Cristiana Battistuzzi UKCP Reg
Welcome to my profile.
As a psychotherapist and Counsellor I assist and support clients to explore and clarify feelings, thoughts and behaviours that might be causing distress, anxiety, low self-esteem or ongoing sadness. Together we can reflect on current concerns, identify issues and unhelpful patterns and consider more beneficial and empowering strategies to deal with life challenges. My approach is integrative, incorporating psychodynamic, existential and humanistic modalities.
I am experienced in working with a variety of issues and backgrounds and I abide by the UKCP code of ethics.

Registered / Accredited
