I offer psychotherapy in Italian, Spanish, French as well as English to both adults and children, on an individual basis.
People come to therapy for all sorts of reasons, but perhaps the hardest decision is to make up one's mind to ask for help. In therapy the individual is invited to talk freely about their difficulties, relationships, past experiences and fears.
Therapy is an opportunity to understand the causes of one's distress through an exploration of unconscious processes. This understanding can enable the individual to find their solutions.
Psychotherapy and counselling are talking treatments that can help you overcoming emotional difficulties and free yourself from unwanted and painful ways of feeling, thinking and behaving.
Sessions can be arranged on an open ended basis or for an agreed time period. It is possible to discuss an appointment on the phone prior to coming along for a session.
My practice is located in Central London, within easy reach of Marylebone and Fizrovia.
You can find out more about public lectures on Saturdays on my website.

Work with children
Children, are referred for different concerns. Learning difficulties, concerns with behaviour, emotional and social concerns, separation, bereavement and anxieties.
In the work with children, I use a variety of means such as talk, play and arts to facilitate communication with the child in a safe space.
As well as working individually with children and adolescents, I also work with parents, either individually or in joint session with their child. Sometimes children’s difficulties bring up unresolved issues for parents which can trigger difficult emotional responses. By talking about these responses, the difficulties can be explored and thought about.
