About me

I am a qualified Psychologist and Psychotherapist specialised in supporting men and women experiencing emotional distress.
I provide a safe and confidential space where we will explore together your personal circumstances, linking the past with the present, and working towards the future.

Expert in working with feeling 'lost', worried, low, stressed. And circumstances such as life-changes, loss, traumatic experiences, and relationships issues (with partners, families, friends, colleagues, and so on).

I offer an initial 90 minutes Consultation where we can discuss what you are looking for and what I can offer, as well as make recommendations for the kind of therapeutic approach that might best suit your needs.

I can provide sessions remotely online (video or audio), as well as face to face in Central London (London Bridge).
I offer sessions in English or Italian, also for individuals living outside of the UK.
I work to the Code of Ethics of my Professional Standards Authority Registers (BPC, BACP, HCPC).

I have Professional Indemnity Insurance.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have over 14 years of training and experience in the public and private services.

I am a qualified Counselling Psychologist (D.Psych.) as well as a Psychotherapist working with a Psychodynamic approach.

I am currently interested in providing mental health support and a space to explore life events to individuals experiencing emotional difficulties and are struggling to manage their feelings while navigating their everyday life and relationships, especially the one with oneself.

I work both in the NHS as a Specialised Practitioner and in Private Practice as a Psychotherapist.

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.

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

BPC

British Psychoanalytic Council

The British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC) is a professional association, representing the profession of psychoanalytic psychotherapy.

The organisation is itself made up of fourteen member organisations and BPC accredits the trainings of its member organisations. An individual who qualifies from one of these trainings is then eligible for entry into the BPC's register.

BPC registrants are governed by a code of ethics, a policy of continuing professional development, a statement on confidentiality and a complaints procedure. The BPC is a Member Society of the European Federation for Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy in the Public Sector (EFPP). Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

HCPC

Health and Care Professions Council

The HCPC are an independent, UK-wide health regulator. They set standards of professional training, performance and conduct for 16 professions.

They keep a register of health professionals who meet their standards, and they take action if registered health professionals fall below those standards. They were created by a piece of legislation called the Health Professions Order 2001.

Registration means that a health professional meets national standards for their professional training, performance and conduct.

Accredited register membership

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
