Hello and welcome to my profile!
I am a practitioner qualified both in England and in Italy, with over 10 years of research and practice.
My clients are central to my work and I aim at providing you with a safe and non-judgmental environment where you can feel acknowledged, listened to and supported.
I am a psychotherapist with long experience working with people suffering from depression, anxiety and stress. My areas of expertise include low self-esteem, communication and relationship issues, trauma, physical and emotional abuse, pregnancy and motherhood, eating disorders, bereavement, abortion and miscarriage.
I also have a special interest in personal relationships, helping individuals and couples change dysfunctional patterns and enjoy more fulfilling rapports with others. Furthermore, I am an occupational psychologist, expert in working with people who suffer from work-related-stress.
Whatever the reasons that bring you to start therapy, I will create a bespoke programme that will help you overcome your problems and feel happy and hopeful again. You will find relief from your symptoms and you will reach closure with any unfinished business that is preventing you to enjoy your life.
I will guide you along a path of positive change and empowerment, with an aim at recovering your wellbeing.
You will be able to dismiss dysfunctional patterns of behaviours and discover new, healthier and happier ways of living. You will understand yourself, your personal goals and your values better. As a result, you will be able to reach your full potential.

I am a registered provider with Axa PPP, Cigna, WPA and Aviva health insurance companies.

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.
