About me

Hello, my name is Antonella and thank you for visiting my page. I aim to help my clients work through difficult periods of their life, by exploring issues together in a non-judgmental, empathic and caring environment.

Counselling can help you to get things off your chest, and confidentially explore any problems you may be facing. It can also help you to process your feelings and emotions, leading to a better understanding of yourself.

There are times in everyone’s life when we need help, not only with physical ailments but also with our minds. You may be feeling confused, upset, angry or experiencing a loss of direction; therapy can help unpick all of this. You may be experiencing relationship issues and are not sure how to approach them, or just feel ‘stuck’. I can offer both short and long-term therapy, depending on what issues you bring and how deep they run. We can unknowingly carry traumatic experiences around with us, which can impact upon our mind, body and behaviours.

I work at your pace, ensuring you will feel heard, comfortable and safe, whilst supporting you in finding your own solutions by empowering you to do so. I provide a safe space with respect and unconditional acceptance, and I believe strongly in building one another’s trust early on in the process.

I have experience in working with clients from all walks of life, who have brought issues that range vastly, such as; depression; anxiety; stress; loss and bereavement; addiction; and abuse to name but a few. I can also help with mindfulness activities, and where appropriate, provide solutions to help change negative ways of thinking.

Member organisations

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.

Accredited register membership
