About me

I am an experienced Psychotherapist and Psychologist, originally from Rome,  who moved to London many years ago to pursue a Masters Degree in Psychotherapy. I am very passionate about my job.

Through my experience I came to realise that each person is facing a unique combination of experiences and my only intention is to offer the RIGHT SPACE where you can explore what is troubling you. I aim to build an authentic therapeutic relationship, to promote your independency and ACCEPT YOU AS YOU ARE.

In these regards I follow a Person-Centred Theory, which is a variant of the Humanistic Approach. This means that you are at the centre of the work. I, therefore, value your individuality, respond to your unique needs, which will eventually empower your full potential.

I gained extensive experience around drug and alcohol addictions together with general Addiction Behaviours.

I am specialised in PTSD, trauma, domestic violence, general anxiety disorder, depression and sexual abuse.

I am also well prepared to offer comprehensive support services to clients from a variety of backgrounds with a wide range of needs.

Further information

AIM OF THERAPY:

Firstly you should ensure that you only go to see a therapist who is fully qualified and experienced, and registered and accredited with a professional body (UKCP or BACP).

Within the initial session you can generally establish whether the service I offer is the right fit for you. Following, you can decide a more convenient time and we can agree how to structure our work together.

The therapeutic change occurs approximately three months after the beginning of therapy, however this is only an indicative period. There is not a time limit for therapy, rather it is flexible and creative following your own personal needs.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
