About me

Personal Approach

  • I am a certified Transactional Analyst and Integrative psychotherapist and this has allowed me, in my more than than twenty years of experience as a practitioner, to integrated and personalise my therapeutic approach in listening and understanding people and the issues they bring to me. I believe that each individual is unique, therefore each therapeutic 'journey' is 'tailored' to every single individual according to their needs. In my philosophy and frame of reference I consider human relationship as being central in supporting healthy development, I also believe that in any emotional distress and/or behavioural discomfort and/or trauma there is a history or story of relational 'rupture(s)'. Therefore I see the therapeutic relationship as an experience in which a reparative process can develop.
  • I have lived and worked in Italy for many years and am used to working within diversity and cultural issues.
  • I am experienced in working through Skype, when required/necessary.
  • I am fluent in English/Italian


I am recognised as a Supervisor by: UKCP UKATA & IIPA.


I train in various Psychotherapy Training Institutes in UK and Italy.
