About me

One size doesn't fit all. I am a fully qualified Integrative Counsellor and Group Facilitator and have experience in working with NHS, NGOs, schools and private practice. I specialize in addictions and women in addiction, low self esteem, eating disorders, depressions, bereavement and loss, abuse and co-dependency.

There are times in life when we feel the need of something more; an extra hand or help, someone who will not judge us. Somewhere where we can just feel free to be.

I believe in the power of discovery the self through talking and reflecting in a non judgmental environment and Counselling can help to understand better who we are and where we want to go.

As an Integrative counsellor I draw from different theoretical approaches depending on the needs of each individual client.

I offer short and long term therapy on an individual one-to-one basis.

I work in both English and Italian languages.

I am a Registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and of the Federation of Drug & Alcohol Professionals (FDAP) and I follow their Ethical Framework.

My practice is based in Herne Hill, Brixton area of South London

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

L'approccio "taglia unica" no va bene per tutti. Sono una Counsellor e un facilitatore di gruppi di terapia con un vasta esperienza sia nel campo pubblico che privato (NHS, scuole e no-profit), sono specializzata nel campo delle dipendenze di droghe e alcol, donne e abusi di sostanze, bassa stima di se, depressione, disturbi alimentari, lutti e perdite, abusi e codipendenze.

Ci sono momenti nella vita in cui si sente il bisogno di un aiuto in piú, qualcuno o qualcosa che non ci giudichi, dov'é possibile sentirsi liberi di essere.

Credo nella forza della scoperta di se stessi attraverso il mondo della parola e della riflessione, se avviene in un ambiente libero da restrizioni mentali e sicuro. Per questo credo che il Counselling possa aiutare a ritrovarsi e a capire meglio se stessi, la direzione che si vuole prendere e ció che ci circonda.

Il mio é un approccio integrato che mi permettere di usare diversi metodi teorici a seconda dei bisogni dell'utente.

Faccio parte della British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) e della Federation of Drug & Alcohol Professionals (FDAP) e condivido i loro principi etici e professionali.

Member organisations

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.

Accessibility

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.
