I’m Cátia, the person behind Mindmoodpsychonutrition.

I’m based in London but originally from Portugal where I grew up surrounded by the lemon and persimmon trees at my parent’s house, the mediterranean flavours of my grandmother’s cooking and the sea in the horizon from my bedroom window.

In late 2010, I moved to London with the childhood dream to live in a different country and start a career as a Psychologist.  

After many years of working within the health and social care sector as a Psychologist/Therapist, I qualified as a Nutritional Therapist to begin a new chapter in my life. 

Mindmoodpsychonutrition is my other dream come true.

In 2019, I founded Mindmoodpsychonutrition with the aim to support individuals leading happier lives as well as working collaboratively with organisations whose mission is to raise awareness of the importance of optimum health and well-being and empower people to take greater control of their own physical and mental health. 

My ultimate mission is also to create value and system change through a journey that starts from within and to always be a beacon of hope and courage for those around me.
