About me

I am an experienced Family and Systemic Psychotherapist and Practitioner Psychologist (qualified as Clinical Psychologist in Italy and recognised as Counselling/Forensic Psychologist by HCPC in Uk).

I am used to work with individuals, couples and families with an empathetic and clear attitude, in a warm and safe environment.

My approach and methods of work are concentrated on improving relationships and communication. I work exploring through them in order to increase the awareness of the self, by helping you to achieve a healthy balance and personal psychological well-being along with assisting you to find solutions.

Psychotherapy is an excellent opportunity to understand and gain experience of yourself.

I offer daily and evening sessions in Italian (mother tongue) and English language.

HCPC

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.

BACP

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.
