Meet your Host

Claudia Nielsen PhD

I was born in Brazil and came to the UK in my twenties. Here I married, and brought up my three boys, now all grown up. Throughout my adult life I worked in a variety of industries and in my 40’s went back to Psychology – studied in Brazil – and retrained in psychotherapy, my current profession. My interests are all connected with my passion for life and living and I see human beings as an expression of a meaningful Universe. I am a Vice President of the SMN.
