About me

If you are here it might be that there is something happening inside you right now. We can try to look at that together.
I'm Giovanni, a Psychologist and Psychotherapist, and I firmly believe that the therapeutic relationship is the main vessel of real change. Therapy is a journey to be embarked on safely.

We will work together towards your objectives, it doesn't matter how far they seem now.

I am open and every time happy to discuss the way we work together, and I will invite you to share your thoughts about our work.

I provide psychotherapy for individuals and couples of any age and background, racial identity, and gender.

I have a particular interest in Analytical Psychology and Relational Transactional Analysis.

I work especially with:

  • Feeling hopeless and stuck
  • Identity (Racial, Sexual, Gender, Neurodivergence)
  • Fragmentation, Trauma, Panic
  • Dreams
  • Sexuality
  • Eating disorders
  • Psychosis
  • Making sense of what happens or has happened

I subscribe to the Code of Ethics of the HCPC and UKCP, and I am fully covered by Professional Liability Insurance.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am an Italian integrative Chartered Counselling Psychologist and Psychotherapist (HCPC and BPS accredited, UKCP Accredited). I am a Transactional Analyst Psychotherapist (CTA) and a Provisional Training and Supervising Transactional Analyst (PTSTA).

I have over a decade of experience working with people in mental health and social care, both in private and public settings.

I have experience with Autism, Psychosis, and Eating Disorders as a Psychologist first and then as a Psychotherapist. These impactful settings and experiences, and the people I have met during them, have taught me that there is no pain that cannot be attended to.
