I am a qualified Psychodynamic Psychotherapist with a background in Clinical Psychology. From the beginning of my career I have been both dedicated and passion-driven; over the years I have worked to combine reflective and analytic skills with a solid academic background. This has given me the opportunity to mature both personally and professionally. I have ten years experience working with children, adolescents and adults with a wide range of needs. My passion and speciality is helping adults and young adults experiencing temporary and/or long term mental health difficulties, assessing what is most appropriate to every person's need.
I work with you to define the parameters of the treatment, with the final purpose of increasing self-awareness and building up internal resources.
My approach is psychodynamic. This kind of therapy is valuable both in the case of particular emotional difficulties and mental health issues, such as Depression, Anxiety, panic attacks, low self-esteem or complex relationships patterns, as well as simply to deepen the individual’s understanding of him/herself.
Patients attend a fifty-minute session once per week. The terms of the therapeutic contract, which include time, frequency and breaks, will be agreed together during the first consultation session (which has a duration of one-one and a half hours). My approach is very attuned and each individual need will be carefully assessed case by case.
I can work both in English and Italian language.
Training, qualifications & experience
I achieved the "Professional Qualification in Intercultural Psychodynamic Psychotherapy" (Qualifying course in psychodynamic psychotherapy) at the Tavistock and Portman Foundation Trust in London. This followed the “Foundation Course in Psychodynamic Psychotherapy Part One”.
I am a member of the British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC) and the Tavistock Society of Psychotherapists (TSP).
My background is Clinical Psychology. I achieved a Master degree in clinical psychology at "La Sapienza" University of Rome and I am registered as an Italian Psychologist to the “Ordine degli Psicologi” (Italia).
Over the past years I have worked in many different work settings; in addition to my Private Practice and the therapeutic work developed during my intense training at the Tavistock and Portman clinic, my experience ranges from working in primary and secondary education, supporting young people with psychological, mental health, cognitive and behavioural issues, to leading with psychiatric and severe mental illness within the NHS.
