About me

I help clients deal with anxiety, anger and relationship issues. Some of the more common anxiety-related problems are panic attacks, social anxiety, OCD, and PTSD. My approach is based on the discoveries of CBT on thoughts and beliefs, Gestalt therapy (which I studied at MA level) and motivational interviewing. I support clients understand what is causing distress and take action to make positive changes.

I am an accredited psychotherapist and a registered counsellor offering short-term, long-term and on-line psychotherapy as well as sessions in Italian.

When anxiety bites hard

Living with high levels of anxiety impacts work, relationships and the overall ability to enjoy life. Therapy starts with identifying all aspects of anxiety: thoughts, emotions, behaviours and physical sensations. At times clients find out that they have been extremely critical of themselves for a long time, or that their confidence is extremely low. Other times relationships with others are difficult to manage and feelings of loneliness and isolation increase anxiety.

Anxiety-related issues include panic attacks, OCD, social anxiety, generalised anxiety and PTSD (my articles on anxiety can be found at the bottom of this page).

Choosing the right therapist is not easy task. I offer a 10-minute free telephone consultation to support clients make the right choice. Feel free to email or phone me with no obligation to book a first meeting at a reduced price or arrange a telephone call.
