About me

I am a mature therapist with almost 20 years experience.

I work intuitively and creatively in a warm, interactive and non judgmental way building on your strengths and qualities, helping you to find clarity and release during times of difficulties and tension.
I believe that a crisis allows us to take a fresh look at our life and to understand what needs change so difficult times can become an opportunity for getting in touch with inner wisdom, for the fulfillment of aspirations and potential. They can make us more open to life, more emotionally resilient and more compassionate.
I have a lot of experience with issues like stress and anxiety, depression and loneliness, relationships (especially difficulty in communication and affairs) loss and life transitions, trauma, binge eating, work problems, career, burnout, bullying etc.).

Every session is absolutely confidential and lasts 60 minutes. The first appointment is just a space for us to begin to know each other and establish a bond. From the start I will endeavour to give you an idea of where I see us going and what is my understanding of your needs. I focus on the understanding of the past, on being in the present and on building the future so that all aspects of your experience are explored, honoured and taken care of.

My office is a few minutes from Warwick Avenue and Maida Vale tube stations.

I work in English and in Italian

I am fully registered with the following medical insurances:

Cost of therapy is between £70 and £80 depending on your circumstances.
