issues, entrenched substance use and history of homelessness, abuse and offending behaviour.
I further specialised in Naturopathic Nutritional Therapy at CNM College London to enrich my work with clients and combine my passions: Psychology and Nutrition.
I have always been passionate about supporting people to lead fulfilling and happier lives. I offer integrated mind, nutritional and lifestyle support for people who want to achieve optimum health through positive emotional & mental well-being.
I work holistically, incorporating the principles of buddhism, humanistic psychology, trauma informed psychotherapy, compassionate focused therapy and naturopathy/functional medicine.
I offer tailored and person-centred face-to-face/online one-to-one consultations, corporate wellness, consultancy services, public speaking and health & wellness coaching.
