About me

Throughout years of practice I have developed confidence in supporting people with stress, anxiety, depression and feeling lost and hopeless.

In my perception, counselling therapy  is a way of helping people to overcome stress, emotional problems, relationship problems or troublesome habits.

Nowadays I tend to work with issues like anxiety, depression,  difficulties due to trauma and changes, bereavement and chronic-illness. I use integrative models from CBT, Mindfulness, Creative Meditation
to Psychosynthesis. I am however open to explore and support you with other issues that you might experience.

I offer short or long term counselling therapy for a wide range of issues using humanistic and integrative models. I was trained at the Psychosynthesis Education Trust, where I was awarded with a PG Dip. in Psychosynthesis Counselling.   I have developed skills working with different therapeutic models in a wide range of services across London.

My aim is to support you focusing on unresolved past patterns, present issues and future potential. I will enable the best conditions for your own exploration and discovery through genuine empathy and understanding and practical and creative interventions.

In the past I have worked for a NHS Bereavement Service and for a local charity that supports people living with depression, anxiety and chronic illness.

I can offer counselling therapy in three different languages, Including English, Italian (mother tongue) and Spanish.

I work full time for NHS during 9AM-5PM, however I am available to see clients in my private counselling practice, based just off Liverpool Street Station.
In my private counselling practice I can work with clients and groups, mainly during evenings ( 6pm-10pm) and week ends.

Member organisations


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.

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.
