About me

I am a professionally trained and qualified psychodynamic therapist. I see clients in private practice in central London (near Oxford Circus) and in central Cambridge (CB5).

My background is in education. I taught in a variety of settings and practiced as a literary translator for several years before training as a therapist.

I use my background to help clients make sense of how we communicate with others and with ourselves too. As a psychodynamic counsellor I pay attention to what may be going on under the surface and to the ways past experiences can shape our current lives.

After completing my training I worked as a child and adolescent therapist and team leader in schools and as a student counsellor at a university. I currently work as a staff and student counsellor in secondary and HE and have a private practice where I see clients from a variety of backgrounds and cultures.

I offer short- and long-term contracts. I am fluent in English and Italian and I am happy to work in both languages.
