I can offer an interactive approach to counselling, which involves helping you through life’s challenges as a non-judgemental participator, rather than an impassive observer. Many of my clients have previously experienced counselling as unsatisfactory due to the lack of human connection by counsellors. From my extensive experience as a counsellor, I have found that having a more active role with my clients has not only helped them feel that someone truly cares, but it has helped in developing a deeper working relationship with my clients, leading to more positive outcomes.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a fully qualified integrative counsellor. I have experience in a wide range of issues including depression, anxiety, stress management, bereavement, sexuality or other sexual issues and relationship difficulties. I am also familiar with western European cultures, as well as Middle Eastern cultures and I am fluent in English, Italian and Farsi. I, myself, am a second generation Italian from immigrant parents and I can, therefore, understand the many difficulties that may arise from living in a foreign country.
I have achieved a Foundation Degree in Counselling with Distinction at Bristol University and a BA Honours Degree in Counselling at Gloucester University. I have also continued my CPD (continued professional development) at Network Counselling and Training, where I have worked as a volunteer counsellor for over 6 years.
