About me

I am a friendly, approachable and down to earth counsellor. I work in an integrative way which means I am flexible in my approach and use collaboration as the basis of my practice.

As a bilingual therapist, I can also provide counselling in Italian, for those who feel most comfortable speaking in their native tongue.

Training, qualifications & experience

I hold a degree in Psychology, a Level 6 Cert. in Counselling Skills, Level 7 Post Grad Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling and I am currently working for registration as a Child Psychotherapist with UKCP. I am registered with BACP.

I am experienced in working with Adults, Children and their families. I work as part of a multi-disciplinary team in a wide range of UK mental health services and I also work with adolescents and primary aged children in school settings.

Member organisations


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.
