Manu Bazzano UKCP MBACP

About me

My work is an extension of my way of being in the world. More a vocation than a job: an aspiration to be a host, to allow space and time for exploration and healing; a deep trust in the autonomy, uniqueness, and inner resources of each individual.
I am a qualified psychotherapist and counsellor,  UKCP and BACP registered. I work with individuals and couples dealing with life transitions, relationship issues, finding meaning and direction in life, addictions, low self-esteem, creativity, and sexuality. I was born in Italy and lived in London since 1990; I am an Anglo-Italian bilingual
