About me

I am a qualified Psychologist and Psychotherapist specialised in supporting individuals that are 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 15 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.


British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC)

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.


Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC)

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.


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.
