I am a chartered psychologist, counsellor and psychotherapist, HCPC and BACP registered, with several years' experience working extensively with adult and adolescent patients and using a Cognitive Behavioural approach (CBT).
I am currently working as a private therapist in Marylebone, Central London (W1).
My career has always been driven by my strong passion for mental health issues and support to people.
As a psychotherapist, I have gained experience helping people from all over the world on issues related to anxiety, stress, low mood, low self esteem, problems in relationships and attachment, parenting and pregnancy, anger and sleep problems.
I am specialised in providing CBT, a method that has extensively proven its effectiveness in helping patients suffering from several psychological difficulties.
I am well aware that seeking help or therapy is not always an easy decision. Most of the times this very decision implies undertaking a process of reflection and the awareness that something feels off - or is simply nor alright - and that pain or emotional discomfort are involved.
Psychotherapy can be the answer as it represents a tool to better deal with the important and delicate moment in which we come to terms with who we are and we allow ourselves to change.
Therapy indeed can help you nurturing your personal resources and overcoming the barriers that are blocking you from reaching what you would like.
Therefore if you have any question or doubt, please feel free to contact me before booking a session.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC)
The HCPC are an independent, UK-wide health regulator. They set standards of professional training, performance and conduct for 16 professions.
They keep a register of health professionals who meet their standards, and they take action if registered health professionals fall below those standards. They were created by a piece of legislation called the Health Professions Order 2001.
Registration means that a health professional meets national standards for their professional training, performance and conduct.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)
BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).
Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.
Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.
All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
