Connect Counselling & Psychotherapy

Connect Counselling and Psychotherapy honours the fundamental need of all human beings; that is to find relational fulfilment, understanding our connection with others and with ourselves. We aim to help those who struggle with the many challenges we face in life and in our closer relationships; from frequent miscommunication, to negative attitudes, rigid mindsets and difficult emotions.  

Sometimes, the hurt and pain we receive can make us lose hope, and enriching and nourishing relationships can seem so far away. In very evident ways, relational struggles deeply impact our moods and emotions. Anxiety and depression are two very common results, in turn blocking our openness and enjoyment of life. Yet, when you choose to travel with a highly trained and caring professional partner, we can turn such setbacks into a liberating journey. Connect deeply believes in partnering with you in this journey of explorative solution-finding.

Leonardo Talpo

The Business of Marriage

Since 2004 my passion has been helping married couples to live a more meaningful and fulfilling individual and family life. More than 400 couples of different cultures, with their stories, have equipped me with countless of insights and knowledge that helped the building of my applying marriage counselling model. My Intersystem tailor-made Model of the Marriage creates a sustainable breakthrough in the struggling couples, helping them organically progress and re-design the relationship they always wished.

Often, marriage deteriorates to the point of no return before partners even decide that something must be done. Waiting does not help improve your marriage, very often is too late! Successful couples develop through a continuous process of self-study, education, trust, respect, commitment, love, experience, forgiveness and a sustainable healthy intimacy.

Love and romance is what we all long for, but make no mistake, in The Business of Marriage, marriage is work!

White Canvas Therapy

I am a psychoanalyst and I like to work with individuals, families, couples, teenagers and older children and I also give workshops on family matters. I started my journey through Freud & Lacan, but today I gather to my work a lot using broader concepts of psychoanalysis of contemporary thinkers like Winnicott, Ferenczi, the relational thinkers like Lewis Aron, Steve Mitchell and Joyce Slochower.

My compromise is to always be learning and updated among the recent theories and modalities, filtering what is serious and what is relevant to a deeper construction with my patients that can result on good understanding of themselves. I don’t believe in BandAid therapy, or any method of “easy psychotherapy” as I believe we have to dig deeper to understand past patterns and the underlying reasons why we put ourselves in situations that we would like to be different. I believe there are therapeutical tools and techniques very helpful in specific phases of our lives, but I do believe everyone should allow themselves into the experience of going through the psychoanalysis journey so one can have a better understanding of themselves. Although it may sound harsh, I do have an empathic observation of what is brought from my patients, and we constantly work together on alternative solutions, possibilities and scenarios. I am an accessible therapist who does desire a lot of good outcomes to my patients.
