name is Glaucia Maria de Queiroz. I graduated in Psychology at the Federal
University of Minas Gerais, Brazil, in 1996. I received the majors
in Clinical Psychology and Baccalaureates in Psychology. In 2009 I applied
and underwent the examinations of the Gesundheitsamt
Nürnberg in order to get the license in Heilpratikerin fur Psychotherapie
which enables those ones who passed the right to carry on psychotherapy
in German territory.
In Brazil, much too different from what occurs in Germany, Psychology course deals a lot more with practice, which allowed me in my graduation studies, spare time myself to psychoanalysis under the supervision of a very competent and experienced Professor who also watched over me during my first working years at a private office.
And besides, when attending university, I worked for a couple of years as counselor and assistant in adults schooling field in a context as to academic research in the UFMG.
As soon as I finished my studies, I worked as school psychologist and
career and job counselor, Personnel department psychology; and I voluntarily
followed in a Day care Center the history of a young boy who had partial
cerebral palsy and, above all, I also worked in adults' psychologist in
my private Office.
After having moved to Germany, I ended up in Training and Consulting field, becoming a consulter/coach in the intercultural training area, getting executives as well as other German professional ready to work abroad getting in contact with different cultures, different countries and its inhabitants, being Latin America obviously the main focus of my job. A steady professional formation in the intercultural Field, as well as my own experience as immigrant in Ireland and Germany; my experience with couples whose spouse come from different countries and my continuous personal and Professional contact with people whose origin range from a variety of at least 20 different countries directed my intercultural
Psychotherapy and led me into making up my mind that those cultural background Aspects would be the basis for my psychotherapy job in Germany. Here follow some examples of psychiatric problems that often show up in my clinic work:
