About me

Hi! My name is Benedetta, but everyone calls me Bene.

I believe therapy is a personal journey of self discovery and acceptance of yourself as a whole.

Therapy is a powerful and transformative process, and finding the right guidance is important in feeling safe and supported in this journey.

My aim is to help you understand yourself better, guiding you to find your own ways to navigate your mental health journey. I believe you can become empowered to find tools for self healing, find resilience and develop self-trust and acceptance for yourself.

My job as a therapist it to walk alongside you in your healing journey, offering a safe space, support and tools for you to explore your current issues at your own pace. I believe that we all have the tools within us to find our way through life's challenges.

I offer support to individuals navigating life's challenges such life changes, stress, anxiety, depression, burnout, low mood, relationships issues and the symptoms of past trauma.

I use an integrative approach to therapy that takes into account the person as a whole: mind, body, spirit.
My approach comes from Pluralistic counselling, which means that I use different schools and techniques depending on what suits you best.
I also implement visualisation techniques, mindfulness, breath work and somatic exercises based on Yoga practices. 
I have 8 years of experience working with people in a clinical setting as a chiropractor. This has informed my understanding of the mind body connection, and the importance of treating the person as a whole.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

NCPS
National Counselling & Psychotherapy Society (NCPS)

The National Counselling and Psychotherapy Society

This Not For Profit association of counsellors and psychotherapists aim to support the counselling profession, members and training organisations.

In 2013 the NCS register was accredited by the Professional Standards Authority under the Accredited Voluntary Register Scheme. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

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.
