I am a Counselling Psychologist HCPC registered and MBACP. I work with a humanistic approach (Gestalt). This means I focus my work on the client’s individual experience and on the sense that it has for the clients.
I consider therapy as a creative process between the client and the therapist. A creative process which starts from a stuck point in life that could be a symptom, a feeling of loss, fear of death, time running out or a transition from one life stage into the next. The client and the therapist work together to find a better and a new way to take on life. For me therapy is not about “curing something wrong inside us” but an opportunity to transform our dysfunctional way to be. This transformation process is possible through awareness and taking responsibility on our life, our needs and desires with the goal to create a good quality of life.
My aim is to support you focusing on unresolved past patterns, present issues and future potential. I will enable the best conditions for your own exploration and discovery through genuine empathy and understanding and practical and creative interventions.
I offer psychological support in Italian and English.
I have experience in working with children, adults, groups and in IAPT low and high intensity service (NHS counselling service), supporting people living with depression anxiety, low self-esteem and chronic illness.
I offer a non-judgmental, safe, confidential space to explore your thoughts and feelings, in your own time and at your own pace. Together we look at your concerns, while exploring events in the past that may be having an impact on how you live in the present and the relationship you have with yourself and those around you.
