Thank you for taking the time to stop and read my profile. My name is Piero Dell'Anno and I am a registered clinical psychotherapist with the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) and a registered psychotherapeutic counsellor with the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
I have worked both in the National Health Service (NHS) and in the private sector since qualifying in 2010, and I have gained extensive experience of working with a wide spectrum of clients within primary care settings.
I assist my clients on a short to long term basis presenting with a highly diverse range of difficulties from mild depression and anxiety to trauma, panic attacks, issues with bereavement and loss, self-harm, difficulties managing emotions, difficulties managing anger, relationship problems, low self-esteem, sexual identity issues and other difficulties.
I have also been involved in supporting other mental health clinicians and health professionals, running reflective practice groups for mental health practitioners. I currently work in a primary care service for the NHS, with individuals presenting with depression, anxiety and other mental health issues.
One of my main clinical interests is working with clients who have experienced developmental/attachment trauma and, as adults, are experiencing interpersonal issues and couple/relationship issues. I also assist clients struggling with sexual identity issues.
I have experience of applying a variety of theoretical perspectives in my clinical work including Relational Gestalt, Counselling for Depression (CfD), Compassion Focussed Therapy (CFT) and Integrative Psychotherapy and, last but not least, Couple Therapy for Depression.
My clinical work is extensively based on humanistic, existential-phenomenological and mindfulness-based approaches.
I am able to undertake clinical treatment in English, Italian and French.
Amongst other issues I can also assist clients who are experiencing:
Panic attacks, anxiety and phobia
Depression, lack of self-esteem and self-worth
Couples relationship and difficulty to bond with other individuals
Reduced ability to deal with stress and stressful events
Difficulty with memory, the ability to make plans and commitments
Work related issues, conflict at work and performance
I work in West Hampstead, Farrington, Islington and Central London.
I am a registered psychotherapeutic counsellor and clinical psychotherapist with the following insurances:
Cigna: registered provider
AXA PPP: psychotherapist
Aviva: registered provider
VitalityHealth: registered psychotherapist
What I believe counselling is
I believe that choosing a counsellor or a psychotherapist is a very important decision for any client, as counselling is fundamentally a relationship based on trust and care. Through the counselling alliance, I support my clients to enhance their growth and to access the emotional relational and environmental resources that support their ongoing well-being.
There are times in our lives when we feel lost, without energy and we turn in a loop seeking for alternatives, or without any energy we feel as if we are no longer capable to cope with the stressful events of life.
Talking about our fears and sharing our feelings helps healing the pain and recovering from the stressful events.
How can I help
I work with my clients relationally, helping you to become aware of your full potential. Together we will use self discovery as an empowering process to deal with life issues.
During our journey together, I will sustain and accompany you in rediscovering these strengths and in learning how to utilise them, to face the challenges that might occur during your life.
