I am an experienced integrative counsellor/psychotherapist and a registered member of the BACP and abide by their Ethical Framework for good Practice.
I believe it takes great courage to see a counsellor and I fully respect the clients motivation for being in the room with me. Sometimes there is no clear reason why we seek counselling.
Anxiety is one reason clients take the first step. Anxiety is like a 'smoke alarm' and is there for a reason. I help explore these reasons in order to understand the underlying issue linked to the anxiety and work with tools and skills to manage the anxiety while understanding it's root cause.
My aim is to provide a safe environment in which the client feels safe to explore and build trust. Trust is a key element in building a trusting therapeutic relationship and other relationships in our lives.
My commitment is to provide counselling in a confidential environment, where you will be heard, not judged and not told what to do but rather to explore your options!
I work in 'life transitions' whether the client is going through a divorce, bereavement, having a child or changing career. Sometimes this can be very hard to deal with and having an impartial reflection can be of great benefit.
I am a trained Integrative counsellor/psychotherapist. I trained at Roehampton University in Integrative Counselling BSc Honours: Person Centred Therapy, Psychodynamic Therapy and Existential Therapy. I am a Registered member of the British Association of Counselling Psychotherapy (RMBACP). My Placements while training were in Adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse and working with teenagers with social problems in group and one to one sessions.
LANGUAGES & DIVERSITY
I speak both English and Italian fluently (English is my first language) and work in both languages. Having moved to the UK from abroad in 1990, I understand the challenges that settling into a different culture can bring.
I also do a lot of my work online: Skype, Face Time and Google hangouts.
