About me

I am a licensed clinical psychologist in Italy and UK, based in London who provides therapy in Italian and in English, in my own studio and on line. I have many years of experience working in a variety of setting including clinical mental health and private practice. I work with adults and adolescents, struggling with mood, anxiety issues, PTSD, relationship difficulties, body image disturbance, emotional and relationship disorders, burnout and work-related stress, bullying and low self-esteem. I offer my service to individuals, families and couples, women and men in the transition to parenthood.

I work from a humanistic and systemic perspective, which means I believe in treating a person as a whole, in his/her life environment, rather than just addressing symptoms. Additionally, I integrate complementary methodologies and techniques to offer a highly personalised tailored approach to each client. I also deliver Skype sessions all over Europe.

If you want to know more about, you can call me for a first free enquiry call to speak about your issues and any doubts you may have about therapy and the help I could give you.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Further information

I work from a humanistic and systemic perspective, which means I believe in treating a person as a whole, in his/her life environment, rather than just addressing symptoms.
Additionally, I integrate complementary methodologies and techniques to offer a highly personalised tailored approach to each client.
I also deliver Skype sessions all over Europe and I have some clients oversea.

I notice that Skype sessions are beneficial not only when people cannot reach my private studios because they live faraway or in another city and country. Indeed, on line therapy seems to help some patients to feel at their ease whether they need to express sadness, anger and tears.

Someone claims it is actually easier to open up and express themselves when they are in their own comfort zone, such as their house, room, garden or even their workplace.

Although, I personally believe, Skype therapy is a strong and functional tool, I manage to meet my patients who live in Europe every four months in order to enrich the quality of our relationship and the work we are doing together.
