About me

In our daily lives, each of us might be struggling with feelings coming from past experiences or current situation. As an example, the pandemic and the different lockdowns had shown us how much we need our environment to be safe and accessible, and how important is to look after our mental health. Having someone in a professional setting, with whom you can talk about these struggles and feelings in a safe and non-judgemental way, is essential. Therapy will help you finding your own coping strategies and empowering you to move on in your daily life.

I offer a flexible approach, using psychodynamic therapy and focusing on each individual with their needs and emotions. I am trained in short-term and long-term therapy. I am also qualified in DIT (Dynamic Interpersonal Training), which is a semi-structured short-term (16 sessions) approach developed for mood disorders. An initial consultation will help us decide which therapy is best for you. I offer therapy in Italian if required.

I have wide experience working with Mental Health and in different settings within the community, including a prison and a mental health charity. I offer therapy for clients experiencing different mental health issues, such as anxiety and depression. In addition, I work with clients who have experienced abuse and present with complex trauma and dissociation. As well as with clients who are struggling with substance dependance or that grew up with parents who had an addiction problem.

Please do not hesitate to contact me for any further information. I will be happy to have a 15 minutes phone conversation (free of charge) to discuss the best course of therapy for you.
